    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

    Belle & Sebastian - I Didnt See It Coming

    5:03

    From 2010’s Write About Love.

    Make me dance, I want to surrender
    Your familiar arms, I remember
    We've been going transcontinental
    Got no car, we just take a rental
    But we don't have the money
    (money makes the wheels and the world go round)
    Forget about it, honey
    Make me dance, I want to surrender
    Your familiar arms, I remember
    Everybody's talking about you
    Every word's a whisper without you
    But we don't have the money
    (money makes the wheels and the world go round)
    Forget about it, honey
    Trouble's never far away when you're around
    I didn't see it coming
    I'm just not in the running
    Take me on a train 'cos I'm not flying
    I can see the world from a different side
    Read about us in the morning papers
    When we make it alive
    I didn't see it coming
    I'm just not in the running
    And we don't need a lifetime
    We're following the right line

    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…
