we are the people

A song by the new Australian duo, Empire of the Sun.

Quite a different sound yet one I quite like.

And their name is oddly appropriate for my stay here in the “empire of the sun”, Japan.

This song, like the last, is also about reminiscing.

lyrics

“We can remember swimming in December.
Heading for the city lights in 1975.
We share in each other nearer than farther.
The scent of a lemon drips from your eyes.

We are the people that rule the world.
A force running in every boy and girl.
All rejoicing in the world.
Take me now, we can try.

We lived an adventure, love in the Summer.
Followed the sun ’til night, reminiscing other times of life.
For each every other the feeling was stronger.
The shock hit eleven got lost in your eyes.

I can’t do well when I think you’re gonna leave me.
But I know I try.
Are you gonna leave me now?
Can’t you be believing now?

I can’t do well when I think you’re gonna leave me.
But I know I try.
Are you gonna leave me now?
Can’t you be believing now?

Can you remember and humanize?
It was still where we’d energized.
Lie in the sand and visualize like it’s ‘75 again.

We are the people that rule the world.
A force running in every boy and girl.
All rejoicing in the world.
Take me now, we can try.

I can’t do well when I think you’re gonna leave me.
But I know I try.
Are you gonna leave me now?
Can’t you be believing now?

I can’t do well when I think you’re gonna leave me.
But I know I try.
Are you gonna leave me now?
Can’t you be believing now?

I know everything about you.
You know everything about me.
We know everything about us.

I know everything about you.
You know everything about me.
We know everything about us.

I can’t do well when I think you’re gonna leave me.
But I know I try.
Are you gonna leave me now?
Can’t you be believing now?

I can’t do well when I think you’re gonna leave me.
But I know I try.
Are you gonna leave me now?
Can’t you be believing now?

We are the people: Empire of the Sun
