lyrics

In the early 2000s you were living alone
In a very strange city, In a very strange country
Less interested then in what might have been
Than what might be in the early 2000s

In the early 2000s you were over punk
But still suspicious of quote-unquote indie stuff
So you settled on mod, it was good enough
Good enough for the early 2000s

And what comes next is never quite what you'd expect

In the early 2000s you were listening in
On Arabic, French and Italian
The Manu Chao song that drew everyone in
To the room in the early 2000s

In the early 2000s things kept blowing up
Much more so than you remembered, growing up
It made your problems seem small, not like problems at all
Getting real in the early 2000s

And what comes next is never quite what you'd expect

In the early 2000s something subtle had changed
Some small part of the world had been rearranged
You couldn't quite place it, but something seemed strange
Kind of strange in the early 2000s

In the early 2000s you were all alone
Everyone from your old life was moving on
But you'd been away just a little too long
To ever ever really fit in at home
