Set the scene and close the door-
Lights go down, and we don't make a sound.
And yeah we want so much more,
But nights like this are perfect for now.
Never gonna make it stop-
You can't make it stop.
Never gonna make it stop-
You can't make it stop.

This is the town I used to know-
This is the school we used to own.
This is the wind that used to blow-
This is the world I used to know.

Lying underneath the bed-
Your ceiling never felt so far away.
And tomorrow when we say goodbye,
We'll promise that we'll always stay the same.
But we're never gonna make it stop-
You can't make it stop.
Never gonna make it stop-
You can't make it stop.

This is the town I used to know-
This is the school we used to own.
This is the wind that used to blow-
This is the world I used to know-
This is the world I used to know.
This is the world I used to know.

We wished for lots of things-
When we were seventeen.
We're waiting for it now-
Waiting for it now, oh.
I've got a million dreams-
There is a life I see.
I'm waiting for it now-
Waiting for it now, oh.

We wished for lots of things-
When we were seventeen.
We're waiting for it now-
Waiting for it now, oh.

This is the school we used to own-
This is the school we used to own.
This is the school we used to-
This is the school we used to-
This is the school we used to own.

This is the world I used to know-
This is the world I used to know.
This is the world I used to know.
This is the world we all outgrew.
