Pearl Jam - Future Days Lyrics




If I ever were to lose you
I'd surely lose myself
Everything I have found dear
I’m not found by myself

Try and sometimes you'll succeed
To make this man of me
All my stolen missing parts
I’ve no need for anymore

I believe
And I believe 'cause I can see
Our future days, days of you and me

Back when I was feeling broken
I focused on a prayer,
You came deep as any ocean
Did something out there hear?

All the complexities and games.
No one wins but somehow they're still played.
All the missing crooked hearts.
They may die but in us they live on.

I believe
And I believe 'cause I can see
Our future days, days of you and me

When hurricanes and cyclones raged,
When wind turned dirt to dust,
When floods—they came or tides they raised,
Ever closer became us

All the promises at sundown.
I've meant them like the rest.
All the demons used to come round.
I'm grateful now they've left

So persistent in my ways.
Hey, angel, I am here to stay.
No resistance, no alarms.
Please, this is just too good to be gone.

I believe
And I believe 'cause I can see
Our future days, days of you and me

You and me
Days of you and me

Pearl Jam Future Days Comments
  1. Anahy Flores

    My ex boyfriend dedicated this song to me. He said we would never be apart. A few months later he broke up with me and left me wondering about what did I do wrong. I guess Future Days will come... but just for me

    If I ever were to lose you
    I'd surely lose myself
    Everything I have found here
    I've not found by myself
    Try and sometimes you'll succeed
    To make this man of me
    All of my stolen missing parts
    I've no need for anymore

    I believe
    And I believe 'cause I can see
    Our future days
    Days of you and me

    Back when I was feeling broken
    I focused on a prayer
    You came deep as the ocean
    It's something something out there here
    All the complexities and games
    No one wins, but somehow, they still play
    All the missing crooked hearts
    They may die, but in us they live on

    I believe
    And I believe 'cause I can see
    Our future days
    Days of you and me

    When hurricanes and cyclones rage
    When wind turned dirt to dust
    When floods they came or tides they raised ever
    Closer became us

    All the promises at sundown
    I meant them like the rest
    All the demons used to come around
    I'm grateful now they've left

    So persistent in my ways,
    Here a angel, lying here to stay
    No resistance, no alarms, please this is just too good to be gone

    I believe
    And I believe 'cause I can see
    Our future days
    Days of you and me
    You and me
    It's you and me

  4. BCecilia Spedicato

    Almost the voice of Cat Stevens....

  5. Yami Youssef

    Because Love is the best thing we do.

    @Andiuh Bianor kkkkkk a sensação que eu tive ao ver o Joel no trailer, me transmitiu que ele vai se sacrificar por ela, vai ser tenso esse jogo

    Riddle ???

    Somos três 😁

    Wagner com V

    Já pensou o Joel morre no The last 2 pode ser de qualquer forma, mas dai no final a Ellie se senta em uma cama pega o violão q ele deu pra ela e quando ela começa a tocar a tela toda pretea e começam os créditos com a voz da Ellie de fundo

    Mano se isso acontece eu choro igual um bebezinho ksksk

  34. Andrew Claflin

    this song defines my current struggle but better yet it also defined the marriage of my two friends this past weekend. since the beginning of Pearl jam, they have always defined my generation....and clearly still do. Kudos to the Jam. Seriously, timeless.

Make your decisions with your mans happiness in mind. If you do this ladies and gents, the only thing to argue about will be where to go to dinner or maybe what movie your gonna see. Love just one.

  62. Gerard Mulrooney

    This was my wedding song. My wife and I had gone through so many songs but one day I was really listening to the lyrics and so much of what Eddie sings hit home...almost 2 years to the day.

    Darion Matteson

    Gerard Mulrooney mine too

  63. Hermes Krouskos

    I came for The Last of Us, I stayed for the band! Such a touching song.

    trey burke

    @Hermes Krouskos awesome man im glad u like pearl jam. what other pearl jam songs do you like?

    Hermes Krouskos

    Infallible, Sleeping by myself and Pendulum! Any other to recommend from another album? since I have listened to this album utleast a dozen times!

    Hunter Miller

    +Hermes Krouskos if you are still looking for more Pearl Jam I'd check out Riot Act or Yield or Ten. This is kinda the older sounding PJ. They kicked ass when they were younger

    Ken Kaneki

    I know I'm late. But were you there at the One Night Live?

    Hermes Krouskos

    Unfortunately not. I read that they used this song in an article somewhere on the internet and that's how I got here!

  64. Floyd Fullard

    This is a great song for mourning, makes me think of my dad.

  65. Lotte Yanson

    Who's here not because of How I Met Your Mother or The Last of Us but just because they like Pearl Jam

    d3sigN8t3dDruNk

    here because of Greys Anatomy....but i loved Eddie and Pearl Jam long b4....

    xd SheG

    That’s basically all three options

    Music Mann

    Fuckin LOVE Pearl jam

    Daniel Landry

    I'm here to try to perfect singing this to my future wife April 2020

    isaque simões

    Sim poucas pessoas assistiram

  66. ZioNix

    I wish they would make a sequel for The Last Of Us and at least include this song with Joel and Ellie in the epilogue :/

  67. RVPRSD

    These songs are just soo unreal. Soo beautiful and touching

  68. stangerling

    Just imagining Joel singing this song to Ellie makes me all teary-eyed.

  69. Sun Tzu

    I can't wait for Troy Baker to release a cover.

    trey burke

    +Sun Tzu who is troy baker?

    Sun Tzu

    @trey burke A voice actor, I was making a joke, Troy Baker does the voice for Joel from the video game "The Last Of Us", the cast and crew of the game got together to take part in some internet show, "One Night Live" where the actors reenacted cut scenes from the game, live, however there was a secret, un-filmed performance just witnessed by the live audience at the end of the show, where Troy Baker performed Future Days to his, in game, adopted daughter Ellie, acted by Ashley Johnson, both of them are singers in real life so it must have sounded good being sung by Troy. Annoyingly there is no footage recorded of the final "act" of the live performance so it will never be scene again, that's why I want Troy Baker to do his take on the song so I can imagine how the performance went.

    trey burke

    @Sun Tzu lol ok

  70. Michelle Carrasco

    "all the promises at sundown, I meant them like the rest"

  71. LeonarDJames

    Reproduccion 494,228, Like si vienes aqui a escuchar el tema de boda de Barney y robin, fue espectacular sin duda una de la smejores series jamas echas, escencial para la vida, me encanta How I met your mother

  72. Nicole Rodgers

    Happy one year anniversary to my incredible husband. It all started with a pearl Jam concert in Pittsburgh, PA October 2013, brought us to Hilton Head for our wedding where I walked down the aisle to this song. I love you, Wayne. Forever and always.

    Scott Roberson

    That's awesome!! My cousin was at that show (Pittsburgh 2013)Took his daughter to her first PJ concert.

    Bill Keaveney

    Nicole Rodgers beautiful story. Congratulations and i wish you and your husband eternal love

  74. Mária Magdaléna Michaličková

    Pearl jam is the best band ever  ♥

    Shean Fíonn

    That's actually a very fair and true statement. What other band sells out tours in an hour for 25 years straight? Not even the Beatles did that.

    Metallica maybe? Aerosmith? That's an interesting Google.. haha

    gary vigil

    EVER EVER EVER!!!!

    Jason Peters

    I knew this in 1993. The day I bought "Vs." I was 16.
    Crazy...I really hadn't even lived yet. My craziest most adventurous years were right in front me. I knew this was band that would be my "life's score."
    I was 16..
    "5 against 1"

  75. Shady Nathan

    Like because if you are here for How I Met Your Mother

    trey burke

    @nathaniel abriol how about like because you like pearl jam

    Chris E

    +nathaniel abriol OKAY IVE SEEN EVERY EPISODE LIKE 30 TIMES BUT RECENTLY LAST YEAR I GOT INTO PEARL JAM AND I WAS WATCHING THE FINALE AND I WAS LIKE OMG THAT SOUNDS LIKE EDDIE VEDDER AND I SHAZAMED IT AND WHAT DO YOU FUCKIN KNOW!

    Alex Swedock

    I'm here because I thought it was a cover of the Can song

  76. Star Rattler

    I am crying because of TLoU

    Dan 7

    I know...😭

    Sun Tzu

    +theEPICyus002 Where you there?

  77. James Beswick

    I'm here because of listening to them since the album Ten came out

    Matt Jardine

    Have you been greatly disappointed in everything they've put out since Binaural? The last 4 albums sound like Christian Rock or the soundtrack to a cheesy romantic comedy. They make me cringe. #hater

    Shean Fíonn

    @Matt Jardine ...people mature. As you get older, you start figuring out what the important stuff is, mate.

    I love the old stuff too. I love 99% of it all.

    Matt Jardine

    @Shean Fíonn Alas, they've matured into something that doesn't resonate with me. We've grown apart. After trying to make it work for years, it's time to face facts: I have to break up with Pearl Jam. I'm seeing someone else now. They have a radio for a head.

    Shean Fíonn

    @Matt Jardine haha, ok.

    Music Mann

    @Matt Jardine ...i could never break up with Pearl jam. Yes we have grown to have some differences but we pj is a wonderful fucking being regardless and i could never leave em. Love em

  78. Majin Wade

    how i met your mother, my brother( hes a pearl jam fan i think or is it my dad or uncle), the last of us, and a good friend of mine brought me here

  79. trey burke

    444,030

  80. Genesis Project

    how i meet you mother "The end of the aisle"

  81. kiwipunch2468

    This is the first song I've ever cried to :')

  82. locomuyloco4

    Who's here because of HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER? =]

    trey burke

    @locomuyloco4 you should be here because you are a pearl jam. if you like this checkout other pearl jam songs. like just breath, the end, inside job, betterman, indifference

    Majin Wade

    @locomuyloco4 good show and good song

    daniel morgan

    @locomuyloco4 strangley, you are here because of your mother? lol

    Majin Wade

    @daniel morgan Lol

  83. samsquanch1996

    if i ever get married, i want this to be my wedding song!

    Blake Wood

    I've told all of my friends I called dibs on this song

    gsvnj33128

    good choice for a wedding song.

    Hope Quarles

    Me too! It was actually used in How I Met Your Mother in a wedding!

    Rubinho0925

    +samsquanch1996 This song is used for a wedding in How I met your mother. Therefore I would advise against it

    Paweł Mazurek

    didn't watched HIMYM, but it was my wedding song..

  84. tombrero

    What I would give to see the non-broadcasted part of TLoU : One Night Live

  85. Anthony Hardman

    This song makes me really angry at Naughty Dog. I really wish I was there for The Last Of Us: One Night Live. 

  86. Dan Boston

    This song reminds me of my children, I have not seen them in over 4 years. We talk on the phone pretty regularly...but being there on a daily basis is so much better. I miss them dearly.

  87. FAST N BULBOUS

    mmm not quite as good as the 'Can' version of the same name

    trey burke

    what are u talking about

    FAST N BULBOUS

    @trey burke Can- Future days is one of the best pieces of music ever made

    trey burke

    @FAST N BULBOUS  yea future days is awesome but what are u talking about the can version

    FAST N BULBOUS

    @trey burke just thought it was funny that pearl jam have a song called that as well, it doesn't seem to be a cover by the sounds of things, interesting to know if it might be a shout out to them though maybe

  88. Janiece Swilling

    I was sure this was Cat Stevens when I heard it under the last scene of Grey's Anatomy s10e04. I looked up the music for that episode. Great song! Glad I found it here.

  89. Sydnei Gonçalves

    Nunca antes uma música tocou tão forte dentro de mim!
    Penso na mulher da minha vida e vejo nossos dias futuros claramente!
    Rosana Almada Gonçalves eu amo você!

  90. Enrico Ziotti

    chimbinha > all

  91. Al As 57

    Joel. What a wonderful song you chose, my friend..

  92. MrTHEALLMUSICLOVER

    This song touches the soul,brings me to tears every time.How I Met Your Mother brought me here and I thank Lord for that.Only I know what I would've have missed had I not seen that episode for it means so much to me now.This is the only song I've heard of Pearl Jam's and I guess is their best one.I would be very obliged if anyone can suggest me some other romantic/emotional songs by them.Thank You.

  93. RAVEONDAVE

    DAZED< YOU AND ME!!!

  94. jokeren75

    This reminds me of The Last of Us, The song matches Joels perspective perfectly after the end of the game.
