Days come, days go by

For some reason I haven’t listened to Bob Mould’s Workbook in ages. I’ve no idea why, I’ve been listening to Sugar and Husker Du. I’d completely forgotten how great some of these songs are. Days come, days go by So it matters, so you say But it’s all coming back in a way And nothing […]

For some reason I haven’t listened to Bob Mould’s Workbook in ages. I’ve no idea why, I’ve been listening to Sugar and Husker Du.

I’d completely forgotten how great some of these songs are.

Days come, days go by
So it matters, so you say
But it’s all coming back in a way
And nothing will ever change
The words exchanged for revenge inside
You know these things take time

Now and then, these words
Make me laugh so powerful
Going through several lies
They’ve never been so true

I know that I’m used to time
You know what it is, don’t you?
Some words make us all cry
It’s so talented

If anybody could read my mind
And share with me these thoughts
Of all the enemies left behind
And friends that time forgot
Pretending nothing could ever faze you
Well, some things never change
Tell me why do these words ring home
How can you heartbreak a stranger?

Days come, days go by
So it matters, so you say
But it’s all coming back in a way
And everyone knows a way
And everybody runs away
From somebody who cries

         Heartbreak a Stranger, Bob Mould

  1. Ah, Workbook. How I adore it. I don’t know if it’s the same for you, but it always evokes this feeling, like I’m right back where I was the first time I ever listened to it. And “See a Little Light” has to be one of the best pragmatic love songs ever; especially because it’s about a long-term relationship, which you don’t get often in that genre.
