My Dad smacked his head on a concrete block. His brain was two centimetres off centre. As he was being put into an ambulance he thought it was 1963. It fascinated me as to why 1963 was the year his mind went to. Was there a reason? Did it give him comfort?
It's 1963. I'm pretty sure this could be a dream. When I wake I'm gonna run and shake and scream. You would too if you'd known where I've been. Sit back and listen to my 1963. It's 1963, I'm 16 and bursting at the seams. Just starting out in 1963. Have you heard of the Great Train Robbery? Assassination of Kennedy. Duchess left the Duke. The Profumo Scandel leaked. What a year was 1963! Falling in love when The Beatles hit the scene. Man-U won the Cup. Everton won the league. That was football in 1963. That was football when I was 16. It's 1963. I time-travelled from Twenty-Fifteen. Nineteen-Eighties come and go. I liked the Seventies on the Radio, but I think I'll settle in 1963. I think I'll settle in 1963.
