currently listening to: "get me away from here, i'm dying" by belle & sebastian

this song just moved the fuck out of me upon first listening.

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!
they always reach a sorry ending
they always get it in the 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"

jimmy let me download a whole bunch of smiths and belle & sebastian at his house, and he got it all assembled onto his server and sent them to me tagged and ready, which is absolutely amazing. thank you so much, jimmy.

if anybody should ask i'm going to a seminar
pieces of the moon
sensitive heart, you're doomed from the start
(& etc)

anybody can be just like me, obviously.
not too many can be like you, fortunately.
