    I'd rather live in Adelaide and be as is, than live in Sydney or Melbourne and be a pretentious git.

    roger_explosion said "anyone who has lived in adelaide, or knows adelaide... this song just *sounds* like adelaide. luff you ben foldz" lol, it's way more dramatic sounding than Adelaide will ever be. The line "a voice says 'why Adelaide? You could live anywhere" and I say because I want to" is so true though.
