Thank you for the days,
Those endless days, those sacred days you gave me.
I'm thinking of the days,
I won't forget a single day, believe me.

I bless the light,
I bless the light that lights on you believe me.
And though you're gone,
You're with me every single day, believe me.

Days I'll remember all my life,
Days when you can't see wrong from right.
You took my life,
But then I knew that very soon you'd leave me,
But it's all right,
Now I'm not frightened of this world, believe me.

I wish today could be tomorrow,
The night is dark,
It just brings sorrow anyway.

Thank you for the days,
Those endless days, those sacred days you gave me.
I'm thinking of the days,
I won't forget a single day, believe me.

Days I'll remember all my life,
Days when you can't see wrong from right.
You took my life,
But then I knew that very soon you'd leave me,
But it's all right,
Now I'm not frightened of this world, believe me.
Days.

Thank you for the days,
Those endless days, those sacred days you gave me.
I'm thinking of the days,
I won't forget a single day, believe me.

I bless the light,
I bless the light that shines on you believe me.
And though you're gone,
You're with me every single day, believe me.
Days.

    General CommentGod, this song is so beautiful. I had a friend pass away and this is what I had read at the memorial for him. It's so moving, especially this passage:

    Thank you for the days,
    Those endless days, those sacred days you gave me.
    I'm thinking of the days,
    I won't forget a single day, believe me.

    The song also marked the end of Pete's days with the band. When they were recording, instead of "Days", he would write "DAZE" on his sheets.

    General Commentan anthem for when you've accepted that somebody is gone from your life for good, and you can look back on everything that transpired between you and that person and find peace in the good times you shared, regardless of how things ended.

    General CommentI watched Cutting It when everyone sang this at Allie's funeral. I used to think that it was simply about loving someone, but I think it's ultimately a sad song, and is a goodbye. Simply stunning.

    General CommentRay said in his autobiography that this was about a woman he was dating, but she ended up leaving him because he was a drunken mess and his wife was jealous. It's Ray's goodbye to her.

    To me it's always sounded like a funeral song though. It has made me cry in the past.
