"These Days" as written by Estelle Levitt and Helen Miller....
I don't wanna waste time.
I don't wanna wait here,
Deciding whether we should stay or leave baby.

Why you wanna go now?
I don't wanna go now,
Even though our friends are gone
and the lights are on.

You keep sayin' nobody cares
If I'm here, except me well baby that's enough.

I don't wanna let go.
People they get so old.
I hate when people say "Those were the days."
Well what are these then?

I really shoulda stayed home.
So many people I don't really know anymore,
And I got nothin' to say but "I don't know."
I just get so bored.

Over and over I get impatient and angry when feel like I've gone soft.
It's such a drug, I just get dumber and dumber.
I can't talk, I can't talk.
La da da da da da da.

I don't wanna let go.
People they get so old.
I hate when people say, "Those were the days."
But what do I know?

Why you wanna go now?
I don't wanna go now.
Even though our friends are gone
And the music's off

Oh you keep sayin' nobody cares if I'm here
Except me, well baby that's enough.
