How I envy this man for his ability to write such beautiful songs when English is not even his native tongue.

Another wonderful song from George.

Cheers Hazel; I started writing in Greek also, recently. Indeed, this one has its origins in a Greek expression that came to mind, with all the troubles the country is having...

George, great song, pretty but gritty like most of your songs. Liked the idea of the soft electric guitar line a lot!

Aw, thanks Kitty!
Lonesome EJ, the "electric guitar" is in fact the same acoustic one, but with the trebles down to the minimum in the equaliser and bass frequencies up to the maximum; that gives it the "sweetness" you referred to.

Here are the lyrics, transcribed by me from George’s sound file (see above).


BETTER DAYS
George Papavgeris, Nov. 2012

Remember times when hearts were light,
And dreams were ready to take flight—
Our love and youth won every fight.
There were no better days.
We watch our children struggle now.
We want to help but don’t know how.
A lonely furrow they must plough
And strive for better days.

Better days will come.
Our lives again will see the sun.
A lonely furrow they must plough
And strive for better days.

Look at the way the world turns out:
So many dreams have turned to doubts
And in the trough the same old snouts,
But there must be better ways.
And still the people search for hope
In filthy lies and dirty dope.
They keep on sliding down the slope
Yet they long for better days.

But better days will come.
Our lives again will see the sun.
They keep on sliding down the slope
Yet they long for better days.

For life ahead we can’t rehearse.
We only see things in reverse,
But here for better or for worse
And we hope for better days.
Now hook your arm again with mine
And walk with me this crooked line.
At least we know that in our time
We have seen better days.

And better days will come.
Our lives again will see the sun.
At least we know that in our time
We have seen better days.
