original by Noah and the Whale

lyrics

Oh well in 5 years time, we could be walking round a zoo,
With the sun shining down over me and you,
And there'll be love in the bodies of the elephants too,
I'll put my hands over your eyes, but you'll peek through.

And there'll be sun, sun, sun- all over our bodies,
And sun, sun, sun- all down our necks,
And there'll be sun, sun, sun- all over our faces,
And sun, sun, sun- so what the heck.

'Cos I'll be laughing at all your silly little jokes,
And we'll be laughing about how we used to smoke,
All of those stupid little cigarettes and drink stupid wine,
'Cos it's what we needed to have a good time.

But it was fun, fun, fun- when we were drinking,
It was fun, fun, fun- when we were drunk,
And it was fun, fun, fun- when we were laughing,
It was fun, fun, fun- Oh it was fun.

Oh well, I'll look at you and say:
It's the happiest that I've ever been.
And I'll say: I no longer feel I have to be James Dean.
And she'll say: Yeah well, I feel all pretty happy too, and I'm always pretty happy, when I'm just kicking back with you.

And it'll be love, love, love- all through our bodies,
And love, love, love- all through our minds,
And it'll be love, love, love- all over her face,
And love, love, love- all over mine.

And though nearly all these moments are just in my head,
I'll be thinking about them, as I'm lying in bed,
And I know that really it might not even come true,
But in my mind, I'm having a pretty good time with you.

Oh, in 5 years time- I might not know you,
In 5 years time- we might not speak,
In 5 years time- we might not get along,
In 5 years time- you might just prove me wrong.

Oh there'll be love, love, love- wherever you go
