With a sense of something
we sit at home
we didn’t own something something (the world is outside)

do you remember how it used to be at seventeen
we’ve never been the same (we’ve forgotten our lives)

she said we could do anything, we can do anything
ooh
open your eyes the world is outside the door
ooh

don’t tell me a story if you don’t have one

the last Monday in January is apparently the worst day of the year
(maybe they’re right)
I don’t even know what day it is
I’m tired of this wish we were kids again
with time on our side

she said we could do anything, we can do anything
ooh
open your eyes the world is outside the door
ooh

you’re kidding yourself
coz everything else is old
ooh

open your eyes the world is outside your door
ooh
don’t tell me a story if you don’t have one

oooh
oooooh
ooh

ooh
open your eyes the world is outside the door
ooh

you’re kidding yourself
cause everything else is old
ooh

you’re taking your time
the world is outside your door
ooh
don’t tell me a story if you don’t have one

    General CommentThe lyrics are nearly right. This is what we came up with on the forum:

    Where’d our sense of adventure go?
    We sit at home
    With dinner on a tray
    The world is outside
    Do you remember how it used to be?
    At seventeen, we’ve never been the same
    Forgotten our lines

    She said
    We could do anything
    We can do anything

    Oh, open your eyes
    The world is outside your door
    Oh, don’t tell me a story if you don’t have one

    The last Monday in January is apparently
    The worst day of the year
    Maybe they’re right
    But I don’t even know what day it is
    I’m tired of this, wish we were kids again
    With time on our side

    She said
    We could do anything
    We can do anything

    Oh, open your eyes
    The world is outside your door
    Oh, you’re kidding yourself, ’cause everything else is old
    Oh, open your eyes
    The world is outside your door
    Oh, don’t tell me a story if you don’t have one

    Oh, oh, (etc)

    Oh, open your eyes
    The world is outside your door
    Oh, you’re kidding yourself, ’cause everything else is old
    Oh, you’re taking your time, the world is outside your door
    Oh, don’t tell me a story if you don’t have one

    This song really helps when you're stuck indoors, it basically tells you to go outside and do something, because it's so much more interesting than staying in!
