I Want The World To Stop

"I want the world to stop (I want the world to stop)

Give me the morning (give me the understanding)

I want the world to stop (I want the world to stop)

Give me the morning, give me the afternoon

The night, the night

 

Let me step out of my shell

I'm wrapped in sheets of milky winter disorder

Let me feel the air again, the talk of friends

The mind of someone my equal

 

I want the world to stop…

 

Tinseltown has followed me from Tinseltown to

Grey adorable city by the docks

Girls will walk in moving air the sun hangs low the girls don’t care

As they paint themselves at dusk.

 

I want the world to stop…

 

Towns’ and cities’ populations up and grow

The workers move to the suburbs

In between I watch and go

I run along side rush hour traffic a prayer for every car

 

I want the world to stop…

 

I want to write a message to you

Everyday at 10 o clock in the evening

Yellow pearl my city is

This is your art this is your Balzac your Brookside and your Bach"

[Belle & Sebastian - I Want The World To Stop]
