These Days by Bon Jovi

I was walking around, just a face in the crowd
Trying to keep myself out of the rain
Saw a vagabond king wear a Styrofoam crown
Wondered if I might end up the same
There's a man out on the corner
Singing old songs about change
Everybody's got their cross to bare, (1)__________ days
She came looking for some shelter
With a suitcase (2)________ of dreams
To a (3)__________ room on the boulevard

She's seen all the disciples
And all the wanna be's
No one wants to be themselves these days

Trying to learn to fly

These days are fast

Even innocence has (8)____________ the midnight train
And there ain't nobody left but us these days

(Oh oh, oh, oh)
Though the times have changed
(Oh oh, oh, oh)
This world kept turning round
And round and round and round
These days

These days the stars seem out of reach
(Yeah)
But these days there ain't a (10)____________ on these streets
(Oh no, no, no)
These days are fast
Love don't lasts
There ain't no time to waste
There ain't nobody left to take the blame
(Oh no, no, no)
There ain't nobody left but us these days

There ain't nobody left but us these days
