Don't let old dreams get you down
because so much is so much better now
Walk on by as if the world needs us around
when I walk right, you see I walk right on

We never had to try
for the world we would've liked
We never had to run
I guess I was just born at the right time

We never had to fight
for the world we would've liked
The war's already won
I guess I was just born at the right time

Cause I'm young and made of the things that last
I'll let all that you're saying, let all that you're saying pass
and when I wake up showered in the morning light
I'll know that it's gonna be alright

We never had to try
for the world we would've liked
we never had to run
I guess I was just born at the right time

We never had to fight
for the world we would've liked
The war's already won
I guess I was just born at the right time

We never had to run, I was
born at the right time

    My OpinionFirst of all I LOVE this song. What a beautiful melody and voice and lyrics.

    For the meaning, its about the pains and pains of being born into a world where everything is given to us. And that's the beautiful thing about this song is that it shows two emotions. In one way it's great that life is easy and you won't die trying to make it better. However its sad because we live in a world where it is almost impossible to leave our mark; most people won't be remembered.

    Think about the line: "I guess I was just born at the right time"
