lyrics

come Irene and dance with me
to the songs we used to sing
let's raise our glasses to the sea
and dream of things that we will be

in 12 years we'll hate each other
you'll call me "your father," I'll call me "your mother"
so let's raise our glasses to the sea
and drink one last time to the 20th century

all my friends are dead or dying
days of adventure all gone by them
it always was my favorite dream
that one day I would be buried at sea

or a postman on a bicycle
dancing with girls from Istanbul
but all the things that I used to dream
I read in a book on the 20th century

I met you at the Great Salt Lake
you were with Owens '88
I was working in a bar
and you were sleeping your car

we were married in '92
had a son then there were two
and both of them were born on the eve
of the final years of the 20th century

so here I stand my youth behind me
days of adventure all gone by me
when all I ever wanted to be
was an honest man of the 20th century

so won't you come with me tonight
beneath this fading scarlet light
standing wet, beside the sea
on the edge
of the 20th century

For a long time I lived at the top of a secret staircase, and each night I would go there to dream.
