Times Like These by The Eden Project (2024)

It's been a long long time
We’ve come a long long way
No I can’t see the finish line
Scared half to death but that’s ok
It’s been a long long night
After a long long day
My body’s aching but I know somehow
My feet will find a way

So ill sing it loud
In the silence
And give the best of me
Till it’s alright
But not over
I will find fight
Like a soldier coming home
In the silence
But I have never felt so free
The futures so bright
This is our time
Ima live it how I dream

It's been a long long time
Since I’ve seen sunlight through the rain
Since I’ve felt love or truth, it’s strange
But I left bliss back where I came
And I won’t lie
It’s taken so long to feel ok
And now the world is screaming out for more
But I don’t feel the same

But well be alright
'Cause it’s all we know
And its only change
Sun sets on the old
But were nocturnal anyway
And this is how we know
It’ll be ok
These are the times we will hold
When our memories fade
‘Cause its all we know
And its only change
Sun sets on the old
But were nocturnal anyway
And this is how we know
It’ll be ok
These are the times we will hold

These are the times we will hold
In the silence
When I’ve given all of me
And it’s alright
That it’s over
And I’ve found fight
Like a soldier coming home
In the silence
But I have never felt so free
The futures so bright
This is our time
And I’ll live it how I dream

Because it’s all we know
And its only change
Sun sets on the old
But were nocturnal anyway
And this is how we know
It’ll be ok
These are the times we will hold
When our memories fade

Sometimes it takes times like these to know
You’re in the right place

The lyrics of The Eden Project's song "Times Like These" are a reflection on the journey and hardships of life. The opening lines, "It's been a long long time, we’ve come a long long way," set the tone for the song as the artist reflects on how far he has come in his journey. He acknowledges that he cannot see the finish line, but this does not stop him from continuing forward. He is scared but confident that his feet will find a way. The lyrics speak to the struggles that come with life, but also the resilience and persistence that is needed to move forward.

The chorus reinforces this message, "But we'll be alright, 'cause it's all we know, and it's only change, sun sets on the old, but we're nocturnal anyway, and this is how we know, it'll be okay." The artist acknowledges that change is a necessary part of life, and while it can be scary, it is something that we ultimately adapt to. He finds comfort in the fact that he and others around him have been able to keep going despite the difficulties they have faced.

The song closes with the lines, "Sometimes it takes times like these to know, you're in the right place." The artist reflects on how the struggles he has faced have allowed him to gain a better understanding of himself and the world around him. He recognizes that these times of hardship have helped him find his path in life and know that he is where he should be.

Overall, "Times Like These" is a message of perseverance and hope. The artist acknowledges the difficult times that we all face but emphasizes the importance of pushing through and finding a way forward.

It's been a long long time
We've come a long way and it feels like a long time since we started this journey.

We've come a long long way
We've made a lot of progress and achieved many things on this journey.

No I can't see the finish line
I'm not sure how much further we have to go before we reach our ultimate goal.

Scared half to death but that's okay
I'm feeling scared about what's to come, but I know it's okay to feel that way and keep going.

It's been a long long night
We've been working hard for a long time, without a break and it feels exhausting.

After a long long day
We've endured a lot of challenges and difficulties throughout the day.

My body's aching but I know somehow
I'm physically exhausted, but I still have the mental strength to push through and keep going.

My feet will find a way
Despite everything, I know I'll find the strength to keep moving forward one step at a time.

So I'll sing it loud in the silence
I find strength in singing loudly, even when there's no one around to hear it.

And give the best of me till it's alright
I'll keep giving my best until things work out and everything feels alright.

But not over I will find fight
Even though things may look bleak or be difficult, I won't give up and will keep fighting.

Like a soldier coming home in the silence
I'll come back stronger, just like a soldier returning home from war.

But I have never felt so free
Despite the challenges and difficulties, I've never felt more liberated and empowered.

The future's so bright this is our time
The future looks bright and full of possibilities, and it's our time, right now, to grab them.

I'ma live it how I dream
I'll live life on my terms and to the fullest, just like I always dreamed.

Since I've seen sunlight through the rain
It's been a long time since I've experienced happiness and joy amidst difficult times.

Since I've felt love or truth, it's strange
It's been a while since I've felt genuine love and authenticity in my life, which seems odd.

But I left bliss back where I came
I remember a time where I was happy and content, but I've lost that feeling somewhere along the way.

And I won't lie it's taken so long to feel okay
It's taken a very long time for things to feel okay again and for me to find some peace of mind.

And now the world is screaming out for more
The world expects a lot from us and we're pushed to do more every day.

But I don't feel the same
Despite what the world wants, I don't necessarily feel compelled to do more or work harder.

But we'll be alright 'cause it's all we know
Even though things may not be easy, we'll be okay because we've adapted to difficult situations before.

And it's only change sun sets on the old
Things are changing, but that's normal and a natural part of life.

But we're nocturnal anyway and this is how we know
Even though things may be different or difficult, we adapt and make the best of the situation.

These are the times we will hold when our memories fade
These tough times will be meaningful and special to us, even when we remember them in the future.

'Cause it's all we know and it's only change
We'll overcome the challenges and changes because it's a part of our everyday lives.

So I'll live it how I dream
I'll live my life on my own terms and make my dreams a reality.

Sometimes it takes times like these to know you're in the right place
It's only when we face challenges that we realize where we truly belong and what's most important to us.
