"Stop, Look and Listen" as written by and Chris Geddes Richard Colburn....
I finally gave myself the time to see you
I finally gave myself the time to see you
I finally gave myself the time to see you for a while
If only we could see past the veneer we'd see another side of you

Simone said she would think about not seeing me
Simone said she would think about not seeing me
Simone said she would think about not seeing me for a while
I hung around with her for forty days and forty nights, it was a wilderness

If only you would stop, look and listen
If only you would stop, look and listen
If only you would stop, look and listen you'd be fine
But being deaf and being blind just seems to be the way you spend your time

Being alone, it's not a problem when I think of you
Being alone, it's not a problem when I think of you
Being alone, it's not a problem when I think of you
Your words are true and all I do is dream

Spent summer in the city of my childhood
Spent summer in the city of my childhood
Spent summer in the city of my childhood for old times
But there's no going back for me, the faces had all changed I was a stranger

He made the same mistake 'til he got wiser
He made the same mistake 'til he got wiser
By then it was too late and he despised her, what a crime
If he was cruel to be kind, he would've saved the trouble and the time

Being alone, it's not a problem when I think of you
Being alone, it's not a problem when I think of you
Being alone, it's not a problem when I think of you
Your words are true and all I do
Think of you, your words are true and all I do
Think of you, your words are true and all I do is dream

I live alone the silence it can make you
I live alone the silence it can take you
I live alone the silence it can break you after a while
Not long ago I made a deal, the ghosts around the house all seem to like me

My life is falling down I am surrounded
My life is falling down I am confounded
My life is falling down I am dumbfounded, what a mess
I lay back silent as a cat and let you work your mysteries of healing

Being alone, it's not a problem when I think of you
Being alone, it's not a problem when I think of you
Being alone, it's not a problem when I think of you
Your words are true and all I do
Think of you, your words are true and all I do
Think of you, your words are true and all I do is dream

    General CommentI guess this song is one of the lesser known Belle & Sebastian ones, but it's great nonetheless! It's one of the true Stevie and Stuart duets. I find it very reminiscent of The Beatles during the Let It Be period, and Bob Dylan during Nashville Skyline. Definitely a mixture of those two, for me, which is fantastic because there are no two bands/artists I have more respect for (and, I suspect, Belle & Sebastian feel much the same way).

    More than any other B&S song, it really sounds like a jam, especially the last few minutes (wow, Stevie is just a star on the guitar, isn't he?).

    Anyway, just wanted to open the floor to the discussions of this song because I really love it.

    General CommentThis is story of my life. I'm living alone (going to school) in the town I was born in, a total mess, completely alone. I'm in love with a friend back home, and anything he says to me instantly brightens may day. But he's too much of a moron and a whore to realize he and I are like perfect together. Hmmm, I sure am creepy.
