Two weeks to take a song from conception to completion to competition!

Days Like These

This song was created for Game of Bands round 247 : "Summer Bangers"

Lyrics:

Slip on my new converse
Press play on my old walkman
Sun's heat upon my neck
And a slight breeze that feels perfect

Let my legs just carry me
Pound pavement to the beat
Of the rhythm section in my ear
As I head off down the street

Lazy traffic cruises by
Towards the haze caused by the heat
There's teens smoking outside Fast Stop
Kids playing hop scotch in the street
As the music builds to the chorus
The world seems to be in sync
This one moment feels enormous
And everything seems to just click

This is the soundtrack to the perfect evening
On days like these, on days like these
In the background plays out perfect scenes
On days like these, simple days like these

Rainbows form in front lawns
Through the hazy mist of sprinklers
There's a smile and a nod
To every passing stranger

No direction that am heading
l'll meander through the heat
And I'll rewind and start again
When the tape is complete

Scent of fresh cut grass
Barbecue down at Joe's Garage
There's a couple sharing ice cream
While they watch a water balloon barrage
As the music builds to the chorus
This one moment feels so smooth
And everything just seems so flawless
And I'm lost within the groove

This is the soundtrack to the perfect evening
On days like these, on days like these
In the background plays out perfect scenes
On days like these, simple days like these
[Exit]
