"'Days of Light'" is a song by Roger Daltrey from his eighth and final solo album Rocks in the Head The song was written by Daltrey and Gerard McMahon, and features lyrics about looking forward to the week-end. According to Daltrey, the song was inspired by his early career as a worker in a sheet-metal factory.

Rocks in the Head is Roger Daltrey's eighth solo album, recorded at The Hit Factory in New York City and released on the Atlantic Records label in 1992.[1] Production is credited to Gerald McMahon, who also performed as a musician.[2]

When performing the song live at Vancouver, Daltrey forgot the lyrics partway. He explained that it was only the second time he'd sung it in his life, so the other time must have been when he did it on Late Night with David Letterman, as documented on YouTube. At any rate, he didn't seem too flustered by the slip-up; it was, after all, the first show of his first solo tour since 1985. He just cheerfully started the song over again.[3]

This track and "Who's Gonna Walk on Water" were the only tracks from "Rocks in the Head" performed live.[4]

The song is considered to sound like Bruce Springsteen.[5]
