When We Not Quite Ruled the World

This song was created for Game of Bands round 258 : "Nostalgia"

Lyrics:

In a corner of the basement
In a box of old LPs
You dug up the truth, the gospel
Oh, don't roll your eyes at me

Far outside the mainstream fashions
A movement few would understand
A message unlike any other
With a goal to shake the land

That's all to say
Your dad was in a band
That's all to say
Your dad was in a band
That's all to say
Your dad was in a band
That's all to say……


Let me take you back in time
(Not so long ago)
A story for the lucky few
(Still in the know)
Had the future in our hands
(Before it all unfurled)
The time we not quite almost ruled the world

Critics never understood us
And the crowds they weren't so big
Radio refused to play us
Never scored a mainstream hit

But the fans came from all over
For a sound heard nowhere else
And they still carry it with them
Ever loyal to the end

Maybe one day
You'll have your time as well
Maybe one day
You'll have your time as well
Maybe one day
You'll have your time as well
Maybe one day…….



Let me take you back in time
(Not so long ago)
A story for the lucky few
(Still in the know)
Had the future in our hands
(Before it all unfurled)
The time we not quite almost ruled the world

Let me take you back in time
(Not so long ago)
A story for the lucky few
(Still in the know)
Had the future in our hands
(Before it all unfurled)
The time we not quite almost ruled the world


The time we almost not quite ruled the world
The time we almost…….
