    Lyrics

    I've these dreams I'm walking home
    Home when it used to be
    And everything is as it was
    Frozen in front of me

    PRE-CHORUS
    Here I stand, six feet small
    romanticizing years ago
    But it's a bittersweet feeling hearing
    "Wrapped Around Your Finger" on the radio

    CHORUS
    And these days I wish I was six again
    Oh make me a red cape, I wanna be Superman

    Oh if only my life was more like 1983
    All these things would be more like they
    Were at the start of me
    Had it made in 83

    Thinking about my brother Ben
    I miss him everyday
    He looks just like his brother John
    But on an eighteen month delay

    PRE-CHORUS
    Here I stand, six feet small
    And smiling cause I'm scared as hell
    Kinda like your life is like a sequel to a movie
    Where the actors' names have changed

    CHORUS
    Well, well these days I wish I was six again
    Oh make me a red cape, I wanna be Superman

    Oh if only my life was more like 1983
    All these things would be more like they
    Were at the start of me
    Had it made in 83

    If my life was more like 1983
    Plot a course to the source of the purest little part of me

    And most my memories have escaped me
    Or confused themselves with dreams
    If heaven's all they want it to be
    Send your prayers to me care of 1983

    You can paint that house a rainbow of colors
    Rip out the floorboards, replace the shutters
    But that's my plastic in the dirt

    Whatever happened to my
    Whatever happened to my
    Whatever happened to my lunchbox
    When came the day that it got thrown away?
    And don't you think I should have had
    Some say in that decision?

    If only my life ...
