lyrics

calling up all my old friends
trying so hard to make amends
people come and people go
but favourite songs you'll always know

i'll spin one now for you to hear
take a chair and lend your ear
the words being sung won't mean too much
but listen close and feel the rush

so grab my hand, and tell your heart, that this is who we are
and we'll forget who we once were

we're leaving all our pasts behind
trying to keep up with the times
you'll never change what's gone before
so walk away and close the door

the pictures that I cherish most
are photographs taken of ghosts
but letters going back fifteen years
reduce a man like me to tears

so grab my hand, and tell your heart, that this is who we are
we can't forget who we once were

calling up all my old friends
see them through a different lens
people change or stay the same
but don't forget their lives remain

the stars are streaking past outside
we're almost at the speed of light
uncharted worlds lie up ahead
you'll recognise them from your head.

so grab my hand, and tell your heart, that this is who we are
we won't forget who we once were
