Faded Days
written by: Jak Locke

version 3:
from All Our Sunlight Scattered (December 16th 2002) (3:36)
Tell me a story of days bright and gold
Tell of a time when life wasn't so old
Tell of a day that was worth living for
Tell of the last time that I opened the door

The line that's been trod til it's blurred and erased
The clock that keeps time with no hands and no face
The pain that's renewed in its cyclical ways
Torn from the sanctum, from my faded, my faded days

Found in the backwater creeks of my mind
Lost in the ravaging passage of time
Borne on a cloud in the wide open sky
Choked in black schisms until it should die

Tell me a story of days bright and gold
Tell of a time when life wasn't so cold

version 2:
from The One-Eyed Jacks: Live (December 9th 2002) (3:39)
Tell me a story of days bright and gold
Tell of a time when life wasn't so old
Tell of a day that was worth living for
Tell of the last time that I opened the door, hey

The line that's been trod til it's blurred and erased
The clock that keeps time with no hands and no face
The pain that's renewed in its cyclical ways
Torn from the sanctum, from my faded, my faded days

Found in the backwater creeks of my mind
Lost in the ravaging passage of time
Borne on a cloud in the wide open sky
Choked in black schisms until it should die

Tell me a story of days bright and gold
Tell of a time when life wasn't so cold, cold

version 1:
from Rot (October 18th 1999) (1:53)
Tell of a story of days bright and gold
Tell of a time when life wasn't so old
Tell of a day that was worth living for
Tell of the last time that I opened the door

The line that's been trod til it's blurred and erased
The clock that keeps time with no hands and no face
The pain that's renewed in its cyclical ways
Torn from the sanctum, from my faded days

Found in the backwater creeks of my mind
Lost in the ravaging passage of time
Borne on a cloud in the wide open sky
Choked in black schisms until it would die

Tell me a story of days bright and gold
