Rascal Flatts - These Days Lyrics




Hey baby, is that you
Wow, your hair got so long
Yeah, yeah I love it, I really do
“Norma Jean”, ain't that the song we'd sing
In the car driving downtown
Top down, making the rounds
Checking out the bands on Doheny Avenue

Yeah, life throws you curves
But you learned to swerve
Me, I swung and I missed
And the next thing you know, I'm reminiscing
Dreaming old dreams
Wishing old wishes
Like you would be back again

I wake up in teardrops that fall down like rain
I put on that old song we danced to and then
I head off to my job, guess not much has changed
Punch the clock, head for home, check the phone just in case
Go to bed, dream of you
That's what I'm doing these days
Yeah, that's what I'm doing

Someone told me after college
You ran off to Vegas
You married a rodeo cowboy
Wow, that ain't the girl I knew
Me, I've been a few places
Mostly here and there once or twice
Still sorting out life but I'm doing alright
Yeah, it's good to see you too

Well hey girl you're late
And those planes, they don't wait
But if you ever come back around
This sleepy old town
Promise me you'll stop in
To see an old friend
And until then

I wake up in teardrops that fall down like rain
I put on that old song we danced to and then
I head off to my job, guess not much has changed
Punch the clock, head for home, check the phone just in case
Go to bed, dream of you
That's what I'm doing these days...

These days...

I wake up in teardrops that fall down like rain
I put on that old song we danced to and then
I head off to my job, guess not much has changed
Punch the clock, head for home, check the phone just in case
Go to bed, dream of you
That's what I'm doing these...

I wake up in teardrops that fall down like rain
I put on that old song we danced to and then
I wake up in teardrops that fall down like rain
I put on that old song we danced to and then
I wake up in teardrops that fall down like rain
I put on that old song we danced to and then

  1. Kamesha Wright

    You never know how hard it is when a very important piece of your life just pass so suddenly...it tear you in 1000 pieces per second, many days I'm ok because time go quickly, but when time slow down life hits you...I miss you much if anything I wish for closer, I have achieve many things but miss the love, they don't make them like you anymore please look down on me with strength...i love you much... I'm trying:)

    People who appreciate a good song. Why do we listen to old artists like Hendrix? It depends on what a song, memory, or experience means to someone.

    My favorite Rascal Flatts song...ever! Mid-tempo ballad with bittersweet lyrics. As a side note, you can tell how much weight loss Gary had during the rain scene. 🙌

  37. Betta Artist

    I’ve been trying to get over you, after you decided to cheat on me and leave me. and every time I hear this song I can’t help but to cry

  42. Brandon Kepley

    I am trying to win the love of my life for almost 2 years left me and we were somewhat engaged. She left me stating that we should break up and see other people and her reason is that all we did was fighting which was mostly disagreements. I have been talking to her and she doesn't want to date me or be with me anymore and only being friends. I poured my heart out to her. It turns out it started when I was volunteering for an event where she just wanted me to spend time with her. I had no idea that was what she was wanting. we have talked about but she just still want to be friends. I want to have the love of my life back.  The that was I lucky and how I was happy and loved having her by my side. having her in my life and how much i truly loved her and love being with you. the way you made me feel better when I was feeling stressed and how she made me happy and made me smile when I was sad. the times she was by my side when I needed it.  Making sure I made it safe somewhere no matter where I was going. We were by each other's side through doctor visits, medical issues, hospital stays and times we had to go to the ER for each other. I want that all back. I miss her even though her and I still talk and just friends I want to get back to where the disagreements that we had was fixed by compromises and just talking it out without being an argument. I need your help

  43. skaterkid901

    I love how the comment section is a sounding board for those of us who've been through the heartbreak.

    I remember our times together. We actually got together thanks to Rascal Flatts. Singing Life Is A Highway (badly) whilst getting the train to pick up my first car. The way I changed the lyrics of Fast Cars And Freedom to talk about a dust trail following my old green Rover. Her baby blue eyes, head on my shoulder.
    It's been nearly 10 years. Her hair's got longer. Her eyes are as big and blue as the sky. She knows who I am, but doesn't know what I am. Not quite a forgotten ex, not so much an old friend.
    I've worked hard. I was once a teenager living in my parents house. The day I bought my Aston Martin I drove it past her house (not intentionally) and just thought... what if she's home? I went to bed, dreamt of her...
    ...That's what I'm doing these days.

  44. Emily Nicole.

    I know my ex feels like that with me but I've moved on and got married. hope he finds peace.

  45. Angellica Tiglao

    Beautiful❤

  46. Experienced Witness

    What is with the singers hair, dose he know he's not a teenager?

  47. Gretchen Star

    I miss you, Shane. I wish I were in the passenger seat singing with you today.

  48. Saige Forgette

  53. Mike Segovia

  54. Ashley Phillips

    I remember seating in your house just sitting and talking but that day you told meyyou were leaving I didn't want you to but I just smiled happily and told you I hope you have a wonderful time being a nurse. I wish you would come back to this town and tell me how much you loved me but its been 5 years but I'm still hopping.

  55. Rebecca Taylor

    If the producers weren't trying to orchestrate actual lives to make muses, they'd get more sales.. just sayin. Words out.

  56. amanda w.

    miss these days

  57. Lilly Boozer

    When I gets to the part that says “i put on hat old sons we danced to and then” it really gets me to have a tingly feeling when he sings “danced”

  58. Justin dman

    Cute lyrics and a movie like story. It is like one of those movies about a local guy in a small town setting. only in a song. If you are from a small town this may very well be your love story. Makes you feel like a small town cute guy.

  73. Raptorking18

    I know the comments are all about stories people have, here’s mine. I’m a young person and my relationship with my first girlfriend ended a few weeks ago. I’m still not over it, and I miss her and love her unconditionally. I was her first love, I was her many firsts and she was my many firsts. We’ve been together for 9 months but at the end of it, around the end of January into February, things were falling apart. Now I know I’ve made mistakes and I just wanna make up all the mistakes I’ve made to her, i just wanna tell her I can be a better man for her, the one she deserves the most. I just hope she doesn’t become a distant friend of mine. I feel like since she’s my first, she’s my only and I can’t love another person liked I loved her ever again.

  74. Donnie B

    I really thought I had it with her but she showed me different when she gave up on me when things got rough and when I really needed her the most
