  • We can remember swimming in December,
    Heading for the city lights in 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 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
    Know everything about us

    I know everything about you
    You know everything about me
    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
    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 Writer/s: JONATHAN THOMAS SLOAN, LUKE JAMES STEELE, NICK LITTLEMORE
