0:00:130:00:17

lined up for you tonight. Bruno Brookes and myself

0:00:170:00:19

have escaped from Radio 1, just for the night.

# We're not scared to lose it all

0:00:400:00:41

# Security thrown through the wall

0:00:410:00:44

# Future dreams we have to realise

0:00:440:00:48

# A thousand sceptic hands

0:00:480:00:50

# Won't keep us from the things we plan

0:00:500:00:53

# Unless we're clinging to the things we prize

0:00:530:00:57

# And do you feel scared? I do

0:00:590:01:03

# But I won't stop and falter

0:01:030:01:07

# And if we threw it all away

0:01:070:01:12

# Things can only get better

0:01:350:01:37

# The last, the final show

0:01:370:01:40

# Get to 60 and feel no regrets

0:01:400:01:44

# It may take a little time

0:01:440:01:46

# A lonely path, an uphill climb

0:01:460:01:48

# Success or failure will not alter it

0:01:480:01:52

# And do you feel scared? I do

0:01:540:01:58

# And I won't stop and falter

0:01:580:02:03

# And if they threw it all away

# Nothing is so good it lasts eternally

0:23:160:23:22

# Perfect situations must go wrong

0:23:240:23:29

# But this has never yet prevented me

0:23:310:23:36

# Wanting far too much for far too long

0:23:370:23:43

# Looking back, I could have played it differently

0:23:440:23:50

# Didn't I know

0:25:550:25:58

# How it would go

# Wasn't he fine?

0:26:140:26:16

# Isn't it madness

0:26:160:26:18

# He won't be mine?
