"Dark Days" as written by and Jacob Aaron Smith....
Wipe the dust from my saddle
Like an old familiar friend
Life and time will pass you by
Don't worry about the shit that you can't mend

Wash the troubles from my mind
I know they'll never end
Future's looking brighter
We can't always ride to dead

Misfits, drunks and philistines
I've been them all before
But I know that I don't want them anymore

Feel the sun cast my shadow
Growing bigger and brand new
Things to kill the hard times
What's it really to matter to you?

Had one constant in my life:
Love of my woman
She's everything and in between
Hope she never goes away

Hey! Dark days behind me
Hope the good days don't blind me
Hey! Dark days behind me
Hope the good days don't blind me

Problems out of my mind, out of my head
You blew in and showed me love instead
Desperately drowned in a puddle on the floor
You made me a life worth living for

Misfits, drunks and philistines
I've been them all before
But I know that I don't need them anymore

Hey! Dark days behind me
Hope the good days don't blind me
Hey! Dark days behind me
Hope the good days don't blind me

    Song MeaningIt’s a song about a man reflecting back on his darker days and moving on from them nowadays. He knows he no longer needs the things from his dark days and that brighter ones are ahead so because of that he needs to move forward
    this part of song is clearly indicating it:
    "Misfits, drunks and Philistines
    I've been all before
    But I know that I don't
    Need them anymore
    Hey…
    Dark days behind me
    Hope the good days don't blind me"
    and in this part of the song you can clearly understand he is talking about hope for the future and he's saying don't worry about the past:
    "Wipe the dust from my saddle
    Like an old familiar friend
    Life and time will pass you by
    Don't worry ‘bout the shit
    That you can't mend
    Wash the troubles from my mind
    I know they'll never end
    Futures looking brighter
    We can always ride again"
