STILL LOOKING FOR THE GOOD OLE' DAYS (STEVE DAFOE 2007)
(COPYRIGHTED)
CHORUS 1:

Cm7 (Bottom Up) Fmaj7 (Bottom Up)
AND HERE I AM ........STILL LOOKING FOR THE GOOD OLE' DAYS
GOT TO WONDER IF GOOD THINGS WILL EVER AGAIN COME MY WAY....
AND WHEN I CLOSE MY EYES....YOUR'RE STILL THERE BY MY SIDE
NO WONDER WHY....I'M STILL FOR THOSE KINDA DAYS.....
OH, STILL LOOKING FOR SOME GOOD OLE' DAYS
YEAH, LOOKING FOR THE GOOD OLE' DAYS...........

CHORUS 2:

Cm7 (Bottom Up) Fmaj7 (Bottom Up)
AND HERE I AM ........STILL LOOKING FOR THE GOOD OLE' DAYS
I REMEMBER BACK THEN......WHEN SECRETS WERE EASY TO HIDE...
AND WHEN I CLOSE MY EYES....YOUR'RE STILL THERE BY MY SIDE
NO WONDER WHY....I'M STILL FOR THOSE KINDA DAYS.....
OH, STILL LOOKING FOR SOME GOOD OLE' DAYS
YEAH, LOOKING FOR THE GOOD OLE' DAYS...........

VERSE 1:

THE THICK FOG ROLLS THROUGH POINT PLEASANT PARK
THE BLEAK GREY COLOR PASTEL AGAINST THE DARKNESS
BUT YEARS AGO I REMEMBER MANY SUNNY MOMENTS
WHERE LOVE SWIRLED THROUGH THE SUMMER LEAVES
BUT THE FOG SWEEPS THOSE MEMORIES BACK OUT TO SEA
HIDES THE SECRETS..........AND BURIES THEM IN THE DARK
AND SO HERE I AM.....................TO: CHORUS 1

VERSE 2:

AS I BUTTON MY COAT FOR THE DREARINESS OF THE DAY
I FEEL THE LINES OF A LIFE THAT CREASE MY FACE
I'VE GOT MORE YESTERDAY'S IN ME THAN TOMMORROW'S
BUT I CAN STILL FEEL HOW YOU MADE MY HEART RACE
BUT LIKE MY FUTURE, THE MEMORY QUICKLY FADES
TO GO BACK AND STAY.......I'D BEG, STEAL OR BORROW
BUT SADLY HERE I AM......................TO: CHORUS 2
