lyrics

Centre stage, you looked down into my eyes and smiled
I came of age; you took advantage of a simple child
Who is the impostor in this photograph
Summer in his face, and winter in your laugh

A covenant in the gallery and in the stalls
We understand all the secrets of the concert halls
We have heard the voices that the world adores
Cracking in the car-parks and the corridors

And in every way that mattered, you were mine, from twelve ’til seventeen
Long ago and oh so far away
I began each day with praise to you, on vinyl, on paper, and on screen
Neon letters burned and left you grey

In our minds, when we catalogue our enemies
We learn our lines and imagine our obituaries
Relishing the sorrow that would test our friends
We forget success can be the best revenge

And in every way that mattered, you were mine, from twelve ’til seventeen
Long ago and oh so far away
When you start to see me everywhere, on air, and on paper, and on screen
You’ll remember what you did today
