Whenever I get to feel this way Try to find new words to say I think about the bad old days We used to know Nights of winter turn me cold Fears of dying, getting old We ran the race, the race was won By running slowly Could be soon we'll cease to sound Slowly upstairs, faster down Then to revisit stony grounds We used to know Remembering mornings, shillings spent Made no sense to leave the bed The bad old days they came and went Giving way to fruitful years Saving up the birds in hand While in the bush the others land Take what we can before the man Says it's time to go Each to his own way I'll go mine Best of luck with what you find But for your own sake remember times We used to know Edit Lyrics.
We Used To Know song meanings. Add Your Thoughts 7 Comments. General Comment Well, it certainly seems to be about the struggles of a group of young musicians, barely able to pay the rent on flea-bitten apartments or flats to use the British termwho finally achieved success. The two men founded Jethro Tull and struggled for success before finally breaking through in with the release of the band's debut album, "This Was.
Abrahams quit just as the band was beginning to put together their second album, "Stand Up," which includes this song. After quitting Tull, Abrahams founded the blues-rock-with-jazz-overtones band Blodwyn Pig, which released two albums over before splitting up.
His replacement on guitar in Jethro Tull initially was Tony Iommi, fallwho appeared with the band when they lip-synched their performance for the Rolling Stones' Rock and Roll Circus in the late autumn. But Iommi was already in the process of forming Black Sabbath and quit after a few weeks to be replaced by Martin Barre, who became the permanent lead guitarist. No Replies Log in to reply.

While recording in Miami, Don Felder phoned home to California to have his maid send him a copy of the "We Used to Know" demo in order to reproduce the introduction and end solos, which may have ed for the words "copyright in dispute" in the liner notes of the Hotel California album. Neat bit of trivia, isn't it? Stefan on January 21, Link. There's a very funny YouTube interview of Ian Anderson where he addresses the question of the Eagles ripping off this song.
General Comment my fave tull song, martin barre's guitar work is outstanding on this General Comment Tull is a truly under appreciated band.
Love the soloing on this one. Warr on April 06, Link. Song Meaning I think it has to go along the lines of "If you don't remember the past, you're doomed to repeat it" type of thing. My favorite track from Stand Up.
I love the flute on it. General Comment On just rereading the lyrics, I thought it might be about the band's career arc and the music industry, with the general theme of being grateful for success, but not expecting it to last, how successful they had been so far, and how hard it was to start with. It used to make me think of Vikings, reminiscing of old raids, I think because of the penultimate verse. Flamencoprof on November 02, Link. My Interpretation I don't think there's much question that this is something of a biographical song about Tull itself, but in a larger sense I see it as a general, slightly wistful nostalgic observation - looking back on how things were when you were young and struggling, just barely getting by, looking desperately for your first break, hoping that things would get better someday -- but not really appreciating that in some ways those times had a happiness that later success would never recapture.
Thematically, I couple this song with The Chequered Flag and more recently as I am in my "golden years" with At Last, Finally as something of a life trilogy.
Yeah, I know I'm weird. Hoplophile on September 14, Link. Artists - J. Rate These Lyrics. We do not have any tags for We Used To Know lyrics. Why not add your own? Log in to add a tag.
