An Invisible Hand Brought Me To This Song

Penetrating lyrics.

Another great version of the song performed by Jackson Browne on Austin City Limits:

How do you write these lyrics at 16 years old?

I've been out walking I don't do too much talking These days, these days These days I seem to think a lot About the things that I forgot to do And all the times I had the chance to.

I've stopped my rambling I don't do too much gambling These days, these days These days I seem to think about How all the changes came about my ways And I wonder if I'd see another highway

I had a lover I don't think I'll risk another These days, these days And if I seem to be afraid To live the life that I have made in song It's just that I've been losing so long

I've stopped my dreaming I won't do too much scheming These days, these days These days I sit on corner stones And count the time in quarter tones to ten Please don't confront me with my failures I had not forgotten them
