Broken Boy Soldier


A single day hasn't passed in the last couple of weeks without me playing at least 2-3 times this song while driving to and back from work. I simply love the sound, but obviously that's not the reason why, as I've known this song for so many years now. I don't know how is it with you but with me this happens quite often: getting obsessed with eating a food, drinking a drink, reading a specific book, listening to a particular song like non-stop for a certain period.
What is the real reason why I've developed this hungriness for the Broken Boy Soldier right now, I can't tell. More to that, until recently I was absolutely sure that my favourite Raconteurs' song was Blue Veins...

Whatever he reason, its melody speaks directly to my blood and makes me sing and feel better.

Here it comes:


And here are the lyrics:

I'm pulling my questions from my shelf
I'm asking forgiveness
I'm asking about it by myself
And I want you to know this
And I want you to know this

You're rifling through a bunch of toys
That were handed down to me
Just take all the ones you want and then
Give the rest to my family

I'm going back to school today
But I'm dropping myself off
I'm throwing the childhood scenes away
I'm through ripping myself off
I'm done ripping myself off

Well I'm child and man and child again
The toy broken boy soldier

I'm child and man and child again
The boy never gets older
The boy never gets older
The boy never gets older
The boy never gets older
The boy never gets older
Never gets older

The boy broken toy soldier
The boy
The boy...
