Ron Sexsmith – These Days lyrics

Promises are made to be broken
Haven't you heard?
He said he'd never break your heart

Now haven't you learned?
You believed in the words
In all that they meant

Oh, but love is not some popular song
Filled with empty sentiment
That's what passes for love
That's what passes for love these days

It won't take a miracle, darlin'
Just keep it real
This world can make us cynical, darlin'

I know how it feels
You took it to heart
What they said on the screen

Oh, but love is not just playing a part
In some very scripted scene
That's what passes for love
That's what passes for love these days

No one can complete you or make you whole
But love will come to greet you half way
Though the streets are never paved with gold

Promises are made to be broken
Haven't you heard?
He said he'd never break your heart

Now haven't you learned?
You believed in the words
In all that they meant

Oh, but love is not some popular song
Filled with empty sentiment
That's what passes for love
That's what passes for love
That's what passes for love these days
