    Belle and Sebastian - Another Sunny Day

    4:05

    Lyrics:
    Another sunny day, I met you up in the garden
    You were digging plants, I dug you, beg your pardon
    I took a photograph of you in the herbaceous border
    It broke the heart of men and flowers, and girls, and trees

    Another rainy day, we're trapped inside with a train set
    Chocolate on the boil, steamy windows when we met
    You've got the attic window lookin' out on the cathedral
    And on a Sunday evening bells ring out in the dusk

    Another day in June, we'll pick eleven for football
    We're playing for our lives the referee gives us fuck all
    I saw you in the corner of my eye on the sidelines
    Your dark mascara bids me to historical deeds

    Now, everybody's gone you picked me up for a long drive
    We take the tourist route the nights are light until midnight
    We took the evening ferry over to the peninsula
    We found the avenue of trees went up to the hill
    That crazy avenue of trees, I'm living there still

    There's something in my eye a little midge so beguiling
    Sacrificed his life to bring us both eye to eye
    I heard the eskimos remove obstructions with tongues, dear
    You missed my eye, I wonder why, I didn't complain
    You missed my eye, I wonder why, please do it again

    The lovin' is a mess, what happened to all of the feeling?
    I thought it was for real, babies, rings and fools kneeling
    And words of pledging trust and lifetimes stretching forever
    So what went wrong? It was a lie, it crumbled apart
    Ghost figures of past, present, future haunting the heart

    (I do not own this song.)

    Nobody's Empire

    Lying on my bed I was reading French
    With the light too bright for my senses
    From this hiding place, life was way too much
    It was loud and rough round the edges

    So I faced the wall when an old man called
    Out of dreams that I would die there
    But a sight unseen, you were pulling strings
    And you had a different idea

    I was like a child, I was light as straw
    When my father lifted me up there
    Took me to a place where they checked my body
    My soul was floating in thin air

    I clung to the bed, and I clung to the past
    And I clung to the welcome darkness
    But at the end of the night
    There’s a green green light
    It’s the quiet before the madness

    There was a girl that sang like the chime of a bell
    She put out her arm and she touched me when I was in hell

    Someone sang a song and I sang along
    Cause I knew the words from my childhood
    Intellect, ambition they fell away
    They locked me up for my own good

    But I didn’t mind cause the silence was kind
    And you spoke to me in whispers
    There was the sound of the wind in the cold cold dawn
    And the quiet hum of business

    Let me dangle a while in this waiting room
    I don’t need to go I don’t need to know what your doing

    Lying on my side you were half awake and your face was tired and crumpled
    If I had a camera I’d snap you now ‘cause there’s beauty in every stumble

    We are out of practise we're out of sight
    On the edge of nobody’s empire
    If we live by books and we live by hope
    Does that make us targets for gunfire?

    Now I look at you you’re a mother of two
    You’re a quiet revolution
    Marching with the crowd singing dirty and loud
    For the people’s emancipation

    Did I do ok, did I pave the way?
    Was I strong when you were wanting?
    I was tied to the yoke with a decent bloke
    Who was stern but never daunting

    And he told me to push and he made me feel well
    And he told me to leave that vision of hell to the dying

    Belle & Sebastian Piazza, New York Catcher

    3:02

    Elope with me Miss Private and we'll sail around the world
    I will be your Ferdinand and you my wayward girl
    How many nights of talking in hotel rooms can you take?
    How many nights of limping round on pagan holidays?
    Oh elope with me in private and we'll set something ablaze
    A trail for the devil to erase

    San Francisco's calling us, the Giants and Mets will play
    Piazza, New York catcher, are you straight or are you gay?
    We hung about the stadium, we've got no place to stay
    We hung about the tenderloin and tenderly you tell
    About the saddest ending of a book you ever had to read
    The statue's crying too and well he may

    I love you I've a drowning grip on your adoring face
    I love you my responsibility has found a place
    Beside you and strong warnings in the guise of gentle words
    Come wave upon me from the wider family net absurd
    You'll take care of her, I know it, you will do a better job
    Maybe, but not what she deserves

    Elope with me Miss Private and we'll drink ourselves awake
    ( From: )
    We'll taste the coffee houses and award certificates
    A privy seal to keep the feel of 1960 style
    We'll comment on the decor and we'll help the passer by
    And at dusk when work is over we'll continue the debate
    In a borrowed bedroom virginal and spare

    The catcher hits for .318 and catches every day
    The pitcher puts religion first and rests on holidays
    He goes into cathedrals and lies prostrate on the floor
    He knows the drink affects his speed he's praying for
    a doorway
    Back into the life he wants and the confession of the bench
    Life outside the diamond is a wrench

    I wish that you were here with me to pass the dull weekend
    I know it wouldn't come to love, my heroine pretend
    A lady stepping from the songs we love until this day
    You'd settle for an epitaph like Walk Away, Renee
    The sun upon the roof in winter will draw you out like
    a flower
    Meet you at the statue in an hour
    Meet you at the statue in an hour

    We Were Beautiful

    I was blank as I could be
    Hearing voices telling me
    Walk away from everything
    But where was I meant to go?
    Far away from those I know
    To some desolate below

    We were in the uber scene
    Where they grind the coffee bean
    And the women are oblique
    And the boys are paper thin
    Ragged beards upon their chin
    We are on the outside looking in

    Rise above the present day
    Rise above the popular melee
    I see you the way you are
    I see you the star

    We were beautiful before this went down
    We were beautiful before the years came
    And turned it upside down
    We were beautiful before we got wise
    We were beautiful with sky and blanket laying low

    I am hanging on the line
    I'm on duty all the time
    I am your Samaritan on call
    I could try my best to heal
    All the emptiness you feel
    In the giving I will be alive

    We were wrapped around our roots
    Nothing on except our boots
    We were intimate around the waist
    We were settling our scores
    We were healing over sores
    We were living out the pleasure that we lost

    We were beautiful before this went down
    We were beautiful before the years came
    And turned it upside down
    We were beautiful for all of time and space
    I will tell it to the sun and I will tell it to..

    If you listen to the night
    We can hear the madmen fight
    Hear the foxes making out
    But the people are immune
    Sleeping silent in their rooms
    Growing bodies with their sleep
    Making plans inside their heads
    Making love to shallow friends
    Shallow friends

    You are not too old to change
    Happy only comes after the pain
    Of you and me

    We were beautiful before the years
    came and turned it upside down
    We were beautiful before we got wise
    We were beautiful with sky and blanket fading out

    We were beautiful before this went down
    We were beautiful before the years
    came and turned it upside down
    We were beautiful for all of time and space
    I will tell it to the sun and I will tell it to your face

    --

    Éramos hermosos (español)

    Estaba en blanco
    Escuchaba voces diciéndome
    Escapa de todo
    ¿Pero a dónde debía ir?
    Lejos de aquellos que conozco,
    A algún lugar inhóspito.

    Estábamos en el mejor lugar
    Donde muelen los granos de café.
    Y las mujeres son oblicuas
    Y los chicos tan delgados como papel,
    Barbas andrajosas sobre su mentón.
    Miramos la escena desde afuera.

    Supera el día de hoy,
    Supera el famoso tumulto.
    Te veo tal como eres.
    Veo tu estrella.

    Éramos hermosos antes de que esto decayera
    Éramos hermosos antes de que los años pasaran
    Y pusieran todo boca abajo
    Éramos hermosos antes de ser sabios.
    Éramos hermosos bajo la manta y bajo el cielo.

    Estoy a la espera
    Estoy en guardia todo el tiempo
    Soy tu samaritano en turno
    Haría lo imposible para sanar
    El vacío que sientes
    Al ayudar estaré vivo

    Atrapados en nuestras raíces
    Con nada más que nuestras botas
    Íntimos por la cintura
    Resolvíamos nuestras disputas
    Sanábamos nuestros heridas
    Vivíamos el placer que alguna vez perdimos

    Éramos hermosos antes de que esto decayera
    Éramos hermosos antes de que los años pasaran
    Y pusieran todo boca abajo
    Éramos hermosos a través del tiempo y el espacio
    Se lo diré al sol y se lo diré a…

    Si escuchas a la noche
    Podemos oír a los locos pelear
    A los zorros liándose
    Pero la gente es inmune
    Duerme tranquila en su habitación
    Cuerpos crecen mientras sueñan
    Hacen planes en sus mentes
    Hacen el amor a amigos superficiales.
    Amigos superficiales.

    No eres demasiado viejo para cambiar.
    La felicidad sólo llega después del dolor
    Tuyo y mío

    Éramos hermosos antes de que los años pasaran
    y pusieran todo boca abajo
    Éramos hermosos antes de ser sabios
    Éramos hermosos con la manta y el cielo desvaneciéndose.

    Éramos hermosos antes de que esto decayera
    Éramos hermosos antes de que los años pasaran
    y pusieran todo boca abajo.
    Éramos hermosos a través del tiempo y el espacio.
    Se lo diré al sol y se lo diré a tu rostro.

    Perfect Couples

    I know some friends of mine
    Think about them all the time
    Why can’t my life be like that?
    I’ve seen them in the park
    Restauranting after dark
    Working out on their yoga mats
    Stars of the dancehall crowd
    Married young, took their vows
    Comfort in their boldness and their flair

    Dab hands for all to see
    Stroke of brush and poetry
    His cut of cloth, the contours of her hair

    Thank you for the invite tonight
    Perfect snacklets, perfect drinks
    I’m getting ideas from your interiors
    Perfect apartment, perfect kids

    Perfect couples are breaking up
    What have they done?
    Those perfect couples are breaking up
    What have they done?
    Don’t make me feel so good
    Expect that stuff in Hollywood,
    Not in my current milieu

    Sexual tension at the fridge
    He makes for the organic figs
    Belmondo lips, dangling a cig

    And she, just back from her hike
    And to the gallery she might glide by
    With a basket on a bike

    They’ve got issues too
    But what can you do?
    Bad times, they’ll always see them through

    (It always lurked in her mind)
    Perfect couples are breaking up
    What have they done? (In the back of her mind)
    Perfect couples, they keep breaking up
    What have I done? (It always lurked in his mind)
    Those perfect couples are now breaking up
    What have they done? (In the back of their minds)
    Perfect couples, they keep breaking up
    What have I done?

    Never happy with my girl
    Jealous of a different world
    Suddenly the years slip away

    What am I waiting for? (I see those perfect couples and I)
    What makes me close the door?
    I see those perfect couples (Why can’t I be like them?)
    I admire the most
    Finding fault with my heart (Its always been the same and then)
    And always back to the start
    What makes me get in the fray
    then just throw it away
    Yeah, I throw it away
    Yes I throw it away (only to find)
    Yes I throw it away (only to find)

    Perfect couples are breaking up…

    Belle and Sebastian - Write about Love

    3:30

    Belle and Sebastian - Write about Love
    Album Write about Love (2010)



    I know a spell
    That would you make help
    Write about love, it could be in any tense, but it must make sense

    I know a trick
    Forget that you are sick
    Write about love, it could be in any form, hand it to me in the morning

    I hate my job, I'm working way too much (every day I'm stuck in an office)
    At one o'clock, I take my lunch up on the roof
    The city's right below, I'll ride upon a friend
    He's intellectual and he's hot, but he understands

    The seconds move on (if you watch the clock)
    And the sky grows dark (if you're looking up)
    And the girls move from thrill to thrill on the tightrope walk (on the tightrope walk)

    I hate my job, I'm working way too much (every day I'm stuck in an office)
    At one o'clock, I take my lunch up on the roof
    The city's right below, I'll ride upon a friend
    He's intellectual and he's hot, but he understands

    I know a way (so you know the way)
    Get on your skinny knees and pray (Maybe not today)
    You've got to see the dream through the windows and the trees of your living room (of your living room)
    You've got to see the dream through the windows and the trees of your living room

    Belle & Sebastian - Stay Loose Lyrics

    6:44

    I was choking on a cornflake
    You said Have some toast instead
    I was sleeping maybe three hours
    You said You should get to bed
    I was waiting at the church door
    For the minister to show
    I was looking at the new year
    You said Walk before you crawl
    I was feeling like a loser
    You said Hey, you've still got me
    I was feeling pretty lonely
    You said You wanted to be free
    I was looking for a good time
    You said Let the good times start
    With a quiver of your eyelid
    You took on someone else's part
    Maybe I'm a little greedy
    You said Think before you speak
    Sometimes I'm a little seedy
    You said Everyone is weak
    Now I feel a little better
    Is there something I can do?
    But I never heard the answer
    I never had a clue
    But what about me
    I don't really see
    How things will improve
    If all you want is to stay loose
    There's a little echo calling
    Like a miner trapped inside
    If I tell her of this moment
    She will in me doubts confide
    And she's on me like a blanket
    Like a stalk of wilting grass
    I'm not sure about her motives
    I'm not sure about her past
    But my faith is like a bullet
    My belief is like a bolt
    The only thing that lets me sleep at night
    A little carriage of the soul
    If it starts a little bleaker
    Then the year may yet be gold
    Happiness is not for keeping
    Happiness is not my goal
    But what about me
    I don't really see
    How things will improve
    If all you want is to stay loose
    But what about them
    You play mother hen
    To a gaggle of gangling youth
    All you want is to stay loose
    I was living through the seconds
    My composure was a mess
    I was miles from tenderness
    It was dark outside, the day it was lying in pieces
    Everything is flat and dreary
    I couldn't care what's in the news
    Television is the blues
    Television is hysterical laughter of people
    And I know it could be me
    I'm always asking for more
    I keep running around in circles
    I keep looking for a doorway
    I'm going to need two lives
    To follow the paths I've been taking

    Belle and Sebastian signed to Jeepster Recordings in 1996 soon after the limited edition, vinyl only release of their debut album Tigermilk. Their first Jeepster album, If You’re Feeling Sinister, was soon followed by the Dog On Wheels, Lazy Line Painter Jane and 3..6..9 Seconds of Light EPs which kept their growing fanbase supplied with new music while they recorded third album The Boy With The Arab Strap. The Bowlie Weekender Festival where this footage was filmed came soon after the band’s surprise Brit Award win for Best Newcomer!

    Belle & Sebastian - Paper Boat

    There's no Paper Boat video on youtube, so I figured I'd upload one of my favorite Belle & Sebastian songs. This was never released on an album.
