"These Days" as written by and Jackson Browne....
I've been out walking
I don't do that much talking these days
These days
These days I seem to think a lot
About the things that I forgot to do
And all the times I had the chance to

I've stopped my rambling
I don't do too much gambling these days
These days

These days I seem to think about
How all the changes came about my way
And I wonder if I'll see another highway

I'll keep on moving
I'm bound to be improving these days
These days

And if I seem to be afraid to live the life
That I have made and sown
It's just that I've been healing so long

I've stopped my dreaming
I don't do too much dreaming these days
These days

These days I sit on cornerstones
And count the time in quarter tones to ten
Please don't confront me with my failures
I've not forgotten them

    General CommentCan anyone address the question of how/why these lyrics were so heavily edited/extended vs. the original Jackson Browne version? Reading the writing credits for this song and seeing 3 writers I'd never heard of was a weird experience, since I'm a Browne fan from way back. No knock on Campbell and friends, as Glen was as fine a country/pop singer as I've heard, and an original voice in that category of music. Just weird to see 3 new names and no reference to Browne at all. So, any insights? Thanks for thinkin' about it, anyway.
