Track Name: Bridges Of 1987
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...
