Lyrics

There was a time, long time ago
When I could do anything I wanted
Round your place
Everyone’s awake
And nobody is watching

But it’s so long ago
So long ago
So long ago I can not remember

We got tangled up and I got nervous
Our love was just a drop in the ocean
There are seven days in a week
And only one deadly sin
One day I was scared
And the next one you were clean

But it’s so long ago
So long ago
So long ago I can not remember

Here in the new age
Here in the age of incubation
Oh we are willing but we are unable
We play show poker love under the table – yeah

One pack of three gloves in my pocket
As I walk out into the night
Oh little baby I can hardly stand it
This fantasy is disappearing out of sight

And it’s so long ago
So long ago
So long ago I can not remember
