From the album Shed This Skin

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
