"These Times" as written by Livingstone Wordley Brown and Roy Mckenzie....
These times will try hard to define me
And I'll try to hold my head up high
But I've seen despair here from the inside
And it's got a one track mind

And I have this feeling in my gut now
And I don't know what it is I'll find
Does anybody ever feel like,
You're always one step behind?

Now I'm sitting alone here in my bed
I'm waiting for an answer I don't know that I'll get
I cannot stand to look in the mirror
I'm failing
I'm telling you these times are hard
But they will

And I know there's someone out there somewhere
Who has it much worse than I do
But I have a dream inside, a perfect life
I'd give anything just to work
It's like I'm only trynna dig my way out
Of all these thing I can't

And I am
Sitting alone here in my bed
I'm waiting for an answer I don't know that I'll get
I cannot stand to look in the mirror
I'm failing
I'm telling you these times are hard
But they will pass,
They will pass
They will pass
These times are hard
But they will

These times will try hard to define me
But I will hold my head up high

Sitting alone here in my bed
I'm waiting for an answer I don't know that I'll get
I cannot stand to look in the mirror
I'm failing
I'm telling you these times are hard
But they will pass

And I know there's a reason
I just keep hoping it wont be long til I see it
And maybe if we throw up our hands and believe it!
I'm telling you these times are hard
But they will pass
They will pass
They will pass
These times are hard
But they will pass

    My InterpretationI think this song is about a tough time in a relationship, or in life. Maybe just in this economy. It's about knowing that there is light at the end of the tunnel, no matter what the situation

    MemoryI heard this song for the first time eight weeks after the end of my and my ex's relationship. So for me it's about the hard time you go through after being dumped and supposed to go on in life, which I've realised is rally hard. These times are hard. It kind of express the feeling of losing yourself, when you go from loved to lonely. But as time will pass by I guess all will be fine..

    General CommentThis song completely fits my situation. I'm too busy whinning about my life when there are people out there that have it way worse than me.

    General CommentIn the salt lake city concert they performed at he said he wrote this song because he know how hard of a time the world is having. Jobless rates, divorce rates at an all time high, death, wars, and so on. But these times will PASS.
