The complete lyrics - all in good time
all in the effluxion of time

71 Betere tijden

(Jackson)
Van het Ian Gillan album One Eye To Morocco

De rusteloze MLJ(Michael Lee Jackson) speelde dit voor mij in de hele kleine uurtjes in Darzet(Dorset) tijdens één van zijn verbluffende tours op een planeet die een beetje zoals zijn beste shirt is - lang niet groot genoeg voor hem.

Het nadrukkelijk aanwezige gitaarthema is een stemmige schakering van donker indigo. De volwassen teksten verhalen over angst en hoop.

Better Days

(Jackson)

And we don't have much
But these four walls
And it's just enough
To keep us warm
On those cold winter nights

Let's think about better days
Not what we did
But what we'll do

And we work so hard
Each and every day
We're growing old
We get afraid
You can count on me

Let's think about better days
Not what we did
But what we'll do

And if I had
Only one more day
I'd spend it right here with you

Under a million stars
Our two hearts pound
And that's the only thing
That matters now

We know a few things
About life and death
Pretty soon
We'll learn the rest
I'm in no rush at all

Let's think about better days
Not what we did
But what we'll do

And if I had
Only one more day
I'd spend it right here with you
