These Days - Nico

This is one of my favorite favorite songs that a friend introduced me to. It's by an artist called Nico. She used to be part of The Velvet Revolver and was a model and an actress. She passed away in 1988. The song is called "These Days."
I've been out walking
I don't do too much talking
These days
These days I seem to think a lot
About the things that I forgot to do
And all the times I've had A chance to
I've stopped my rambling
I don't do too much gambling these days
These days
These days I seem to think a lot
How all the changes came about my way
And I wonder if I'd see another
Highway
I had a lover
I don't think I'd 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 don't do too much scheming these days
These days
These days I sit at corner stones
And count the time the quarter turns to ten
Please don't confront me with my failures
I had not forgotten them
