Album: What Did You Expect From The Vaccines? (2011)
  • songfacts ®
  • Lyrics
  • Got that nagging feeing that time is passing you by and there's loads of fun stuff you've missed out on? We all fear the aging process and Vaccines' singer Justin Young is no different. He told the NME: "I'm petrified about getting old and I'm incredibly nostalgic. Sometimes I feel like I'm waiting for me life to begin and I always regret not making the most of things. Have any of us really had the kind of summer they experience in American high school films? This is a song about wanting to be young, making the most of it, doing silly things."
