Jonas and I - These Days

1. OPENING

Music by Roope Hakkarainen, Jonas Ursin, Juho Všliaho
Lyrics by Roope Hakkarainen


These days they work for me and they work for you
These days they work for me and they work for you
How itís turning so real in me
At sundown weíll watch and see

2. WHAT YOU DO

Music by Roope Hakkarainen
Lyrics by Roope Hakkarainen, Juho Všliaho


Time just go by
You only got one thing in your mind
You hear tick tack around
The plans you made are still undone

But all those times gone by
Oh they hunt you down

But thatís what you do

There must be something between those two
Look around now
There might be someone to help you too

But all those times gone by
Oh they hunt you now

But thatís what you do
When the curtains are falling you still keep turning on
When you meet Mr Charming oh how you falling love

But thatís what you do

3. ALARM CLOCK

Music by Roope Hakkarainen
Lyrics by Roope Hakkarainen


Youíre like alarm clock. You make me more tired
I pretend I donít even hear you. Iím sleeping
Fake dreams can let me be

Even though you make me more tired
I still want to be near you. Iím hoping
Silence can keep me free

I believe in something good
íCause something tells me I belong with you girl, let me be
I believe in something good
íCause something tells me I belong with you girl, set me free

Like alarm clock you make me more tired
But I still want to be near you. Iím thinking
This is really what I need

I believe in something good
íCause something tells me I belong with you girl, Let me be
I believe in something good
íCause something tells me I belong with you girl. Set me free

I believe in goodÖ
I believe in something goodÖ

I believe in something good
íCause something tells me I belong with you girl. Let me be
I believe in something good
íCause something tells me I belong with you girl. Set me free

4. GOING HOME

Music by Roope Hakkarainen
Lyrics by Roope Hakkarainen


Remembering the times when we would talk about our lives
Where should we be and where to go
But I got to say itís not the same, not the way we said
Itís not for one to frame

Iím growing old, Iím going home. Iím growing old, Iím going home
Itís a feeling in me and now I know. My heart will show where to go
Same old streets and too familiar scenes
Back and forth feelings
I got to go like birds at fall and go before I fall
before life turns into dream

Iím growing old, Iím going home. Iím growing old, Iím going home
Itís a feeling in me and now I know. My heart will show where to go

I see you in my days. Everything in place
But itís me and my ways, seeking all that space was all waste of days

Iím growing old, Iím going homeÖ
Itís a feeling in me and now I know, my heart will show where to go

5. CROSSROADS

Music by Roope Hakkarainen, Jonas Ursin
Lyrics by Roope Hakkarainen


At crossroads of change I choose my ways of life
In this still standing world soon I will make my turn
Iíll take the final glance, I got different plans
On my own I only got the chance
The whole world awaits, from somewhere I find my place

These lonely days they work for me
Iíll find a place to stay

Iíll live my life somewhere
Iíll find a place to stay
Iíll leave it all this way and stay

Crossroads and rails, mountains and lakes, Iíll be there
In a world filled of stories, someday Iíll tell you mine
Am I satisfied or am I happy now, thatís a big difference in mind
Maybe someday weíll find, some way to share our lives

These lonely days they work for me
Weíll find a place to stay

In this world weíre living, In this world we can hide
Is that the point of living. Is that the point of living life

Letís live our lives somewhere
Weíll find a place to stay
Weíll leave it all this way and stay
Letís live our lives somewhere
find a place to stay
Even in this way weíll stay

At crossroads of change I choose my ways of life
in this still standing world soon I will make my turn

6. LIZ

Music by Roope Hakkarainen
Lyrics by Roope Hakkarainen


Hey Liz why are you hanging with that kind of man
Heís not even type for a one night stand
But you still hang out with him

Iím not saying that itís bad for you
but you can get any man you want to
But you still hang out with him

íCause even iím not the guy sitting by your side
you deserve some beauty in your life
So honey make up your mind, realize heís not for you

Hey Liz one day in a lifetime will last forever in my mind
and you still hang out in me
When you stepped on that boat
God, you were so beautifull

I wasnít the guy sitting by you side
You deserved some beaty in your life
I hope you made up your mind, realized heís not for you

Liz I donít mind, just singing about those times you blew my mind
Those memories of sunlight, Cambodian beach life and all that fun

Now iím not the guy spending life by your side and I donít even mind
íCause honey you made up your mind, realized heís not for you, heís not for you

7. SAME OLD LANE

Music by Roope Hakkarainen, Jonas Ursin
Lyrics by Roope Hakkarainen, Juho Všliaho


Iíve been gone with the rain
Lucy got nothing more
Barefeet on the walk
Cold street got nothing for me

Sheís got nothing, sheís got nothing, sheís got nothing more
Sheís got nothing, give me something, Lucy I need something more

I came down like the rain
Janie couldnít save my day
I got wasted again
Didnít even know your name

Sheís got nothing, sheís got nothing, sheís got nothing more
Sheís got nothing, give me something, lady I need something more

Iíve been going down the same old lane
Only just to do it again
And I will be that fool again
Going around, and around, and aroundÖ

Sheís got nothing, sheís got nothing, sheís got nothing more
Sheís got nothing, give me something, Lucy I need something more

Iíve been going down the same old lane
Only just to do it again
and I will be that fool again
Going around, and around, and aroundÖ

8. AWAKE OR DREAMING

Music by Roope Hakkarainen, Jonas Ursin
Lyrics by Roope Hakkarainen, Juho Všliaho


Somewhere out there is a feeling of something more
I felt it in dreams so strong it still holds on
I mean love that Iíve never known
I mean love

I wonít be afraid everytime I feel you by my side
I wonít be afraid if only for a moment Iím alive
I wonít be afraid if I could keep the night Iíve never known
I wonít be afraid no more

Awake or still dreaming, believing in something more
The truth is in tear I fear I never hold on
In love that Iíve never known
In love

I wonít be afraid everytime I feel you by my side
I wonít be afraid if only for a moment Iím alive
I wonít be afraid if I could keep the night Iíve never known
I wonít be afraid no more

Thereís something Iíve been missing
You pointed me the way
I never felt as strongly as this
No matter what they say

I wonít be afraid everytime I feel you by my side
I wonít be afraid if only for a moment Iím alive
I wonít be afraid if I could keep the night Iíve never known
I wonít be afraid no more

9. THESE DAYS

Music by Roope Hakkarainen, Jonas Ursin
Lyrics by Roope Hakkarainen


These days they work for me and they work for you
These days they work for me and they work for you
How itís turning so real in me
At sundown weíll watch and see

I believe in love so hard when i see you out there tonight
I believe in you so hard my heart screams out loud

These days of dreamlike haze when brightness brakes
These days of dreamlike haze when brightness brakes
How itís turning surreal in me
At sunrise weíll watch and see

I believe in love so hard when i see you out there tonight
I believe in you so hard my heart screams out loud all

All for you
Sun dances too
For me and you
This whole day through

These days they work for me and they work for you
These days they work for me and they work for you

10. GOODBYE

Music by Roope Hakkarainen
Lyrics by Roope Hakkarainen


Time is up and itís time to say goodbye
I save my tears, let the good times roll
My mind all weíve been through now itís time to say goodbye
All left behind but always on my mind

The stars, the rain, the clouds remind me of the sun
The sun so warm that holds me on those ocean tides
So nice, so nice

Sun goes down and itís time to say goodbye
One last look in your eyes before youíre gone
All weíve been through now itís time to say goodbye
All left behind but always on my mind

The stars, the rain, the clouds remind me of the sun
The sun so warm that holds me on those ocean tides
So nice, so nice, so nice, so nice

All left behind but always on my mind

The stars, the rain, the clouds remind me of the sun
