ELVIS COSTELLO Is The KINK…

CoverBlack

Elvis Costello
the man produced countless pearls
and always had a pair of brill ears
for other artists’ pearls too…

DaysKinks

like ‘Days’ by The Kinks (1968)
mixed sentiments for cold nights…

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
