Nothing like the sun, The joshua tree
Faith and Bad and Actually...
Nothing like the sun, The joshua tree
Faith and Bad and...

Actually my life began in the year that Warhol died
I remember Black Monday and
The Herald of free enterprise
Meanwhile I, somehow I got somewhere
Like landing on the Red Square
And music was always in my mind
Always there and always right

I discovered life in 1987
So all my life, I'll remember '87
I started to explore though I'd been around before
Being born in 1974

I remember Reagan saying' let's tear down that wall'
Perestroyka and Glasnost ruled the headlines after all Meanwhile I, I was feeling quite strong
So I recorded my first song
And music was always in my mind
Always there and always right

I discovered life in 1987
So all my life, I'll remember '87
I started to explore though I'd been around before
Being born in 1974

Everybody has their own special year
It's deep in your heart
Cause it marks a new start in your life
And every now and then the music that you hear
Suddenly brings you back in time

I discovered life in 1987
So all my life, I'll remember '87
I started to explore though I'd been around before
Then I opened up and wanted more
Being born in 1974
