"These Days" as written by Danny Wells, Steve Robson and Jeffrey Steele....
Hey baby, is that you?
Wow, your hair got so long
Yeah, yeah, I love it, I really do
Norma Jean, ain't that song
We'd sing in the car
Driving downtown, top down
Making the rounds
Checking out the bands
On Doheeney Avenue
Yeah, life throws you curves
But you learned to swerve
Me, I swung and I missed
And the next thing ya know
I'm reminiscing
Dreaming old dreams
Wishing old wishes
Like you would be back again

I wake up in tear drops
That fall down like rain
I put on that old song
We danced to and then
I head off to my job
Guess not much has changed
Punch the clock
Head for home
Check the phone, just in case
Go to bed
Dream of you
That's what I'm doing these days

Yeah, that's what I'm doing

Someone told me after college
You ran off to Vegas
You married a rodeo cowboy
Wow, that ain't the girl I knew
Me, I've been a few places
Mostly here and there, once or twice
Still sortin' out life, but I'm doing alright
Yeah, it's good to see you too
Well, hey girl, you're late
And those planes, they don't wait
But if you ever come back around
This sleepy old town
Promise me you'll stop in
To see an old friend
And until then

I wake up and tear drops
That fall down like rain
I put on that old song
We danced to and then
I head off to my job
Guess not much has changed
Punch the clock
Head for home
Check the phone, just in case
Go to bed
Dream of you
That's what I'm doing these days

I wake up in tear drops
That fall down like rain
I put on that old song
We danced to and then
I head off to my job
Guess not much has changed
Punch the clock
Head for home
Check the phone, just in case
Go to bed
Dream of you
That's what I'm doing these days

I wake up in tear drops
That fall down like rain
I put on that old song
We danced to and then

I wake up in tear drops
That fall down like rain
I put on that old song
We danced to and then

I wake up in tear drops
That fall down like rain
I put on that old song
We danced to and then

    General CommentI wasn't a big fan of Rascal Flatts until I heard this unbelievable song. It has so much meaning, and it made me feel so sad when I first heard it because my boyfriend and I had just broken up. Very beautiful song.

    "Go to bed, dream of you, that's what I'm doin' these days"

    That has to be the best line in the song.

    General CommentThis song is so awesome! I totally adore Rascal Flatts, and I think that this song is symbolizing something that we all have been through. We all go through a period of wondering what ever happened to somebody we once dated or whatever. Kudos to Rascal Flatts on good work done!
