lyrics

If we had met, when we were ten
I think we would have been best friends
If we had met when we were ten
I think we would have been best friends

I was singing splendid nonsense in the back seat of the car
I'm in the space ship, I am the captain
And all my crew have names like sycamore
We're drawing pictures, we're drawing spaceships
Were telling stories were making words up

If we had met when we were ten
I think we would have been best friends

We would have been best friends
We would have been best friends
But we've seen a lot of life since then
Now everything is closing in

Now we are grown ups
Now we are useless and used up


If we had met when we were seventeen,
I think we would have been best friends
If we had met when we were seventeen
I think we would have been best friends

I was painting, trees and faces
City landscapes, street lights and pavements
We went to the gigs, we knew all the words
I'm making mix tapes, you're making mix tapes
If we had met when we were seventeen
I think we would have been best friends

Sometimes you say you wish we were still young
That those were the days, those were the good ones
Everything stretched out before us
Everything we could want and more yes
Sometimes you say you wish we were still kids
With all of the day, all of that promise
Everything stretched out before us
Everything we could want and more yes

Now let's do a video, I'll do the tune, you do the cartoon
Tonight lets go to a gig, discover the best band in the world

And we can still believe the future is possible
And we can still believe the future is beautiful
And we can still believe is me and you... Me and you
And everything good

Be my best friend, be my best friend for the rest of my life
Be my best friend, be my best friend, for the rest of my life.
