"The Days " as written by and Tim Bergling....
Under the tree where the grass don't grow
We made a promise to never get old
You had a chance and you took it on me
And I made a promise that I couldn't keep

Heart ache, heart break
All over town
But something flipped like a switch when you came around
And I'm in pieces, pick me up, and put me together

These are the days we've been waiting for
Days like these you couldn't ask for more
Keep 'em coming
'Cause we're not done yet
These are the days we won't regret
These are the days we won't forget

These are the days we've been waiting for
Rattle the cage and slam that door
And the rhythm is calling us as we're not just yet
These are the days we won't regret
These are the days we won't forget

Out on the midnight
The wild ones howl
The last of the last boys have thrown in the towel
We used to believe we were stars aligned
You made a wish and I fell out of time

Time flew, cut through
All over town
You make me bleed when I look up
And you're not around
But I'm in pieces, pick me up, and put me together

These are the days we've been waiting for
Days like these you couldn't ask for more
Keep 'em coming
'Cause we're not done yet
These are the days we won't regret
These are the days we won't forget

These are the days we've been waiting for
Neither of us knows what's in store
You just roll your window down and place your bets
These are the days we won't regret
These are the days we'll never forget

And these are the days
And these are the days

    General CommentThis is the first in a planned series of singles previewing Avicii's new album, tentatively due early spring 2015.
    Avicii's new lyric video for the Robbie Williams-assisted "The Days" is a testament to the creative power of words. Though, maybe not how one might first think.

    In the clip, an artist spray-paints the lyrics of "The Days" against a white wall, more and more as the song goes on, filling the wall with black ink. Without much context, it at first seems like a pretty average method of showcasing the words of the guitar-driven, suped-up 1980s power ballad. But at the end, we see there's been a method in the painter's madness, revealing an impressive piece of work.

    My InterpretationThis song is about a person recovering onto something new.
    The person experienced heartbreaks, and heartaches, and made promises that were broken in their relationship... "And I made a promise that I couldn't keep, heartache, heart break..."

    As painful as it was, a new person eventually came into their lives mending their heart. "But something flipped like a switch when you came around
    And I'm in pieces, pick me up and put me together..."

    The day finally came when the person was able to recover, the day they've been waiting for- to move onto a new relationship. Although the person may not know what will take place in the future, they know that they will never forget these days nor regret the new chances that they'll take.
    "Neither of us knows what's in store, you just roll your window down and place your bets. These are the days we won't regret.These are the days we will never forget!"
