Everything's Broken Now

Idlewild
"Quiet Crown"
Listen | Buy

NOTES: This CD, 100 Broken Windows, and this song especially, remind me of Ryan. I was listening to this CD a lot when we broke up, and the chorus of this song kept stabbing at my poor little broken heart. I have no idea where Crowsdell is (likely in the UK somewhere) and I no clue who Ben Hoy is (probably someone's non-famous friend).

I want to fly a little to the right
I'll never get to Crowsdell
And I want to stay awake all night
To realize (I'm not Ben Hoy)

What should I take with me to the North
It's the good North
The promised success, the appropriate North
It's the good North

Apparently you're happy, you realized
I'm meant to be unhappy, I've realized (I'm not Ben Hoy)

What should I take with me to the North
It's the good North
The promised success, the appropriate North
It's the good North

'Cause I want to reunite
Iíll never save (What will you save?)
When everything's broken now
I want to reunite
Iíll never save (What will you save?)
Everything's broken

I want to fly a little to the right
I'll never get to Crowsdell
And I want to stay awake all night
To realize (I'm not Ben Hoy)

What should I take with me to the North
It's the good North
The promised success, the appropriate North
It's the good North

'Cause I want to reunite
I need to save (What will you save?)
When everything's broken now
I want to reunite
I need to save (What will you save?)
When everything's broken now

Everything's gone now
Everything's gone now
Everything's gone running without a sound

That's really sweet.
Idlewild have lyrics like that. Universal to the particular. Not like any other kind of lyric which are so ambiguous, could mean anything. And to anyone.
THAT'S probably why every song on the radio is relevant.
