First single by The Wedding Present.
You were a survivor after all; you never even called! I didn't expect you to Now, oh there's such a lot you've done and you're only twenty-one Yes, you're only twenty-one Oh, oh there's just something; something I noticed That there's a whole world out there but it's shrinking fast You want to take it all and make it last forever Or maybe just a lifetime Now oh you've gone to fly the flag from some pinprick on the map Oh, won't you ever bring it back? Tonight, when you hold her in your arms and you prove that you're a man Oh, well, I hope she understands Oh, oh, there's just something, something I noticed That there's a whole world out there but it's shrinking fast You want to take it all and make it last forever Or maybe just a lifetime, maybe just a lifetime And some things just don't ever go away Some things, you know, are just here to stay And in a golden field there is a little girl left with a Union Jack And there's a price to pay, no matter what you say There is no going back today And if we're worlds apart, then I've still got a heart Can you imagine that? "Another wasted day", yes I can hear you say But I'm afraid, it means much more to me than that
