It's thirty years since '85
Robbie's dead but Pete's alive
Or so the weblogs say
But no-one's reading them
Today my past caught up with me
And you were standing over there
You asked me what's the time
You asked me what's the year and smiled the saddest smile I've ever seen

I heard the same, can it be true
The bad die old, the good pass through
Or so the people say
But look where they got us
The cars lie all around
The city's useless now
We took on the world and lost
But everyone's a loser now, but you
I never thought you'd end up here
With all that you were running from
But when the chips are down
I only wish I'd been around
As if you needed me at all

I couldn't stay, just had to go
I waited years for you to show
But that's all in the past
It happened oh so fast
The cars lie all around
The city's useless now
We took on the world and lost
But everyone's a loser now, but you

Thinking what I should have done
There are things you shouldn't touch
And so much you can't control
I didn't find myself back there
But I lost myself in you
And it felt so, so, so

It doesn't have to end this way
'Cause you can always start again
It's just a possible world

The cars lie all around
The city's useless now
We took on the world and lost
But everyone's a loser now, but you
You saw it coming, didn't you?
