about

Written and song by Joe, who said the Brits don't rock? Crank up the volume.

lyrics

Let’s put on our sneakers
and go out and play
kick the ball so hard
‘cos it’s saturday
you can dress as king
and I’ll be your queen
hold that thought
cos’ I haven’t thought of mine
hey baby we got plenty of time

Crank up the volume
to shake their bones
punch out the lights
‘cos there’s nobody home
let’s keep on running
for no reason at all
hold that thought
cos’ I haven’t thought of mine

But now nothing could be better
if I could write this letter
back to 1965
if you were born and I was still alive
in my dreams we’d build a ship
and make it built to last
but it’s too late
the moment passed

We’re seventeen and we’re here to stay
shout from the roof just to hide away
we need more red paint for this town
hold that thought
cos’ I haven’t thought of mine

Because nothing could be better
if sweet gum lasts forever
if a memory never cries
to dry away in the wink of an eye
in this old dusty place
the spring sings to my heart
I was too late
the moment passed
