"Besides," she said outside the tent
"They are playing out song"
We're bent, we're broke, we're leaning on each other
Duffled and drunk and the fumes billowing out
And the city seems so distant
"And besides," she said
"We got time left, we're only half dead
We're only half dead," so goodnight

Fall apart baby
We'll just fall apart, fall apart

To Kill a King - Besides She Said lyrics meaning


To Kill a King's official lyric explanation

Besides She Said is about... it's basically about a couple who were two friends that are not going to see each other for a long time. But they're at a festival and they're talking about the old times, but they're both going onto something new, but they know that they will always be friends. It's that sort of story really.

Like, I suppose, also leaving - because I was from Leeds originally. I think when you leave an area where you have a certain group of friends, there's that conversations we had, you know, you're not going to see them as much as you were.

But I think, with certain people, your relationships are always going to stay the same.
