Song Meaning
Verse 1
I came across a cache of old photos
And invitations to teenage parties
"Dress in white" one said, with quotations
From someone´s wife, a famous writer
In the nineteen-twenties
When you´re young you find inspiration
In anyone who´s ever gone
And opened up a closing door
She said: "We were never feeling bored
Verse 2
´Cause we were never being boring
We had too much time to find for ourselves
And we were never being boring
We dressed up and fought, then thought: "Make amends"
And we were never holding back or worried that
Time would come to an end
Verse 3
When I went I left from the station
With a haversack and some trepidation
Someone said: "If you´re not careful
You´ll have nothing left and nothing to care for
In the nineteen-seventies"
But I sat back and looking forward
My shoes were high and I had scored
I´d bolted through a closing door
I would never find myself feeling bored
Verse 4
´Cause we were never being boring
We had too much time to find for ourselves
And we were never being boring
We dressed up and fought, then thought: "Make amends"
And we were never holding back or worried that
Time would come to an end
We were always hoping that, looking back
You could always rely on a friend
Verse 5
Now I sit with different faces
In rented rooms and foreign places
All the people I was kissing
Some are here and some are missing
In the nineteen-nineties
I never dreamt that I would get to be
The creature that I always meant to be
But I thought in spite of dreams
You´d be sitting somewhere here with me
Verse 6
´Cause we were never being boring
We had too much time to find for ourselves
And we were never being boring
We dressed up and fought, then thought: "Make amends"
And we were never holding back or worried that
Time would come to an end
We were always hoping that, looking back
You could always rely on a friend
Verse 7
And we were never being boring
We were never being bored
´Cause we were never being boring
We were never being bored
