"Write About Love" as written by Sarah Martin, Stuart Murdoch, Richard Colburn, Michael Cooke, Christopher Geddes, Stephen Jackson and Bob Kildea....
I know a spell
That would you make help
Write about love, it could be in any tense, but it must make sense

I know a trick
Forget that you are sick
Write about love, it could be in any form, hand it to me in the morning

I hate my job, I'm working way too much (every day I'm stuck in an office)
At one o'clock, I take my lunch up on the roof
The city's spread below, I'll write about a man
He's intellectual and he's hot, but he understands

The seconds move on (if you watch the clock)
And the sky grows dark (if you're looking up)
But the girls move from thrill to thrill on the tightrope walk (on the tightrope walk)

I hate my job, I'm working way too much (every day I'm stuck in an office)
At one o'clock, I take my lunch up on the roof
The city's spread below, I'll write about a man
He's intellectual and he's hot, but he understands

I know a way (so you know the way)
Get on your skinny knees and pray (maybe not today)
You've got to see the dream through the windows and the trees of your living room (of your living room)
You've got to see the dream through the windows and the trees of your living room

    Lyric CorrectionThis song is really fantastic. Carey Mulligan sounds great. However, I think some of the lyrics listed here are wrong.

    Lyric CorrectionThe second line is "That would make you well".

    Also, it's "I hate my job", not your job.

    And the chorus is "The city's spread below" as opposed right below.

    And it's definitely "I'll write about a man".

    General CommentI love how Belle & Sebastian so cleverly write songs about how life can really be drag. And they do it intelligently, not in a sob-story, over-emotional kind of way. I noticed that theme in this album especially Come On Sister and I'm Not Living in the Real World. So good. Everything about this album is just another reason to love B&S even more.
