Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark - Walking on the Milky Way
Tekst en muziek: Andy McCluskey, Nigel Ipinson en Keith Small
(1996)






When I was only seventeen
My head was full of brilliant dreams
My heart would call and I would gladly go
At twenty-one the world was mine
And I was yours and you’re divine
And nothing else would matter to us so



I don’t believe in destiny
I don’t believe in love
I don’t believe that anything
Will ever be enough, oh



Man you should have seen us
On the way to Venus
Walking on the Milky Way
It was quite a day
Hey hey
Hey heyeah
Hey hey
Walking on the big stuff
Acting like we’re real tough
Baby, we were on our way
So, what you say
Hey hey
Hey heyeah
Hey hey



As time goes by reality
Destroys your hope and dignity
There’s nothing left but shadows on the wall
But just remember who you are
And where you’ve been, you’ve come so far
And never ever let them see you fall



I don’t believe in miracles
I don’t believe in truth
I don’t believe that anything
Can recreate your youth, oh



Man you should have seen us
On the way to Venus
Walking on the Milky Way
It was quite a day
Hey hey
Hey heyeah
Hey hey
Walking on the big stuff
Acting like we’re real tough
Baby, we were on our way
So, what you say
Hey hey
Hey heyeah
Hey hey



Walking on the Milky Way
Hey, hey hey, hey hey hey
Hey hey hey, heyyeah, oh



Man you should have seen us
On the way to Venus
Walking on the Milky Way
It was quite a day
Hey hey
Hey yeah yeah
Hey hey
Walking on the big stuff
Acting like we’re real tough
Baby, we were on our way
So, what you say
Hey hey
Hey heyeah
Hey hey



Oh man, it’s you to seen us we will runaway to Venus
We were walking on the Milky Way
Hey hey hey, hey hey hey, heyeah
Man, it’s you to seen us we will runaway to Venus
Hey hey hey, hey heyeah
Man, it’s you to seen us we will runaway to Venus
Hey hey hey, hey heyeah
