PostSubject: Are You Awake?   Wed 3 Feb 2010 - 10:34

I hade love in a backyard
I went out one day and took it apart
like my dad used to do on a sunny afternoon
break something old to build something new.
and I woke up
at the start of the day
to24 hours that were mine to fake
and you can break it for so long
when you're a boy on the run never doing nothing wrong.
are you awake?
are you alive?
you look dead to me when I looked in your eyes.


should be right (if I didn't make any typing mistakes ;) )

I really love the long intro from the song! =)

Up to now, I think it's their best live song. Well, yes, maybe it has to do with the fact, that Ben left the stage and played in the midst of the audience last Thursday in Munich. ;)
It reminds me a little bit of the experimental part in "Lucid Dreams" by Franz Ferdinand.
And last but not least: I love the simple, but true line: "break something old to build something new".

One of their "strong sentences", goes right to my heart.

Soulmate > wooow that's great for your friend ! I wish i could have seen that.

[Emotional-retard] > personally it actually makes me dance and shout :face:

This song is the perfect ending for each of their concerts. Great party at the end and you go home with a big smile on your face. It's getting a tradition like "I am the walrus" as last song in an Oasis gig - you're looking forward to it excitedly, but at the same time you're kind of sad, because the party's over in a few minutes.
