Camera Obscura – Lloyd I'm Ready To Be Heartbroken lyrics

Lloyd, I'm ready to be heartbroken

He said "I'll protect you like you are the crown jewels" yet
Said he's feeling sorrier for me the more I behave badly I can bet

Hey Lloyd I'm ready to be heartbroken
I can't see further than my own nose at the moment

Jealousy is more than a word now I understand
I know you can stay a girl by holding a boy's hand

Hey Lloyd I'm ready to be heartbroken
I can't see further than my own nose at the moment
Hey Lloyd I'm ready to be heartbroken
I can't see further than my own nose at the moment

I've got my life a compilation here to sort out
I'll take myself to an east coast city and walk about

Hey Lloyd I'm ready to be heartbroken
I can't see further than my own nose at the moment
Hey Lloyd I'm ready to be heartbroken
I can't see further than my own nose at the moment
Hey Lloyd I'm ready to be heartbroken
I can't see further than my own nose at the moment

    Easy. The girl in green is in love with the metaphorical lloyd, who is a good friend or maybe a very casual romantic interest. Lloyd is close to her, and says he'll always look out for her (protect you like the crown jewels) but he has no desire to commit and is in pursuit of other things, personified by the blonde.
    Meanwhile, the girl in green can't get past lloyd, and keeps trying to find distractions / attention grabbers (partying ie "the more badly i behave" & trips "take myself to an east coast city")
    All of it is of course, for naught. She knows she's going to be heart broken. She wants lloyd. Even though she knows it can truly never be, and that all of the experiences she's has have been very emotionally charged (good and bad, vastly different) in the line "i've got myself a compilation hit, sort of" meaning she could write an entire album on him!
    Also, it's totally linked to the lloyd cole song "are you ready to be heartbroken? "
