Lauren Christy 25 Back Then Lyrics

So long war
Rock and roll has not been heard before
In their long black cars
Technicolor movies for the stars
I wish I'd learn to dance the way my parents danced
It seems I always try to lead the man
Cause I can
I wish that I was 25 back then

London's high
Marianne is faithful to the sky
And a brand new beat
Floating from a room across the street
It wasn't only Armstrong up there on the moon
It seemed everybody's head was in the sky
Sometimes I
I wish that I was 25 back then

What I need is Jean Picard
To teach me how to fly
Get to meet whatever's out there
Watching from the sky
Bring back a new cigarette that
Doesn't make you die
Don't want a super highway
Just want a super high
Sometimes I
I wish that I was 25 back then
And the world moves on
