Biography

Belle and Sebastian is a band from Glasgow. Led by guitarist/vocalist Stuart Murdoch, the seven-piece band has an intimate, majestic sound that is equal parts folk-rock and '60s pop. Murdoch has a gift not only for whimsy and surrealism, but also for odd, unsettling lyrical detail which keeps the songs grounded in a tangible reality.

    Lyrics
    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

    Lyrics
    A mile and a half on a bus takes a long time
    The odor of old prison food takes a long time to pass you by
    When you've been inside
    Day upon day of this wandering gets you down
    Nobody gives you a chance or a dollar in this old town

    Lyrics
    Ooh! 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

    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

    Lyrics
    Monday morning wake up knowing that you've got to go to school
    Tell your mum what to expect, she says it's right out of the blue
    Do you went to work in Debenham's, because that's what they expect
    Start in Lingerie, and Doris is your supervisor
    And the head said that you always were a queer one from the start
