In eighty five
Tuesday morning
Came alive
I didn't know you
Route sixty six is gone
And Reagan's here
It won't be long

Nintendo comes
Live Aid too
Back to the Future
Where were you
While I spent all my days
In Catholic school?

In eighty nine
The dream begins
First in line to California
Pete Rose is banned for good
The Simpsons come to Hollywood
Russia leaves Afghanistan
Flight one o three ends Pan Am
Bush is here
This is the year
That I feel most alone

No more
Countin' down the hours
No more
Wishin' you were here
I stopped believin'
Although Journey told me don't
Before I call it a day
Maybe this'll be my year
Maybe this'll be my year
Maybe this'll be my year
Maybe this'll be my year

In ninety two
A boy is born
The skies were blue
In Ohio
Boris Yeltsin chills
Freddie dies
But Queen is still
Barcelona has the games
Lady Di is single again
Clinton wins
And I still dream
That I'll find you someday

In ninety seven
A baby girl
Adds some heaven to the world
Tony Blair tips the scales
Elton sings for the Princess of Wales
Microsoft buys into Mac
My dad has a second heart attack
And Train leaves San Francisco
In a thousand-dollar van

No more
Countin' down the hours
No more
Wishin' you were here
I stopped believin'
Although Journey told me don't
Before I call it a day
Maybe this'll be my year
Maybe this'll be my year
Maybe this'll be my year
Maybe this'll be my year

Two thousand and one
The towers fell
The World is stunned
I wish I knew you
I was on a plane
The world would never be the same
The artificial heart is born
Ironic when New York's is torn out
Woah-oah-oah-oah

Two thousand and four
Began in May
On tour when I met you
Facebook joins the Internet
Oldsmobile joins the cassette
I met your family
It took a while until you kissed me
But when you did
I finally felt at home

I stopped believin'
Although Journey told me don't
Before I call it a day
Maybe this'll be my year
Maybe this'll be my year
Maybe this'll be my year
Maybe this'll be my year

Two thousand and twelve
And all I know
Is everybody comes and goes
Everybody sings and cries
Makes the grade and takes the prize
In somethin' nothin' I don't care
Because I always know that you'll be here
With me
