days

Here is my best explanation:

'time' is the definition.

(thesaurus)

'confusion by the sound of it' is the subsidiary indication.

'confusion' becomes 'daze' (daze is a kind of confusion).

'by the sound of it' shows a homophone (sound like).

'daze' is a homophone of 'days'.

'of' is the link.
