Get me away from here, I'm dying

Oh! Get me away from here I'm dying
Play me a song to set me free
Nobody writes them like they used to
So it may as well be me
Here on my own now after hours
Here on my own now on a bus
Think of it this way
You could either be successful or be us
With our winning smiles, and us
With our catchy tunes, and us
Now we're photogenic
You know, we don't stand a chance

Oh, I'll settle down with some old story
About a boy who's just like me
Thought there was love in everything and everyone
You're so naive!
After a while they always get it
They always reach a sorry end
Still it was worth it as I turned the pages solemnly, and then
With a winning smile, the boy
With naivety succeeds
At the final moment, I cried
I always cry at endings

Oh, that wasn't what I meant to say at all
From where I'm sitting, rain
Washing against the lonely tenement
Has set my mind to wander
Into the windows of my lovers
They never know unless I write
"This is no declaration, I just thought I'd let you know goodbye"
Said the hero in the story
"It is mightier than swords
I could kill you sure
But I could only make you cry with these words"

Oh, get me away, I'm dying...

Belle and Sebastian - Get Me Away from Here, I'm Dying
If you're feeling sinister (Jeepster, 1996)

De manière assez surprenante, je suis dans une micro-période Belle and Sebastian. L'album "If you're feeling sinister" bien sûr, plus toutes les bonnes chansons extraites des autres (comme "I fought in War", par exemple) et enfin (surtout?) les trois premiers EPs.

Si j'en suis là, c'est que je prépare un article croisé sur Belle and Sebastian et Jean-Luc Godard.
à suivre bientôt !

  1. Ha... tu es quand même vivant!

    Moi je crois que c'est d'écouter Tadaloora, le nouvel album de Phantom Buffalo qui t'a donné envie de re-écouter B&S, non?

  2. Merci Rakou, je ne connaissais pas l'album de 'I fought in a war".

    A cette mirco-liste, j'ajouterais "Like Dylan in the movies", "Another sunny day" et "I want the world to stop" (du dernier album)
