If you find yourself caught in love, by Belle & Sebastian


If you were born in a very catholic provincial town and you don't find it funny you might just run away as fast as you can. If you get far enough you might feel a bit out of place, as your reminiscent nun school years will chase you like furies --for an unknown sin. If you decide to move to the capital try not to have a lover who has a reputation for being lecherous. He might be outrageously beautiful, that I have to admit, but... his fantastic body and his cover girl face will cost you a future break up and quite an amount of money -- psychoanalisis isn't a free service yet. But listen, if you fall in love with the boy of your dreams and he falls in love with you, do not freak out. You'll find a thousand ways to sabotage this love. And many ways to be unhappy.
Breath deeply and accept happiness as your destiny. Don't flirt with silly ideas or people. Oh, those people, they are mostly wrong about everything. They'll tell you he's an idiot, they'll tell you he doesn't deserve to be with a girl like you. Don't believe that crap. Run away from whatever you want, but don't you ever run away from yourslef. If you find yourself caught in love... say YES. But if you don't listen to the voices then my friend you'll soon run out of choices...

SUCH A BIG GREAT POST!!!!

I just love it. Needless to say the song is equally great.

I know what it's like. Well, I'm not a catholic,and I'm a boy,so growing up in a very calvinist family living in a very catholic country gave me an everlasting idea of alienation. I love catholic english people because I understand that alienation.

Silly people or silly ideas are always there to destroy a perfect love relationship, it seems sadly familiar for me. Fourtunately the university has some good psychoanalists helping for free.
