    When I was 10 I wanted to explore the World
    There were these older kids at school who'd gone all the way to
    Somerset
    Just to see Peter Gabriel's house, Peter Gabriel from Genesis
    They way they'd dressed,
    the way their hair fell over their coat collars
    It all happened because of music, I wanted to know why
    I couldn't go to Somerset on my own, so I used
    Top of the pops as my World Atlas

    In 1974, I bought my first single, from Woollies in Redhill
    I started to memorise the charts, to memorise the leagues
    Tuesday lunchtime at 12:45, Saturday afternoon at five o'clock
    I didn't go to church, I didn't need to
    Green and yellow harvests, pink pies,
    silver bells and the strange and
    Important sound of the synthesiser.

    Over the border, I'm growing older,
    heaven only knows what's on it's way
    Every single day, love is here to stay
    Over the border, I'm growing older,
    heaven only knows what's on it's way
    Every single day, love is here to stay

    Kevin drove us to parties in his Morris Minor
    And there were boys, and there was booze, and
    mock Tudor semis
    And first kisses, and terrible chat up lines
    But in the end, the conversation always turned to music

    I was in love, and I knew he loved me
    because he made me a tape
    I played it in my bedroom, I lived in my bedroom, all of us did
    Reading Smash Hits and Record Mirror,
    Paul Morley and the Nme,
    Dave Mcculloch and Sounds, Modern Eon and Modern English
    Mute, Why, Zoo, Factory
    Cutting them up, sucking them in,
    managing the story on our own

    Over the border, I'm growing older,
    heaven only knows what's on it's way
    Every single day, love is here to stay
    Over the border, I'm growing older,
    heaven only knows what's on it's way
    Every single day, love is here to stay

    I had my mocks a month later
    But I just wanted to listen to Dexys,
    New Order, anything on postcard
    A few weeks and I'd be free
    A few weeks and music wouldn't have to be so private,
    it would be there for
    Me
    It would be there for me, and when I was married, and when
    I had kids
    Would Marc Bolan still be so important

    Over the border,
    I'm growing older, heaven only knows what's on it's way
    Every single day, love is here to stay
    Over the border,
    I'm growing older, heaven only knows what's on it's way
    Every single day, love is here to stay
