We can remember
Swimming in December,
Heading for the city lights
In nine-seven-five (1975)

We share in each other
Nearer than father
The scent of a lemon
Drips from your eyes

We are the people that rule the world
A force running in every boy and girl
All rejoicing in the world
Take me now... we can try

We lived an adventure
Love in the summer
Followed the sun till night
Reminiscing other times of life

For each every other
The feeling was stronger
The shock hit eleven
Got lost in your eyes

I can't do well when I think you're gonna leave me, but I know I try
Are you gonna leave me now?
Can't you be believing now?

I can't do well when I think you're gonna leave me, but I know I try
Are you gonna leave me now?
Can't you be believing now?

Can you remember and humanize?
It was still where we'd energized,
Lie in the sand and visualize
Like it's... seventy-five (75) again

We are the people that rule the world
A force running in every boy and girl
All rejoicing in the world
Take me now... we can try

I can't do well when I think you're gonna leave me, but I know I try
Are you gonna leave me now?
Can't you be believing now?

I can't do well when I think you're gonna leave me, but I know I try
Are you gonna leave me now?
Can't you be believing now?

I know everything about you
You know everything about me
You know everything about us

I know everything about you
You know everything about me
You know everything about us

I can't do well when I think you're gonna leave me, but I know I try
Are you gonna leave me now?
Can't you be believing now?

I can't do well when I think you're gonna leave me, but I know I try
Are you gonna leave me now?
[fade out]
Can't you be believing now?

I can't do well when I think you're gonna leave me, but I know I try
Are you gonna leave me now?
Can't you be believing now?

I can't do well when I think you're gonna leave me...
