L Y R I C S:

this town will never change
people come and go, it's all the same
speed the roads on our doubting days
to any place that's far away

i never learned anybody's name
we all vowed that we wouldn't stay
kissing signs on the interstate
all we do for now is sit and wait

in our idle town, in our idle town

yeah, we invent our own little games
when the lights out at the stadium, hey
making life a spinning arcade
and curfew's at midnight, we watch the sunrise

we watch the sunrise

we watch the sun

springtime when the air is thin
we're getting antsy and they're noticing
while everybody's off partying
we're watching stars over ice-cream

and now we're kicking up to seventh gear
and we're breathing in the atmosphere
and i don't even need a sip of beer
yeah i can feel it all

in our idle town, in our idle town

yeah, we invent our own little games
when the lights out at the stadium, hey
making life a spinning arcade
and curfew's at midnight, we watch the sunrise

we watch the sunrise

we watch the sun

and they watched the sunrise
blinking out of red eyes, and sore minds
the airplanes keep flying by, and they cry
cause they've never even touched the sky
no they'll never even touch the sky

yeah we invent our own little games
and everybody's trying to escape
killing time at the yellow café
and curfew's at midnight

yeah i think that we'll all be okay
the idle town will stay as it stays
and everyone i love's in this place
so curfew's at midnight
we watch the sunrise.


M A S S I V E thank you to my best pal ashley for being the executive co creative director of this silly video, i love you so much. thank you for putting up with all my nonsense and for giving me enough laughs for a lifetime. also thank you for filming this video with me and for being as crazy and ambitious as me. i just think it's funny how.

thank you, all of YOU for making my senior year of highschool so wonderful and magical. if it weren't for you all, i would not have survived the whole deal. i am forever grateful.

see y'all in a few days

this song means so much to me. i found conan about a year after this song was released and i was in a really dark place. i was at college, with no friends, in a city that i never wanted to move to. this song reminded me so much of my small hometown and the innocent high school experience i had with my friends. when conan left college after signing a record deal because of this song, it kind of became my anthem to getting out of the situation i was in. one year of listening to this song on repeat later, i moved to nyc to live a lifelong dream of mine. a week after moving, i met conan at his nyc show and had him write out 'idle town' for me. about a month ago, i got his handwriting tattoed on my arm and i will forever live with his words on me and in my heart. i think that in another life, conan and i may have known each other. when watching his videos and hearing his songs, i have a feeling of being homesick for a person i don't even know. if the only way we cross paths in this lifetime is through his music, i'm glad i at least made it here.

Crazy how different his singing style is now. He has evolved so much as an artist but the raw talent has always been there. He is such a good song writer its insane.

LYRICS:

L Y R I C S:

this town will never change
people come and go, it's all the same
speed the roads on our doubting days
to any place that's far away

i never learned anybody's name
we all vowed that we wouldn't stay
kissing signs on the interstate
all we do for now is sit and wait

in our idle town, in our idle town

yeah, we invent our own little games
when the lights out at the stadium, hey
making life a spinning arcade
and curfew's at midnight, we watch the sunrise

we watch the sunrise

we watch the sun

springtime when the air is thin
we're getting antsy and they're noticing
while everybody's off partying
we're watching stars over ice-cream

and now we're kicking up to seventh gear
and we're breathing in the atmosphere
and i don't even need a sip of beer
yeah i can feel it all

in our idle town, in our idle town

yeah, we invent our own little games
when the lights out at the stadium, hey
making life a spinning arcade
and curfew's at midnight, we watch the sunrise

we watch the sunrise

we watch the sun

and they watched the sunrise
blinking out of red eyes, and sore minds
the airplanes keep flying by, and they cry
cause they've never even touched the sky
no they'll never even touch the sky

yeah we invent our own little games
and everybody's trying to escape
killing time at the yellow café
and curfew's at midnight

yeah i think that we'll all be okay
the idle town will stay as it stays
and everyone i love's in this place
so curfew's at midnight
we watch the sunrise.
