Once, we were young, we had no plans, what simplicity of love
We used to get it, to get it all, we weren’t scared to fail or fall
Now, all I can do is to stand and watch those new boys in the game,
How they’re laughing and having fun, making rules under the sun

(Chorus)
I won’t win her pretty eyes tonight
It’s been so long since I played it right
I’ll get to Jupiter and halfway back
Before she’ll even notice I’m around

You used to call me the city queen, but now God’s playing his jokes on me,
I’m all alone, far from the scene; I got no room, no time for dreams

(Chorus)
I won’t win her pretty eyes tonight
It’s been so long since I played it right
I’ll get to Jupiter and halfway back
Before she’ll even notice I’m around

Once, we were young, we had no plans, what simplicity of love
We used to get it, to get it all, we had no time to fail and fall

(Chorus)
I won’t win at pretty eyes tonight
It’s been so long since I played it right
I’ll get to Jupiter and halfway back
Before she’ll even notice I’m around

    General Commentamazing song and beautiful video.....I think this song is about anyone looking back his life, watching the new generation (Now, all I can do is to stand and watch those new boys in the game).....about this line, sometimes I've thought it, because in my country the students are fighting for the right to education for everyone, and I think that in my student times I didn't do enough for this right.....I'm chilean

    About "I’ll get to Jupiter and halfway back, before she’ll even notice I’m around" I guess that could be about have fun sometimes and then come back to the normal life, family, job.......so, I did that.....I lived on New Zealand almost 1 and a half year

    thanks to this website, it's my first comment

    My InterpretationTo me, this song has a similar meaning to Glow. It's about growing up, looking back at your childhood and realizing you're not as happy as you once were. Things were simpler, brighter, you had no worries. "We had no plans... We weren't scared to fail or fall." Now you're grown up, things seem less beautiful, and you have too many distractions truly enjoy life and do what you really want. "I got no room, no time for dreams"

    General CommentI think this song is about getting old and thinking back to when you were younger and missing it. He is realizing all the fun he had and how he misses it now that he's old. It's a really sad song actually to think about. It makes me happy to be young and makes me want to savour every minute of it
