"Little Thoughts" as written by and Kele/lissack Okereke....
Been thinking little thoughts
Keep on walking try to stay up
Pay Attention to the details
We go slowly, slowly down
Been thinking little thoughts
Keep on walking try to stay up
Pay Attention to the details
We go slowly, down

I'll go back if you ask
I'll go back if you ask me
I'll go back if you ask
I'll go back if you ask me
I'll go back if you ask
I'll go back if you ask me
I'll go back if you ask me
I'll Go back, B, B, B, backwards

This world ain't just m, m, m, made of facts
Every half hour is a countdown
If it's 'cause of my age then you're a coward
If it's 'cause of my age then you're a coward
If it's 'cause of my age then you're a coward
I haven't got the guts to stand alone

I'll go back if you ask
I'll go back if you ask me
I'll go back if you ask
I'll go back if you ask me
I'll go back if you ask
I'll go back if you ask me
I'll go back if you ask me
I'll Go back, B, B, B, backwards


I'll go back if you ask
I'll go back if you ask me
I'll go back if you ask
I'll go back if you ask me
I'll go back if you ask
I'll go back if you ask me
I'll go back if you ask me
I'LL go back B, B, B, backwards!

    General CommentI think that this song is about the singer being in love with a girl who is younger than him, and he's saying that he wishes that he could go back in time so that he is her age.

    General Commentit jus reminds me of the raw parts of a relationship where your loosing what you had and you stick your neck on the line. i agree with the thing about age being a theme although it doesn't mean its the singer.. the song writer could have created a charecter x

    General CommentThe exclusion of this track is the only bad point of Silent Alarm. I Love this track, i think it could have replaced one of the weaker tracks on the album.
    Thinking about it, thereisnoiinteam could be right about the lyrics.

    General Commentyes. i also think that this song is about him being in love with someone who is younger than him. i dont thinkhe minds about the age but the younger girl seems to care a little bit more. he is willing to do whatever i think.

    General CommentOdd. I downloaded a copy of Silent Alarm without this on it, although when I bought it, it had it as track number 10. So I definitely have no idea what's going on.

    I didn't like it as much the first time I heard it, but I've come to love this song. It does seem to be about wanting to reduce your age to be with someone younger. I'm surprised a song like this got written, and even more surprised that it got written so well.

    General CommentThis song is on the US version, but not the UK version. So if you bought Silent Alarm as an import, it won't have this song on it.
