The bridges of 1987 are lifting all around Stronger than those of newer vintage, thick and rich in sound They only happen once but they snare you in their traps The bridges of 1987 will never, ever collapse Do you remember what we did back then? I have doubt, I blocked it out Was that the greatest time of life back then? I think not, those days can rot But when I have the strangest of emotions That I can't resist rhyming with "oceans" It's because I hear a song blaring from a speaker above And I know what year it's from The bridges of 1987 are lifting all around Stick like honey to synaptic towers, hooks so tightly bound The great ones don't repeat, they need no exit map The bridges of 1987 will never, ever collapse Do we need to dwell in history? Rewrite it, no - let it go Recollections reek of fakery My tight throat can't find the notes That can properly spell out my real feelings You'll find more poise in a group of pre-teens They're the ones who hear new songs The ones to which we don't respond But you know one day will wind them up This is why we are doomed to repeat the past The bridges of 1987...
