Belle & Sebastian - Seymour Stein Lyrics

Seymour Stein- I've been lonely
I caught a glimpse of someones face
It was mine and I'd been crying
Half a world away
Ticket for a plane
Record company man
I won't be coming to dinner

My thoughts are far away
I'm working on that day
North Country girl
1 think she's going to stay

Promises of fame, promises of fortune
LA to New York- San Francisco back to Boston
Has he ever seen Dundee?
Won't he hire a limousine?
Seymour bring her back to me


I heard dinner went well
You liked Chris's jacket
He reminded you of Johnny
Before he went Electronic

Seymour Stein- sorry I missed you
Have a nice flight home
It's a good day for flying

    maybe its because of the way it tells a story, or maybe its just because, but out of all the belle and seb songs, this is the one that reminds me of dear jens lekman the most.

    the part

    "He reminded you of Johnny
    Before he went electronic"

    the way stuart sings that part, the way that song comes together, i hear a lot of this in jens's music. of course, it has a unique beautiful jens touch all over it.

    Canciones tan delicadas y bonitas no se suelen repetir mucho y menos en estos tiempos. La belleza de este tema para mi gusto lo convierte en uno de los mas guapos de la Banda siempre en mi humilde opinion. Gracias Sebastián.

    Fact. This song is about the late Katy Dove, who went to Dundee art school, and was from North of Scotland. Gone but not forgotten.
