Old Yellow Bricks
Arctic Monkeys Lyrics


Old yellow bricks
Love's a risk
Quite the little 'escapologist'
Looked so miffed
When you wished
For a thousand places better than this

You are the fugitive
But you don't know what you're runnin' from
You can't kid us
And you couldn't trick anyone
Houdini, love you don't know what you're runnin' away from

Who wants to sleep in the city that never wakes up?
Blinded by nostalgia
Who wants to sleep in the city that never wakes up?

She was enraged but the way
That the emperor put traps in the cage
And the days she been dull
Lead to nights readin' beer bottles

You're such a fugitive
But you don't know what you're runnin' from
You can't kid us
And you couldn't trick anyone
Houdini, love you don't know what you're runnin' away from

Who wants to sleep in the city that never wakes up?
Blinded by nostalgia
Who wants to sleep in a city that never wakes up?

You're at a loss
Just because
It wasn't all that you thought it was

You are a fugitive, but you don't know what you're runnin' away from

She said, "I want to sleep in the city that never wakes up
And revel in nostalgia."
I know I said he wants to sleep in the city that never wakes up, but
Dorothy was right though

꧁꧂Huachatu toad꧁꧂

"Old yellow brick love a risk quite the little escapologist Looked so miffed when you wished for a thousand places better than this"
Creo que con esto se refiere que la chica le fue mal en el amor o no era lo que ella quería y huyó
"You are the fugitive bit you don't know what you're runnin from you can't kid us and you couldn't trick Anyone houdini love you don't know what you're runnin away from"
Habla de que la chica no sabe de que está escapando osea que no está conforme con nada mejor dicho no sabe lo que quiere y houdini era un mago que su mayor truco era escapar de cadenas
"Who Wants to sleep in the city that never wakes up blinde by nostalgia Who Wants to sleep in the city that never wakes up"
Con la ciudad que nunca despierta y que están cegados por la nostalgia esta hablando de que la chica está activa osea buscando un lugar para quedarse y esta recordando sus antiguos "hogares"
"She was enragedcby the way that the emperor put traps un the cage and the day she bring full lead to nights readin ber bottles"
El emperador es de lo que ella estaba escapando y puso trampas para que no llegara a encontrar un lugar a donde quedarse
"You're at a loss just because it wasn't all that you though it was"
Finalmente logra escapar pero no era lo que ella esperaba
"Dorothy was Wright though"
Dorothy es la niña de el mago de Oz y ella dijo "no hay lugar como el hogar" esta línea habla de que la chica se da cuenta que de lo que escapaba no era tan malo
Todo ese viaje para nada >=(



개비정한세상

Old yellow bricks,
Love's a risk,
Quite the little Escapoligist
Looked so miffed,
When you wished,
For a thousand places better than this,

You are the fugitive,
But you dont know what you're runnin from,
You cant kid us,
And you couldnt trick anyone,
Houdini, love you dont know what you're runnin away from,

Who wants to sleep in the city that never wakes up?
Blinded by nostalgia,
Who wants to sleep in the city that never wakes up?

She wasnt raised by the way,
That the emperor put traps in the cage,
And the days she being dull,
Lead to nights readin beer bottles,

You're such a fugitive,
But you dont know what you're runnin from,
You cant kid us,
And you couldnt trick anyone,
Houdini, love you dont know what you're runnin away from,

Who wants to sleep in the city that never wakes up?
Blinded by nostalgia,
Who wants to sleep in a city that never wakes up?

You're at a loss,
Just because,
It wasnt all that you thought it was,

You are a fugitive but you dont know what you're runnin away from,

She said I want to sleep in the city that never wakes up,
And revel in nostalgia,
I know I said he wants to sleep in the city that never wakes up but,
Dorothy was right though
