Before Anyone Knew Our Name

Album: Scream Above The Sounds (2017)
  • I miss you, man
    Before anyone knew our name
    We had the fire, had desire
    But what went wrong then?
    It seemed so big in the eye of our storm
    We couldn't have been further away from unknown
    Who did we become?
    Amen, we were meant to be
    Was that really your destiny?
    Was that really your dream?
    I don't really feel anyone else came close to how we see

    We had the prize before our eyes
    But we already had it all anyway
    Driving 'round for hours on end
    With the music on loud
    Driving round in a scrapyard van
    With the music on loud
    I've laughed and cried, I've confessed, and I've lied
    We built this thing from a dead-end street
    And now I'm looking around for you to see
    I miss you, man

    Before anyone knew our name
    We had the fire
    Before anyone knew our name
    We had desire
    Before anyone knew our name
    I miss you, man

    The street's so quiet now
    Rundown and heavy
    It used to be alive
    Swimming pools of cries
    Yeah, we said our sorries
    Yeah, we made our make-ups
    But that don't make up for what's missing now
    We built this thing from a dead-end street
    You couldn't drive through, just take the bus or just meet
    The mountaintops, they don't seem so high
    The trees I climbed, they don't seem so high
    I take my kids to see the world where we played
    I miss you, man

    Before anyone knew our name
    We had the fire
    Before anyone knew our name
    We had desire
    Before anyone knew our name
    I miss you, man

    Before anyone knew our name
    We had the fire
    Before anyone knew our name
    We had desire
    Before anyone knew our name
    I miss you, man Writer/s: Kelly Jones
