On The Record -- Let Spring be your time to grow THESE ARE DAYS These are days you'll remem- ber/Never before and never since I promise/Will the whole world/Be warm as this/And as you feel it/You'll know it's true/That you are blessed and lucky/It's true that you/Are touched by some- thing/That will glow and bloom in you. These are days you'll remember/When May is rushing/Over you with desire/To be part of the miracles/You see in every hour/You'll know it's true/That you are blessed and lucky/It's true that you/Are touched by something/That will grow and bloom in you. These are days. These are the days/You might fill with laugh- ter/Until you break/These are the days/You might feel/A shaft of light make its way/Across your face/And when you do you'll know/How it was meant to be/See the signs and know their meaning/It's true, you'll know/How it was meant to be/Hear the signs and know/They're speaking to you, to you Written by Buck and Merchant Sung by 10,000 Maniacs By CHARLIE MARTIN CNS COLUMNIST i Copyright (c) 1992 by Elecktra Entertainment, A division of Warner Commu- nications Inc. for the United States and WEA International Inc. for outside the United States Think of a day everything went right.
