BELLE and SEBASTIAN lyrics : "I Took A Long Hard Look"

I took a? long hard look
At the heroes of my youth.
And their antics on the page there on

Can no longer sustain me
Ever since I was a boy
They brought me joy

But the shackles of the way I was
Can no longer contain me


It was exciting
And enlightening
Reverberating through my dreams

Goodbye to reality
And set a course for wayward schemes.


Now I can't sing
I can't feel
I don't know what is real.

I was travelling through the past for years
Tell me what's my destination
Now the past is gone

I don't even have a song
We've not sung before
To a closing door

Tell me what's my situation?

I saw the film,

I lived the book
I got the haircut
That's all it took

But now I know it's going to take
A little more now I'm awake


I took along hard look
Now I'm waiting for the phone to ring
I glance at the inbox

Is there any tantalising mail there in
There was lust in my restless heart
But now I know what true love means

Goodbye to reality
And set sail for dreamsy
