The original of this song is weird. It talks about how "you" will at some point remember "these days," which worked, because, yes, I remember a specific occasion when I saw the video for this song on MTV. But mainly what I remember about the occasion is the act of recording something that I was supposed to remember later: that is, the song, though fraught with personal associations and emotions for me, carries only personal associations and emotions which reference the song itself and the immediate environment in which I first experienced the song. Which may have been the whole intention in the first place, to make it memorable.

These will be days, which you will recall.
Never before, and never in this factual form,
I promise never to bequeath entire peace in this warm way.
And you feel in proportion to them;
you know they truly
are blessed and lucky.
You truly are that touched.
Something will grow, and it will bloom in you.
These will be days, which you'll recall.
When it's able to hurry above you: the desire
to be part of the miracles. You see it yourself
in each hour.
You know they truly are blessed and lucky,
that you are truly touched. Something will grow, and it will bloom in you.
These will be days.
These days will be days which could fill you with laughter. These days, as long as you don't break, you could feel the shaft of light make a road through your side.
And when you make yourself, you'll know how you intended to be:
see signs, know their meaning.
Truly, you'll know how you intended to be;
he speaks to you, you know those signs.
