"The Breeze Whispered Your Name" as written by and Isobel Campbell....
This is a story
That happened long ago
I never thought love would ever find me
Only infernal pain and woe
Weeping and wailing
"Saw gold and could not drink"
Somnambulance eased the sea of questions
A sea of trouble brings and then

The breeze whispered your name
Long enough to hear it
Trees whispered the same
What I must do is follow you

Into the water and all the way to sea
Little fishes and eels and frogs dive after
So careless and so free
Must I abide now
Against the glassy stream
To wake or to sleep, remain forever
The strangest lily seen

And then the breeze whispered your name
Long enough to hear it
Trees whispered the same
What I must do is follow you

    General CommentIsobel is an angel. However why this angel couldn't carry on with St. Murdoch is still my query. I downed this album a couple of days ago and I was surprised to find her style so different from Belle and Sebastian's, yet they match so well, like a boy and girl, telling the same story in a correspondent way. I was deeply moved. My own story seems much mediocre. Things go wrong due to my fault, and there is no turning back. I wish I could write songs as well.
