When I was seventeen
My heart and head were full of brilliant dreams
Assembled in the light of a day
That seems so far away, away

And now
When I was seventeen
When I was seventeen
I thought we knew everything
We knew everything

No responsibility
Endless possibility
What on earth could possibly hurt me

Lubetkin, Corbusier, van der Rohe, Mendelssohn.
Modern, modern, brutalist architecture.
Future, future, the future is clean and modern.

Space and light and dreams
That's all people need, and a place to sleep
The music and the songs that you play
Sound so far away, away

And now
When I was seventeen
When I was seventeen
I thought we knew everything
We knew everything

When I was seventeen I thought we knew everything

Do do do do do do....
When I was seventeen
When I was seventeen

When I was seventeen
Do do do do do do...
When I was seventeen
When I was seventeen
