2002
Anne-Marie Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I will always remember
The day you kissed my lips
Light as a feather
And it went just like this
No, it's never been better
Than the summer of 2002 (ooh)
Uh, we were only eleven
But acting like grown-ups
Like we are in the present
Drinking from plastic cups
Singing, "Love is forever and ever"
Well, I guess that was true

(Ooh)

Dancing on the hood in the middle of the woods
On an old Mustang, where we sang
Songs with all our childhood friends
And it went like this, say

Oops, I got 99 problems singing bye, bye, bye
Hold up, if you wanna go and take a ride with me
Better hit me, baby, one more time, uh
Paint a picture for you and me
On the days when we were young, uh
Singing at the top of both our lungs

Now we're under the covers
Fast forward to eighteen
We are more than lovers
Yeah, we are all we need
When we're holding each other
I'm taken back to 2002 (ooh)
Yeah

Dancing on the hood in the middle of the woods
On an old Mustang, where we sang
Songs with all our childhood friends
And it went like this, say

Oops, I got 99 problems singing bye, bye, bye
Hold up, if you wanna go and take a ride with me
Better hit me, baby, one more time, uh
Paint a picture for you and me
On the days when we were young, uh
Singing at the top of both our lungs
On the day we fell in love
Ooh ooh, ooh ooh
On the day we fell in love
Ooh ooh, ooh ooh

Dancing on the hood in the middle of the woods
On an old Mustang, where we sang
Songs with all our childhood friends
Oh, now

Oops, I got 99 problems singing bye, bye, bye
Hold up, if you wanna go and take a ride with me
Better hit me, baby, one more time
Paint a picture for you and me
On the days when we were young
Singing at the top of both our lungs
On the day we fell in love
Ooh ooh, ooh ooh
On the day we fell in love
Ooh ooh, ooh ooh
On the day we fell in love
Ooh ooh, ooh ooh
On the day we fell in love




Ooh ooh, ooh ooh
On the day we fell in love, love, love

Overall Meaning

Anne-Marie's song "2002" reminisces about a summer fling that took place in 2002. She remembers the day she was kissed by her partner with a lightness that was comparable to that of a feather. The pair acted older than their age when they were just eleven years old, hanging out with friends while singing and drinking from plastic cups. They believed that love was forever and ever, and it turned out to be true. The relationship progressed from there until they were eighteen and are now more than just lovers. When they hold each other, Anne-Marie is taken back to 2002, where it all started.


The song has a bittersweet tone, with memories of the past mixed in with the present. The nostalgia invoked by the lyrics and melody combined together leaves the listener feeling wistful and pensive. The chorus is upbeat, where Anne-Marie sings with enthusiasm and free-spiritedness. The line "Oops, I got 99 problems singing bye, bye, bye" is a nod to the popular NSYNC song "Bye Bye Bye" and is one of the various cultural references in the song that is popular with those who grew up in the 2000s.

いつまでも忘れないわ
あなたが私にキスした日
羽のように軽かった
そして、こんな感じで進んでいったわ
いや、決して
2002年の夏を超えることはないわ
私たちはまだ11歳だった
大人のように振舞っていたよね
いまの私たちと同じように
プラスチックのコップで飲んで
「愛はいつだって永遠のもの」と歌っていた
そうね、あれは真実だったと思うわ
森への道で
フードをかぶりながら踊ってた
古いマスタングの上で
幼なじみと一緒に歌を歌ったね
そして、こんな感じで進んでいったの
ああ、私にはたくさんの問題があるわ
待って、私と一緒に乗ってくれるなら
もう一度私のことを呼んで
まだ若かったあの日
いま私たちはベッドの中
時は過ぎて18歳になり
私たちは恋人以上の関係だわ
私たちは本当に2002年に戻ったみたいだった
そう

森への道で
フードをかぶりながら踊ってた
古いマスタングの上で
幼なじみと一緒に歌を歌ったね
そして、こんな感じで進んでいっ
ああ、私にはたくさんの問題があるわ
待って、私と一緒に乗ってくれるなら
もう一度私のことを呼んで

まだ若かったあの日
あなたと私を思い描いて、心の底から歌ってた

私たちが恋に落ちたあの日
私たちが恋に落ちたあの日

森への道で
フードをかぶりながら踊ってた
古いマスタングの上で
幼なじみと一緒に歌を歌ったね
そして、こんな感じで進んでいったの
ああ、私にはたくさんの問題があるわ
待って、私と一緒に乗ってくれるなら
もう一度私のことを呼んで
まだ若かったあの日
あなたと私を思い描いて、心の底から歌ってた
私たちが恋に落ちたあの日
私たちが恋に落ちたあの日
あなたと私を思い描いて、心の底から歌ってた
