"These Days" is a single from Bon Jovi's 1995 album These Days. It was the fourth single released from the album, and showcases the darker tone that Jon Bon Jovi and Richie Sambora's lyrics sought to achieve with the album. The song which begins with a haunting piano progression, deals with homelessness, loss of innocence and the difficulty of keeping up a relationship in the modern age. It is about people out there trying to be understood, to live their dreams.

The single peaked at #7 in the UK,[1] #38 in Australia and #40 on the Euro hot 100 singles chart.[2]

The song is present on the DVD Live from London at the end of the concert, and during the 2007-2008 Lost Highway Tour Sambora often took lead vocals on the song and references the difficulties he had been through over the past year.
