VIDEO OF THE WEEK

Belle and Sebastian (ft. Emily Browning) - God Help the Girl

Music video for the title track of Stuart Murdoch’s upcoming musical feature film and album ‘God Help The Girl’. From writer/director Stuart Murdoch (lead singer of beloved indie pop group Belle & Sebastian) comes the most delightfully different musical of the year. Eve (Emily Browning) is a catastrophe—low on self-esteem but high on fantasy, especially when it comes to music. Over the course of one Glasgow summer, she meets two similarly rootless souls: posh Cass (Hannah Murray) and fastidious James (Olly Alexander), and together they decide there’s only one thing to do: form a pop group. USA Release Date: September 2, 2014. UK and Rest of the World Release Date: August 18, 2014.

Lyrics:

There is no way I’m looking for a boyfriend
There is no way I’m looking for a scene
I need to save some dough
I’m a working girl, you know
I’ll fend attention off I keep to myself

I love my room, I’m getting used to sleeping
Some nights I really like to lie awake
I hear the midnight birds
The message in their words
The dawn will touch me in a way a boy could never touch
Their promise never meant so much to me

You have been warned, I’m warned to be contrary
Backward at school, I wrote from right to left
Teacher never cared for me
Preacher said a prayer for me
God help the girl, she needs all the help she can get

I sit for hours just waiting for his phone call
I’ll leave the chocolate hidden in the fridge
I’ll play his messages
Analyze his intonation
Please stop me there, I’m even boring myself

I think of him when I’m doing the dishes
I think of him while looking in the sink
This ain’t no play on words
My love for him is absurd
If he gave me a sign I’d think about it for a week
I’d build it up and then I’d turn him down

You have been warned, I’m warned to be contrary
Backward at school, I wrote from right to left
Teacher never cared for me
Preacher said a prayer for me
God help the girl, she needs all the help she can get
