"Days go By (acoustic)" as written by and Steve/horn Smith....
You
You
You
You
You

You
You
You
You
You
You is still a whisper on my lips
A feeling at my fingertips
That's pulling at my skin

You
You leave me when I'm at my worst
A feeling as if I've been cursed
Bitter cold within

Days go by and still I think of you
Days when I couldn't live my life without you
Days go by and still I think of you
Days when I couldn't live my life without you
Without you

Without you
You are still a whisper on my lips
A feeling at my fingertips
That's pulling at my skin

You leave me when I'm at my worst
A feeling as if I've been cursed
Bitter cold within

Days go by and still I think of you
Days when I couldn't live my life without you
Without you

Without you
Days go by and still I think of you
Days when I couldn't live my life without you
Days go by and still I think of you
Days when I couldn't live my life without you
Without you

Without you
Without you
Without you
Days go by
Days go by-why-why
Days go by-why-why
Days go by
Days go by-why-why
Days go by-why-why

    General CommentMan, I adore this version so much. Ever since I first heard it. May be short, but it's poignant. Powerful.

    The vocals are so reminiscent of Neil Finn (specifically, of early Crowded House). I wish I could find the "radio edit" that has the underlying percussion beat (NOT the one on the acoustical guitar versions, though, they're obviously beautiful.) The percussion is just a touch bit stronger, and it lends an overall different feel to the song. Sort of like the different versions of "Mad World" released by Gary Jules for the "Donnie Darko" OST. Sometimes you want a bit more of a beat, sometimes you don't. ;) Speaking of the percussion, it's also very Guster-like. Dirty Vegas definitely landed a hit with this track!

    Now, then. I agree with the sentiment that the narrator is longing for a loved one; be it that they're since over, or they've lost them in some tragic way. Despite the manner or method, he's reflective, thoughtful and pensive.

    Just love it. Mildly cinematic, too. You can just see him driving down the road of a sleepy town, maybe rising from the winter's frost, where he and his love spent the summer ... A song for memories.
