Alan Parsons Project, The - Days Are Numbers (The Traveller) Lyrics




The traveller is always leaving town
He never has the time to turn around
And if the road he's taken isn't leading anywhere
He seems to be completely unaware

The traveller is always leaving home
The only kind of life he's ever known
When every moment seems to be
A race against the time
There's always one more mountain left to climb

Days are numbers
Watch the stars
We can only see so far
Someday, you'll know where you are
Remember
Days are numbers
Count the stars
We can only go so far
One day, you'll know where you are

The traveller awaits the morning tide
He doesn't know what's on the other side
But something deep inside of him
Keeps telling him to go
He hasn't found a reason to say no

The traveller is only passing through
He cannot understand your point of view
Abandoning reality, unsure of what he'll find
The traveller in me is close behind

Days are numbers
Watch the stars
We can only see so far
Someday, you'll know where you are
Remember
Days are numbers
Count the stars
We can only go so far
One day, you'll know where you are

Alan Parsons Project, The Days Are Numbers (The Traveller) Comments
  1. Maia Tipton

    I've been on the fence as to putting all of my Stuff into storage and taking off solo for the Camino in Spain (followed by Sweden and Scotland...and...and....?) I'm taking this as a sign from my good friend, Uni! (aka The Universe.)

  2. Rodolfito Argento

    Que hermosa canción por dios, el coro de voces la melodía es preciosa, pasa a ser un valioso documento para la música en general

  3. javymontevideo

    Holly mix! God bless your ears!

  4. Edith DuFoe

    I don't believe Alan Parsons Project has not been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame that's just blasphemous!!!!

  5. Aldo Difino

    ...la mia vita, io , un traveller... count the stars.

  6. Elena Penabade

    Alan Parson project fantastic

  7. Daniel Barnes

    My days in the Air Force in the mid 80's, constant movement. The traveler I was. This song is both moving an haunting. I was the Traveler.

    Su letra tiene un contenido de Filosofía Hermética.

  15. YYCkike

    I remember playing this song over and over after I broke up with the love of my life. Many years later I married a lovely woman, she's the new love of my life. Days are numbers and enjoy my new life

  16. Artesanatos Berilo

  20. john watson

    Have not heard any tracks from the album Vulture Culture. For a long long time. It is just a great as i remember

  21. putnam83

    Wasn't there an official video produced for this song?

    Antonio Fongaro

    I dont think so.... The only promotional video in circulation is "Lets talk about me" the starter track of the album

    putnam83

    @Antonio Fongaro Thank you. Is the same true for "You Don't Believe"?

    Antonio Fongaro

    @putnam83You are welcome!! i think so..... I don t know any other video made from and for this album

    Antonio Fongaro

    @putnam83 you can find maybe some amateur unofficial videos made by some aficionados... There are thousands of them made on songs of the APP😉

    putnam83

    @Antonio Fongaro Maybe? Good grief! Maybe I just found some groundwork for my doctorate.

  22. Fernando Solis

    I think the Stranger Things theme is somewhat inspired by this song.

  23. Carlos Fernando

    que linda nusicaaaaaaaaaa cris raibow que deus o tenha

  24. Александр Янчук

    Божественно...

  25. annette wise

  27. EDUARDO CARTES

    Esta canción es simplemente espectacular

    Indiana Collados

    EDUARDO CARTES coincido totalmente.

  28. mac23skidoo

    Yes the harmonies in this song are absolutely stunning! And the fact that this core progression is one of the oldest most worn out chord progressions of all times it's the same one that the doo-wop band used C A minor f g but Alan Parson put such a spin on it that it's just absolutely beautiful one of my favorite of all time.
    It's a masterpiece!

    putnam83

    Please elaborate :)

    SublimeHawk6

    @putnam83 what

    putnam83

  35. Carlos Hernandez

    i don think so someone when listen this kind of Music vilieve today Music is better

  36. beneathdatrees0

    Sounds as (or more) appropriate as Christopher Cross's "Arthur Theme (Best That You Can Do)".

  37. Jae Pae

    No matter how many times I listen to this song, I can not get enough! One day you'll know where you are? Yoko and John climbed a ladder in the middle of the room to read what it said on the ceiling, "You are Here!"

  38. Carlos Alberto Delgado Salcido

    We can only see so far...

  39. Joao Henrique Mendonça

    abandoning reality, unsure of what he ll find

  40. Chris M.R. Santos

    In my opinion, the best song about APP

  42. Joy26

    Chris R. and Eric W. has outstanding voices.
    .

  43. laura robertson

    this a short walk. Make your walk "today" count for "tomorrow'. Enjoy "Mother" Earth. Learn to share.

  44. rotabo001

    I don't know who's bright idea was to have Donald trump cry his propaganda, but if you think you're gonna get revenue off of it, you are sadly mistaken...advertisers take notice...you tube if you don't take this crap off when I'm just trying to listen to good music...just remember everything can be replaced.

  45. theester 03

    This song is beautiful

    great tune//loved it when it came out...thanks for sharing.....cruising top down along marine drive in west van heading to horseshoe bay with a cool breeze flowing in the evening....teh traveller is in all of us....where do u want to go?...cheers eh...ken

  48. Carlos Hernandez

    WTF how can it be possible this song was not # 1 on bilbord what tha hell

    Dave Beale

    From what I've noticed, it seems throughout his career that A. Parsons purposely avoided the spotlight. I believe MTV awarded "Eye in the Sky" as best video of the year. But only because it's MTV and they can do whatever they want, otherwise it wouldn't have surprised me if Parson's had turned down the nomination!

  49. Carolina G.S.

    Como eu AMO essa música <3

    Cláudio Carneiro

    Eu também! 😍

    Joao Henrique Mendonça

    remember...

  50. barry wakefield

    the best song among many bt alan parsons project..It also begs the question that I have been asking and searching for all my life..not only where I am...but WHY I am

  51. Jose Carlos Machado

    The 80st are the best x
    Songs

  52. Jan Erik Nicolaysen Swann

    This has to be one of my absolute best songs ever
    It reminds me of , yea me. What can I say. APP got lots of fantastic songs but, if u got to choose, well. This is my number one.

  53. Jan Erik Nicolaysen Swann

    best APP song ever.

  54. Jardel Neves

    música difícil de se achar no YouTube. Escutando em 2018

    Carolina G.S.

    Verdade. E esta aqui provavelmente foi liberada recentemente o acesso dela aqui pra nós, pq ñ faz muito que procurei por ela e o link oficial ainda ñ "existia" rs

  55. David Martinez Guillamon

    Preciosa canción

  56. JamesMFerris

    One day, you'll know where you are...

    i pray this is so.
    Thank you Alan, Eric (RIP), Chris, and all the others for the TIMELESS music! :''')

    moonlighting44

    this is what its all about...go to sleep....wake up......its a gift to be mortal...WWG1WGA ..

  57. Donald Saxton

    Just had six straight shots of Back Velvet and this song only is stronger in my mind.. Why do we do this torture to ourselves?? perhaps it's because we have to, but really do we?? I beat my ass daily doing this routine for 60 years, and what do I have to show for it?

  58. Zack Daniel

    Esta cancion es Simplemente Espectacular!!!

    ximresal

    despacito es una cancion mejor que esta antiguedad

    mannu vera

    @ximresal la música es subjetiva, por eso es importante que solo la disfrutemos, y no que estemos comparando cual es mejor ó cual es peor.
    Tu punto de vista es válido, y es genial que estés explorando música como esta, saludos.

    ENIAC Mars95

    @ximresal Cuando crezcas y madures te sentirás avergonzada de esas palabras, te lo dice alguien de 24 años que conoce y siente la música como si fuera un sexto sentido.

    Christian Cordoba

    @ximresal que tipa más pelotuda.. fría ,tonta y sorda.

  59. Fat Cat

    I ended a relationship with this song. No matter how much I warned of the division between us, and that persons continued apathy, I couldn’t put my feelings into words, so I made a point of playing this song. It said it all.

  60. Donald Saxton

    Update to my comments- Last month both my brother and I took a three week trip to Alaska. We both related our feelings about this song, and agreed it's good advice for everyone. He's doing Okay with retirement even though it was touch and go at age 70. For me, I finally let go of my past and am looking forward to my Girlfriend getting home from deployment to Kuwait in September. Her and I will make the trip to Alaska next year!!

  61. lobo81865

    My favorite A.P. song.

    mannu vera

    APP has a lot of great songs to choose just one.

  62. Martin Kroebel

    Alan Parsons is still a favorite band. Thank you for sharing.

    Marisol Panameño

    Alan Parson my favorite!!

  63. Jeff B.

    👍""2018"👍🎷🎶🎵🎼

  64. lasf zeppelin

    Uffff this is out of this world!!!!!

  65. Inanutshell nmore

    Brilliant, this is so true, days are numbers, count the stars....

  66. ALCAPPELLO

    I always loved this song.

  67. Daniel Burns

    this song only went to #71 on the pop charts in 1985!!!

    progtoeternity

    Hidden behind Michael Jackson, Madonna, Wham! And Kool & the Gang... oh well, see now which music has the best shine after all those years ! Time acts as a skimmer and harvests the good grain.

  68. Saxtondonald97020 Buddha

    I learned the lesson of this song too late. I was working 14+ hours a day trying against time to retire with my Wife. She died before I could do that. I grieve daily not being able to fulfill my dream. Even with a new girlfriend 35 years my junior, I'll still never achieve the dreams I had.

    Grahm Spence

    I hear ya buddy my wife passed from breast cancer at 47 we will never know how it could have been love Parsons since 76

    TonySnafu88

    35 years your junior... Just had to include that part. Pshhh, joker.

    1QWEST143

    Make new ones

    Anne Baskerville

    Yes you can. You just need to believe in yourself.

  69. Saxtondonald97020 Buddha

    This song turned my brother's life around after he heard it. He's three years older thn me and was burning his candle at a furious pace, even after I had retired. He's better off from taking the advice of this song to heart.

  70. Jeffrey Lafferty

    Brings back alot of great memories. Miss you Dean.

  71. Dan Godwin

    The best of all recordings that I have heard on YT. Thank You !!! I don't think that I have ever heard a bad song from APP

  72. MRMONOPOLYization

    As usual, the vocals from Chris Rainbow are stellar.

    Kevin Stearns

    he was awesome r.i.p.
