Simone
You're getting older
Your journey's been
Etched on your skin
Simone
Wish I had known that
What seemed so strong
Has been and gone
I would call you up every Saturday night
And we'd both stay out till the morning light
And we sang,
"Here we go again"
And though time goes by
I will always be
In a club with you
In 1973
Singing
"Here we go again"

Simone
Wish I was sober
So I could see clearly now
The rain has gone
Simone
I guess it's over
My memory plays our tune
The same old song
I would call you up every Saturday night
And we'd both stay out till the morning light
And we sang,
"Here we go again"
.
And though time goes by
I will always be
In a club with you
In 1973

In 1973 James Blunt was still a zygote (he was born Feb. 1978).

I, still, like the views said...

think that probably applies to more than one of us. . .

no, I got that the wrong way around - how many of us does that apply to?!

not many. . .

(but, ya see, nine-teen-sev-en-ty-three scans and rhymes really well

(I was nine)

I was five, entering kindergarten and trying to figure out what these American folks were about. I'm still trying to work that out, but now I also am trying to figure out what I'm about!

And what does nine-teen-seventy-three rhyme with?

"I will always be"

(funny that, huh)(and I thought you'd be older than I ma, but ti turns out you're kind of my little brother's age. . .)
