Lyrics

Beating time on cardboard boxes
In an attic cold as ice
We were Freddie & The Dreamers
With stars before our eyes
But as we loaded up the Dansette
With a stack of 45's
How could we have known that these were
The best years of our lives
It's so long ago
It seem like an age

Whatever happened to the dream
We didn't wake up suddenly
Reality creeps up from behind
Leaving you running out of time

Bought a ticket at the station
Waved my brother John goodbye
Got the ferry down to Hamburg
Went looking for a life
I began my education
Learned my lessons on the road
Started living for the moment
And following the code

They can't take away
My memories

Whatever happened to the dream
We didn't wake up suddenly
Reality creeps up from behind
Leaving you running out of time

They can't take away
My memories

Whatever happened to the dream
We didn't wake up suddenly
Reality creeps up from behind
Leaving you running out of time
