Days Of My Life

grey days sunny days
days when it rained all day 
blue days sad days
wasted half forgotten days

these are the days of my life
I’m building a collection here
stacking up a lifetime’s worth

snowy days read letter days
days when sorrow came to stay
endless days depression days
days when nights were longer than the days

the collection keeps on growing here
a lifetime’s worth of disappearing days

these are the days of my life
I would’ve lived them different 
but I never ever thought they’d ever end

flag days drag days
try’n’ to keep the sun at bay
dark days and dreadful days
sleeping all the day away

these are the days of my life
