lyrics

Why do you cry
When you're trying to get what you want
Cuz I can't deny
What you want if it makes you feel alive

But it's taking all my time
And it's mixing up my mind
Unfortunately it will never be 1963 again

The limit's the sky
Cuz you're far too beautiful to deprive
And if you want it, you want it
Hey, that's fine

Why do you lie
When you could get away with more insidious crimes
Like mine
And still appear to the naked eye, divine

But you're wasting all your time
And it tears me up inside
Unfortunately it will never be 1963 again

Taking me for a ride
With a shameless sense of pride as your guide
And if you want it, you want it
Hey, that's fine

Blistering sunsets in Timbuktu
Snow-capped relations in Kathmandu
Patiently waiting for me and you
And all you'll ever love is all you'll ever do
It's all you'll ever do

The world's in your eyes
It's so easy to idealize
But if you want it, you want it
Hey, that's fine

But unfortunately it will never be 1963 again
