These Days
Nico Lyrics


I've been out walking
I don't do too much talking these days
These days
These days I seem to think a lot
About the things that I forgot to do
And all the times I had
A chance to

I've stopped my rambling
I don't do too much gambling these days
These days
These days I seem to think about
How all these changes came about my ways
And I wonder if I'd see another
Highway

I had a lover
I don't think I'd risk another these days
These days
And if I seem to be afraid
To live the life that I have made in song
It's just that I've been losing
So long

La, la, la, la, la
La, la

I've stopped my dreaming
I won't do too much scheming these days
These days
These days I sit on cornerstones
And count the time in quarter tones to ten
Please don't confront me with my failures
I had not forgotten them

I've been out walking
I don't do too much talking
These days, these days
These days I seem to think a lot
About the things that I forgot to do
And all the times I had the chance to.
I've stopped my rambling
I don't do too much gambling
These days, these days
These days I seem to think about
How all the changes came about my ways
And I wonder if I'd see another highway
I had a lover
I don't think I'll risk another
These days, these days
And if I seem to be afraid
To live the life that I have made in song
It's just that I've been losing so long
I've stopped my dreaming
I won't do too much scheming
These days, these days
These days I sit on corner stones
And count the time in quarter tones to ten
Please don't confront me with my failures
I had not forgotten them



I'llEatThat

Hi Noah,
23 here - there is a lot of pain in the world, and you may realise that or you may not.
The important thing is to be you, unapologetically. Live YOUR life, because (as far as I know/believe/am aware), you only get one.
Ask out that stranger, compliment people, help old people with technology, pay for someone's food.
Spread positivity - there's already plenty of negativity here; so we're going to fight it head on with compassion, dignity, courage, bravery, strength and also - may not succeed. But that's okay.
As long as you can look back and say that you've LIVED and not just existed - then to me, the world is your oyster.
And remember to tell your parents that you love them, and try to remember your grandparents' smell and their stories... just some spare change I added on to the two cents... because trust me its important.
There's a song called "the sunscreen song" which I heard when I was about your age - and it has a lot of great advice.
And yes, you will forever remain in your head the exact age you feel whenever you realise that you exist. And there will be questions that you can't know the answer to. Just believe that you will, one day.

Kid, sorry this is long. But I'm only 11 years older than you - trust me: it gets very busy, so cherish what you can ❤

parole française :
je me suis promené
je ne parle pas trop Ces jours-ci,
ces jours-ci Ces jours-ci,
je semble beaucoup penser À propos des choses que j'ai oublié de faire
Et toutes les fois où j'en ai eu la chance.
J'ai arrêté mes divagations
ne jouez pas trop Ces jours-ci,
ces jours-ci Ces jours-ci,
je semble penser à Comment tous les changements sont survenus à propos de mes manières
Et je me demande si je verrais une autre autoroute C'est un amoureux Je ne pense pas qu'il en risque un autre Ces jours-ci,
ces jours-ci
Et si j'ai l'air d'avoir peur Pour vivre la vie que j'ai faite en chanson
C'est juste que j'ai perdu
si longtemps J'ai arrêté de rêver je ne ferai pas trop d'intrigues Ces jours-ci,
ces jours-ci Ces jours-ci,
je suis assis sur des pierres angulaires
Et compter le temps en quarts de ton jusqu'à dix S'il te plaît,
ne me confronte pas à mes échecs Je ne les ai pas oubliés

"Please don't confront me with my failures, I had not forgotten them." --One of the best lines ever...from a 16-year old kid!

Paul Green

@ThePostApocalypticTrio don't care

Michele Canham Free

Yes

Paul Green

@John Smith ironic how dull you are

ThePostApocalypticTrio

He also used to bombard Nico with obscene phone calls all night.. so there’s that

@Tessie Mae i mean considering how a lot of teenagers get treated when they fail, the line seems fairly apt

It's hard to believe this song came out 55 years ago. Indie music now sounds so similar to this

Paul Green

Oh no nico doesn't believe what my tiny brain believes, so unfortunate.

Paul Green

@T. Castro imagine thinking I care if she is.

Catherine Punton Wilson

I like were its said in comments today indie has the roots from Jackson Browne era that wrote what Nico did the cover of- Jackson’s song- i prefer the original by Browne tho “ commenting Roots back to earlier indie of today- Roots” good…
