Thirty years ago
We thought the days passed slow
I know, I know
We didn't have a care
And now that seems quite unfair
We weren't unaware

Is time not the sharpest stake in the heart
It creeps on up and does us in
Is time not the sharpest stake in the heart
It's all lose and no win

Thirty years ago
We sat around and drank our joe
Sipped it slow
We laughed at all the fat old men
There was no future there was no then
Won't be like that again

Time will get you
Time will have its way
Time will track you down
Time will make you its prey

Thirty years ago
We were all aglow
I know, I know
