Only the Young

Brandon Flowers, lead singer for the Killer's has become a one man show. His new rhythm is great, and Reverence for the past often goes without words.

I've read different interpretations of the song suggesting that only the young can break away from the past the past. I beg to differ. Only the young at heart, only those who live life with the same passion they did as they were young can continue to break away. It's a perpetual liberating cycle.

If I could somehow capture the beauty of this moment, raw and new, I would. If I could describe the simplicity of life associated without technology I would. If I could describe in great detail the highlights of my life to this very day, and with a verse or two about the personalities I've had the privilege to accompany me, I would. If I could describe what it feels like and what it means to be human, and what it means to be alive and well, I would. But instead, I surrender myself to the Greats-what has to be said has already been said.


















 
Only the Young Lyrics

Look back in silence
The cradle of your whole life
There in the distance
Losing its greatest pride
Nothing is easy, nothing is sacred, why?
Where did the bow break?
It happened before your time

And there were people there
Lovely as you'd ever care
Tonight, maybe you can start again
Laughing in the open air
Have yourself another dream
Tonight, maybe we can start again

Only the young can break away, break away
Lost when the wind blows, on your own
Only the young can break away, break away
Lost when the wind blows, on your own

Mother, it's cold here
Father, thy will be done
Thunder and lightning are crashing down
They got me on the run
Direct me to the sun
Redemption, keep my covers clean tonight
Baby, we can start again

Only the young can break away, break away
Lost when the wind blows, on your own
Only the young can break away, break away
Lost when the wind blows, on your own

And the sun will shine again
And the sun will shine again
Are you looking for a sign?
Or are you caught up in the lie?

Only the young can break away, break away
Lost when the wind blows, on your own
Only the young can break away, break away
Lost when the wind blows, on your own
