lyrics

Cold winter morning
In 1983
Dream of the future
The people we could be
Or maybe mum and dad
Let us watch tv

Sun slowly rising
World is standing still
Music and laughter
Keep the chill at bay
Future tribulations
Are a million miles away

Inviting friends for tea,
Singing songs from the home country
In the language we never learned
While the fire slowly burned

Rain pouring down
In 1984
Searching for shelter
Beside the fancy store
Waiting for the train
To the other side of town

Man with the stony face
Mutters something of disgrace
To the woman with the tray
Who wishes us a good day
While removing the marquee
That kept the rain away

And the words you said to me
Still ringing in my head
Were as clear as they could be
learnt by heart what you had said

Be careful what you say
Or which bridges you choose to burn
Some things aren't what they seem
Some chances might not return
