“These are the days of the endless summer
these are the days, the time is now
there is no past, there’s only future
there’s only here, there’s only now

Oh your smiling face, your gracious presence
the fires of spring are kindling bright
oh the radiant heart and the song of glory
crying freedom in the night

These are the days by the sparkling river
his timely grace and our treasured find
this is the love of the one magician
turned the water into wine

These are days of the endless dancing and the
long walks on the summer night
these are the days of the true romancing
when I’m holding you oh, so tight

These are the days by the sparkling river
his timely grace and our treasured find
this is the love of the one great magician
turned water into wine

These are the days now that we must savour
and we must enjoy as we can
these are the days that will last forever
you’ve got to hold them in your heart”.

Citazioni.

These Are the Days is a song written by Northern Irish singer-songwriter Van Morrison and released on his 1989 album Avalon Sunset. It was released as the B-side of the single with “Orangefield” as the A-side. The opening verse of the song is a recurring factor in Morrison’s music and lyrics, the belief that the predominant sense of enjoyment and appreciation of life is to be found in the present moment:

These are the days of the endless summer
These are the days, the time is now
There is no past, there’s only future
There’s only here, there’s only now

Biographer John Collis writes that this final song pulls together all the concerns of the album: “In one moment (‘there is no past…there’s only now’) Morrison combines earthly love with that inspired by a sun-warmed landscape, the yearning for simplicity with the love of ‘the (one) Magician who turned water into wine”.
These Are the Days” replaces “Caravan” as an iTunes bonus track, on Morrison’s 2007 compilation album Van Morrison at the Movies – Soundtrack Hits. “These Are the Days” was featured in the 1995 movie, Nine Months starring Hugh Grant and Julianne Moore“.
