Singalong! Five Years' Time by Noah and the Whale

This song is so cute and sweet and fun and then all of a sudden kind of sad and real but still cute and okay. It's sort of optimistically pessimistic, like "hey, we're super happy now and in five years we might still be happy, but in five years we might not have spoken for four years and won't even know each other anymore. Either way, there will be love in our lives. In one hand, it makes me sad, because falling out of love is sad and also because it always makes me a bit sad when people are all cool and "whatever" about the possibility of falling out of love, but it also makes me happy to know that people can be okay with life.


FIVE YEARS' TIME
by Noah and the Whale

Oh well in five years time we could be walking round a zoo
With the sun shining down over me and you
And there'll be love in the bodies of the elephants too
And I'll put my hands over your eyes, but you'll peep through

And there'll be sun sun sun all over our bodies
And sun sun sun all down our necks
And sun sun sun all over our faces
And sun sun sun -so what the heck!

Cos I'll be laughing at all your silly little jokes
And we'll be laughing about how we used to smoke
All those stupid little cigarettes and drink stupid wine
Cos it's what we needed to have a good time

And it was fun fun fun when we were drinking
It was fun fun fun when we were drunk
And it was fun fun fun when we were laughing
It was fun fun fun, oh it was fun

Oh well I look at you and say
It's the happiest that I've ever been
And I'll say I no longer feel I have to be James Dean
And she'll say
"Yah well I feel all pretty happy too"
And I'm always pretty happy when I'm just kicking back with you

And it'll be love love love all through our bodies
And love love love all through our minds
And it be Love love love all over her face
And Love love love all over mine

Although maybe all these moments are just in my head
I'll be thinking ‘bout them as I'm lying in bed
And all that I believe, it might not even come true
But in my mind I'm havin' a pretty good time with you

In five years time I might not know you
In five years time we might not speak
In five years time we might not get along
In five years time you might just prove me wrong

Oh there'll be love love love
Wherever you go
There'll be love
