    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

    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.

    I’ll Be Your Pilot

    I’ve got your dreams completely
    I’ve got them locked away
    That doesn’t mean I own you
    Or control a hair of your sweet head

    I won’t leave you to suffer
    I won’t let them prevail
    I know a trap door, short cut,
    Gate into the wilds of the free air

    Lying here in the sweet sahara
    Thousand miles to the nearest problem
    I see you sleep, it’s amazingly sweet
    I will keep you safe
    I’ll be your pilot

    It’s tough to become a grown up
    Put it off while you can
    I tell you that when
    you land in the real world
    It’s like quick sand

    Grabbing for what is owed you
    Crying for what is gone
    Playing the game to
    look and feel and think
    the same as the next child

    Lying here in the sweet sahara
    Thousand miles to the nearest problem
    I see you sleep, it’s amazingly sweet
    I will keep you safe
    I’ll be your pilot

    Lying here with a busted engine
    Sun and sky and the sound of silence
    I feel your presence
    No, it doesn't make sense
    You can sign me up
    I’ll be your pilot

    Seré tu piloto (español)

    Tengo todos tus sueños,
    los tengo bajo llave.
    No significa que sea tu dueño
    o que controle alguna fibra de tu ser

    No te dejaré sufrir,
    tampoco que te dominen.
    Conozco una trampa, un atajo,
    una entrada a lo salvaje del aire libre.

    Recostado en el dulce Sahara,
    a miles de kilómetros del problema más cercano,
    te veo dormir, es increíblemente dulce.
    Te mantendré a salvo.
    Seré tu piloto.

    Es duro crecer,
    posponlo mientras puedas.
    Te advierto que cuando
    aterrizas en el mundo real,
    Es como arenas movedizas

    Tomando lo que te deben,
    Llorando por lo que se fue
    Jugando el juego
    Para ver, sentir y pensar
    Lo mismo que el de al lado

    Recostado aquí, en el dulce Sahara
    a miles de kilómetros del problema más cercano.
    Te veo dormir, es increíblemente dulce.
    Te mantendré a salvo.
    Seré tu piloto.

    Recostado aquí con un motor averiado,
    El sol, el cielo y el sonido del silencio,
    Siento tu presencia.
    No, no tiene sentido
    Puedes tenerme en cuenta
    Seré tu piloto

    --

    Eu Serei Seu Piloto (português)

    Tenho seus sonhos completamente
    Eu os tenho trancados
    Isso não significa que eu seja você
    Ou controle um fio de cabelo da sua doce cabeça

    Eu não vou deixar você sofrer
    Não vou deixar que eles vençam
    Conheço uma porta de armadilha, um corte curto,
    Porta para selva do ar livre

    Deitado aqui no doce Sahara
    Mil milhas para o problema mais próximo
    Eu vejo você dormir, é incrivelmente doce
    Eu vou manter você seguro
    Eu serei seu piloto

    É difícil se tornar um adulto
    Pare enquanto você pode
    Eu lhe digo que, quando
    você pousa no mundo real
    É como areia movediça

    Agarrando o que lhe é devido
    Chorando pelo que se foi
    Jogando o jogo para
    olhe e sinta e pense
    o mesmo que o próximo filho

    Deitado aqui no doce Sahara
    Mil milhas para o problema mais próximo
    Eu vejo você dormir, é incrivelmente doce
    Eu vou manter você seguro
    Eu serei seu piloto

    Deitado aqui no doce Sahara
    Mil milhas para o problema mais próximo
    Eu vejo você dormir, é incrivelmente doce
    Eu vou manter você seguro
    Eu serei seu piloto

    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 - The Boy with the Arab Strap // Bande à Part

    5:22

    The Boy with the Arab Strap is the third album from the Scottish indie pop band Belle & Sebastian. The inspiration for the album's name came from the band Arab Strap, who are also from Scotland and briefly toured with Belle & Sebastian. An Arab strap is a sexual device for retaining an erection.
    Arab Strap were reportedly less than pleased with their inclusion in the title of the album. When questioned about it, Arab Strap's leader/singer, Aiden, said They have a sense of humor. Malcolm, the band's instrumentalist, added, Because Arab Strap is quite an interesting name. The words go well together. That's why we chose it as a band name. We're friends with them, but there's a limit to putting someone else's name on an album. They're taking away something from us. He also mentioned that the album had been confused as a collaboration between the bands.

    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

    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.

    Belle & Sebastian - The Same Star

    3:33

    From the EP series How To Solve Our Human Problems (EP 2, out January 19th). Purchase or stream the EPs:









    The Same Star

    Mirror, mirror, on the wall
    I saw another girl's reflection
    Kingdoms rise and kingdoms fall
    But maybe that's just my projection

    I used to love the funny ways
    I thought I understood the real him
    They'd last forever, good old days
    It took another me to perceive him

    If I can do it once, I can do it again
    In orbit round the same star but we fly apart
    Feeling blue, and I'll do it again
    In orbit round the same star til we fall apart

    I don't even see your face
    You evaporated from my city
    Maybe we were friendly once
    I think your overtures were laced with pity

    Now I see another side,
    Now I am immune to his enchantment
    He came in on a winter tide
    He blew away, he took a warmer current

    You can hold me back, you can give me a list of complaints
    You suggest I find somebody for a remedy
    But there's nothing so wrong with me
    You leave the room
    Suddenly the air is clear

    Spirit, spirit, speak to me
    I'm looking for a voice to guide me
    And I can feel your energy
    Reveal yourself if you're beside me

    Reveal every sleight of hand
    And show me what the fates decided
    I made a world on shifting sand
    We came apart, our worlds collided

    If I can do it once, I can do it again
    In orbit round the same star but we fly apart
    Feeling blue, and I'll do it again
    In orbit round the same star til we fall apart

    La Misma Estrella (español)

    Espejito, espejito,
    Vi el reflejo de otra chica
    Los reinos se crean y se caen
    Pero tal vez sea sólo mi punto de vista

    Solía amar las maneras graciosas
    Pensaba que realmente lo entendía
    Que por siempre durarían los buenos viejos tiempos
    Necesité ser otra para percibirlo

    Si lo puedo hacer una vez, lo puedo hacer de nuevo
    Orbitamos la misma estrella pero volamos por separado
    Me siento triste, lo volveré a hacer
    Orbitando la misma estrella hasta desmoronarnos.

    Ni siquiera veo tu rostro
    Desapareciste de mi ciudad
    Quizá alguna vez fuimos cercanos
    Creo que tus propuestas estaban contaminadas con lástima

    Ahora veo desde otra perspectiva,
    Ahora soy inmune a sus encantos
    Llegó en una corriente de invierno
    Se fue volando con una corriente más cálida

    Puedes retenerme, puedes darme una lista de quejas
    Sugieres que encuentre a alguien para sanar
    Pero no hay nada mal conmigo
    Abandonas la habitación
    De repente, el aire es puro

    Espíritu, espíritu, comunícate conmigo
    Busco una voz que me guíe
    Y puedo sentir tu energía
    Manifiéstate si estás a mi lado

    Revela cada juego de manos
    Y muéstrame la decisión del destino
    Creé un mundo sobre arenas movedizas
    Nos separamos, nuestros mundos chocaron

    Si lo puedo hacer una vez, lo puedo hacer de nuevo.
    Orbitamos la misma estrella, pero volamos por separado
    Me siento triste y lo volveré a hacer
    Orbitando la misma estrella hasta desmoronarnos

    A Mesma Estrela (português)

    Espelho, espelho na parede
    Eu vi o reflexo de outra garota
    Os reinos ascendem e os reinos caem
    Mas talvez essa seja apenas a minha projeção

    Eu adorava as maneiras engraçadas
    Eu pensei que entendi o verdadeiro ele
    Eles durariam para sempre, bons velhos tempos
    Precisou de outro eu para perceber a ele

    Se eu puder fazer uma vez, posso fazê-lo novamente
    Em órbita ao redor da mesma estrela, mas voamos para além
    Sentindo-se azul e farei isso de novo
    Em órbita ao redor da mesma estrela até nos desintegrarmos

    Eu nem vejo sua cara
    Você evaporou da minha cidade
    Talvez fôssemos amigáveis uma vez
    Eu acho que suas aberturas foram atadas com pena

    Agora vejo outro lado,
    Agora sou imune a seu encantamento
    Ele entrou numa maré de inverno
    Ele explodiu, ele tomou uma corrente mais quente

    Você pode me segurar de volta, você pode me dar uma lista de queixas
    Você sugere que eu encontre alguém para ser remédio
    Mas não há nada de errado comigo
    Você sai do quarto
    De repente, o ar está limpo

    Espírito, espírito, fale comigo
    Estou procurando uma voz para me guiar
    E eu posso sentir sua energia
    Revela se estás a meu lado

    Revelar cada truque de mão
    E mostre-me o que os destinos decidiram
    Eu fiz um mundo em areia mutante
    Nós nos separamos, nossos mundos colidiram

    Se eu puder fazer uma vez, posso fazê-lo novamente
    Em órbita ao redor da mesma estrela, mas voamos para além
    Sentindo-se azul e farei isso de novo
    Em órbita ao redor da mesma estrela até nos desintegrarmos

    Belle and Sebastian - The Rollercoaster Ride

    6:38

    Album: The Boy with the Arab Strap
    Lyrics:

    Hey people, looking out the window at the city below
    Hey people, looking out the window, full of fun and sorrow
    Hey people, looking out the window at the city below
    Hey people, looking out the window, you'll be gone tomorrow

    The rollercoaster ride
    The rollercoaster ride
    Of all the trouble kept her inside

    Take Judy, with her bow and arrow, she's a mastermind
    Too frumpy for the teenage population of her kind
    Car coat, she has a quilted jacket with a hood if it rains
    Big pockets for the pharmaceuticals she takes to fix her brain

    The rollercoaster ride
    Of all the trouble kept her inside

    A puzzle, for the moment settle down to do it with him
    You're happy cause your cosy and the rain comes rattling in
    It tickles, and it's something that is very good for the skin
    You're waiting for a baby, Baby, watch the idiot running

    The rollercoaster ride
    Of all the trouble kept her inside

    You're hanging from the balcony upon the riverboat glass
    You're watching with your mouth wide open for the top of the class
    She came on with the boys while you were stuck in various poses
    If you were to remove your clothes d'you think the singer would notice?

    The rollercoaster ride
    Of all the trouble kept her inside
