Conan Gray – Idle Town lyrics

[Verse 1]
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

[Pre-Chorus]
In our idle town, in our idle town

[Chorus]
Yeah, we invent our own little games (in our idle town)
When the lights out at the stadium, hey (in our idle town)
Making life a spinning arcade (in our idle town)
And curfew's at midnight, we watch the sunrise
We watch the sunrise
We watch the sun

[Verse 2]
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

[Pre-Chorus]
In our idle town, in our idle town

[Chorus]
Yeah, we invent our own little games (in our idle town)
When the lights out at the stadium, hey (in our idle town)
Making life a spinning arcade (in our idle town)
And curfew's at midnight, we watch the sunrise
We watch the sunrise
We watch the sun

[Bridge]
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

[Chorus]
Yeah we invent our own little games (in our idle town)
And everybody's trying to escape (in our idle town)
Killing time at the yellow café (in our idle town)
And curfew's at midnight (in our idle town)

[Outro]
Yeah I think that we'll all be okay (in our idle town)
The idle town will stay as it stays (in our idle town)
And everyone I love's in this place (in our idle town)
So curfew's at midnight
We watch the sunrise

    As Conan has said in his YouTube videos, many of is songs is about remembering and nostalgia. Conan will be going to college and remembering his town, friends, and life experience was very important. This song states how Conan is different and how he doesn't party like everyone else. It's really meaningful.
