The Vaccines – Wetsuit

If at some point we all succumb
For goodness sake let us be young
Because time gets harder to outrun
And I’m nobody, I’m not done
With a cool cool breeze and dirty knees
I rest on childhood memories
We all got old at breakneck speed
Slow it down, go easy on me
Go easy on me

Put a wetsuit on, come on, come on
Grow your hair out long, come on, come on
Put a t-shirt on
Do me wrong, do me wrong, do me wrong

If it’s up and after you
What do you suppose that you would do?
You’re all whacked out from lack of sleep
You blame it on the friends you keep
You want to do things differently
And do them independently
We all got old at breakneck speed
Slow it down, go easy on me
Go easy on me

Put a wetsuit on, come on, come on
Grow your hair out long, come on, come on
Put a t-shirt on
Do me wrong, do me wrong, do me wrong

Does holy water make you pure?
Submerged your vision’s just obscured
You’re a lot like me
In up to our knees
In over your chest is way too deep

Todos crecimos a una velocidad vertiginosa… Disminuye la velocidad… 

Semanas de recapitulación:
“¿Recuerdas, en el cole, cuando hicimos…?”
“¿Y cuando quedamos aquella vez…?
“¿Cuánto tiempo hace que nos conocemos?”
“Cuando volvimos a quedar… O más bien, cuando te ‘re-conocí’…”

Las vueltas que da la vida. El mundo es un pañuelo. Nunca digas “Nunca jamás”.

El tiempo ha corrido demasiado.
Nosotros hemos crecido muy rápido.
La vida pasa tan deprisa que no nos da tiempo a vivirla.

Pero somos jóvenes.
Estamos vivos.
Y vamos a disfrutar de esto (y de todo) hasta el final.
