"These Days" as written by Estelle Levitt and Helen Miller....
I don't wanna waste time
I don't wanna stay 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 saying 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 should have stayed home
So many people I don't really know anymore
And I got nothing to say but I don't know
I just get so bored

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

I don't wanna let go
Even though my friends are gone and the music's off
You keep saying nobody cares if I'm here except me
Well baby that's enough
