"Walking on the Milky Way" as written by and Keith Small Andrew Mc Cluskey....
When I was only seventeen
My head was full of brilliant dreams
My heart would call and I would gladly go
At twenty one the world was mine
And I was yours and you're divine
And nothing else would matter to us so
I don't believe in destiny
I don't believe in love
I don't believe that anything will ever be enough...

Man you should have seen us
On the way to Venus
Walking on the Milky Way
It was quite a day hey hey...
Walking on the big stuff
Acting like we're real tough
Baby we were on our way
So what do you say hey hey.

As time goes by, reality
Destroys your hope and dignity
There's nothing left but shadows on the wall
But just remember who you are
And where you've been you've come so far
And never ever let them see you fall
I don't believe in miracles
I don't believe in truth
I don't believe that anything can recreate your youth

Man you should have seen us
On the way to Venus
Walking on the Milky Way
It was quite a day hey hey...
Walking on the big stuff
Acting like we're real tough
Baby we were on our way
So what do you say hey, hey

Man you should have seen us
On the way to Venus
Walking on the Milky Way
It was quite a day hey, hey...
Walking on the big stuff
Acting like we're real tough
Baby we were on our way
So what do you say hey, hey

    My InterpretationThe whole song seems to be about falling in love. The first verse is about him meeting someone at seventeen and by twenty one they were happily in love with each other. Towards the end of the verse it seems that they were splitting up - as he says about not believing in destiny, love or anything being enough

    The chorus that mentions walking on the milky way and going to venus - venus is supposed to be the God of love so it's the imagination of this perfect marriage going all the way to Venus.

    Then the second verse is the person then looking back, even though at the beginning the marriage seemed perfect, over time reality has destroyed what you hoped the marriage would grow into, and there is nothing left but memories (shadows on the wall), and the person who they've now split up with seems to want to ruin them. But they're saying don't let them ruin you, don't let them see you fall, instead think about how much you've achieved, how far you've gone.

    Then the line about not believing in miracles, truth and anything recreating youth - he's saying basically that even though when he was young he thought it was a miracle that he met this amazing person and that the person would always be truthful to him, this wasn't the case, and that nothing will ever recreate that innocence of youth, of believing and trusting the person you marry.

    Then in the following verses again he's reminiscing over the time when they first met and they were on the way to the god of Love (Venus), and it was quite a day (the wedding day).
