lyrics

So were we born in the wrong year
Or are we just romantics
To think turning the record over
Is more than just semantics

And when in time did music notes
Fall back behind the face
To those who think Duran Duran
Could never write that way

Oh oh we're bigger than before
But we're all a little lost trying to find the door
And we hold out to get a little more
For a two room double bed sleeping on the floor

You used to race the streetlights
To Sam the Record Man
In line to pick up Some Girls
And be the first of your friends

And even you knew the coffee stain
That happens now and then
Came from showing her your favourite song
That's hidden near the end

Oh oh we're bigger than before
But we're all a little lost trying to find the door
And we hold out to get a little more
For a two room double bed sleeping on the floor

How could we ever not have seen the light
When Joe Jackson called it out in '85
With music television owning the night
That the single would be all we need
Would it end the record industry
