"Love Steals Us from Loneliness" as written by Colin Newton, Rod Pryce-jones, Allan William Stewart, Roddy Woomble and Gavin Bernard Fox....
Every step takes a beat of your heart
through a city that's falling apart
on a night that rises and clears
in a sky that's clouded by years
my anger is a form of majesty
So I'd rather have hope than sadness

And you said something
you said something stupid like
love steals us from loneliness
happy birthday, are you lonely yet?

I misplaced your face
in the shape of a smile
on a night that could never surprise me
don't tell me you're afraid of the past
it's only the future that didn't last
you're kidding yourself, kidding yourself
you're going nowhere and you're
going there fast

And you said something
you said something stupid like
love steals us from loneliness
happy birthday, are you lonely yet?
are you lonely yet?

    General Commentok i have never heard of idlewild before but i have heard this song a few times now and although musically its not my cup of tea, I love the lyrics, its a very direct, simple but intelligent song. I love the first verse especially. Wow.

    General Commentto me this song is between two people, one person in the relationship keeps saying "love steals us from loneliness" but i think the other person is unhappy in the relationship but hes having hope that it will carry on and get better.
    Mean while hes lonely and kidding himslef into something which can never be replaced.....
    in the end no matter how in love you are with some one loneliness will always be around you.

    General CommentSeriously guys - this new Idlewild stuff is NOTHING compared to their old stuff, especiall the '100 Broken Windows' album. You have to check it out.

    However, I do think this is a strong single, a lot more mellower than their first two albums. But lets be honest, 'The Remote Part' was heading that way. To me, they were a totally different band when they recording 'Hope Is Important'.

    General Commentthe chorus remids me of a relationship i am in now. for the longest time i wanted someone to be with, to love and be loved. but now that i have found it i realize that surprsingly i am lonlier now. i have grown distant with all of my friends, and they make assumptions about whom i rather spend my time with. i dont think ill have many people celebrating my birthday with me this year....
