Lyrics

One day they tell me we’ll all fly to the stars

We’ll spend our days on Venus and we’ll spend our nights on Mars

But I don’t see that happening to me

I don’t think that’s how it’s gonna be

 

I’ll never fly into space

I’ll never walk on the moon

I’ll never go where no one has gone before

‘Cause I was born a little too soon

Yes I was born a little too soon

 

Well my great-granddad was never on a jet

He never had a VCR or surfed the internet

And my children’s children will see

All these things that weren’t meant for me

 

I’ll never fly into space

I’ll never walk on the moon

I’ll never go where no one has gone before

‘Cause I was born a little too soon

Yes I was born a little too soon

 

All of this wishing

All of this wanting to see

All my curiosity

Is running away with me

Can’t escape this prison

Can’t escape this prison of time

Leaving history behind

To those I’ll never find

 

I’ll never fly into space

I’ll never walk on the moon

I’ll never go where no one has gone before

‘Cause I was born a little too soon

Yes I was born a little too soon
