We used to never say never
We used to think we'll live for ever
Flying free beneath the sun
Days go running and hiding
Weeks go slipping and sliding
Years leave quicker everytime they come
Remember when we were young.

Look back to the best days
Collecting all yesterdays
As they built up one by one
Oh, how we beg and we borrow
Say we do it tomorrow
But tomorrow never seems to come.

We used to never say never
We used to think we'll live for ever
Flying free beneath the sun
Days go running and hiding
Weeks go slipping and sliding
Years leave quicker everytime they come
Remember when we were young.

And we were boys on the beach
Everything was in reach
I know it's hard to remember
But all had the years, they vanished
I always wanted to learn Spanish
And travel round South America.

We used to never say never
We used to think we'll live for ever
Flying free beneath the sun
Days go running and hiding
Weeks go slipping and sliding
Years leave quicker everytime they come
Remember when we were young.
