Angus Stone – Broken Brights lyrics

Is that the old man walking in the dark?
Is that the old man walking in the dark?
Is that the old man walking in the dark?
Is that the old man walking in the dark?

Take me home
Where them broken brights
Are shining down
Make me feel alright

When we were young
When we were young
When we were young
When we were young

Is that the old man walking in the dark?
Is that the old man walking in the dark?
Is that the old man walking in the dark?
Is that the old man walking in the dark?

Shake them?
Let me lust tonight
We'll grow young
Make me feel alright

When we were young
When we were young
When we were young
When we were young

Is that the old man walking in the dark?
Is that the old man walking in the dark?
Is that the old man walking in the dark?
Is that the old man?

    I think this music reminds the lyrical self about they childhood days when talking with someone, (probably his sister) that experienced that period of his life by his side. Because we can see that he's looking at his father figure while talking with someone who also sees that person as their father figures too. And the line which he says "Make me feel alright" can be interpreted by various meanings, and is up to the listener to decide which this sentence means, from an innocent point of view or a perverse one instead. These two lines by themselves makes me feel nostalgic somehow, and instead of experiencing a bad nostalgia feeling, I can relate with him and remind myself about the good times I've spent with my cousins and friends while growing up and playing hide and seek; making puzzles; creating random songs about random things.
