Belle & Sebastien - I Could Be Dreaming

Artist: Belle & Sebastien

Song: I Could Be Dreaming

Album: Tigermilk (1996)


Belle & Sebastian know your anguish, certainly, and in turn offer you just the right recipe for sublime transcendental cravings. Listen to "I Could Be Dreaming" for instance...it has perhaps the most complex production of any song on the album, with instruments, mixings, and overdubs weaving a textured backdrop that fits seamlessly with the suggestive lyrics presented in a rambling, stream of conscious fashion so as to evoke our inner most desires -- those sames ones strangled by daily inhibitions, only to awaken during our reveries.


another song by B&S




I could have ordinary people chasing me from town to town
Mission impossible
They've got a spy for every blink of your eye

I’m feeling hunted
I’m feeling haunted
Theyve got a knife for every time you take the same train into work
A familys like a loaded gun
You point it in the wrong direction someones going to get killed

If you had such a dream
Would you get up and do the things youve been dreaming

Is he your husband?
Or just your boyfriend?
Is he the moron whos been beating you and keeping you inside?
Ive never done this kind of thing
But if I kill him now, whos going to miss him?

I went up to the school
I went up castlehill
For every step there is a local boy who wants to be a hero
Do you want to do it now?
Outside the butchers with a knife and a bike chain.
