God Help the Girl

God Help the Girl is a musical project by Stuart Murdoch, leader of the Scottish indie group Belle and Sebastian, featuring a group of female vocalists, including Catherine Ireton, with Belle and Sebastian as the accompanying band. The project has released a self-titled album, an EP and several singles. Central to the project is a musical film, featuring songs from the project's recorded releases. The film was released in 2014.

I'm all alone, this is a holiday
Some bloody holiday
My friends have gone away
They're of the temporary sort, I think
I will be better without
As long as you let me out

To taste the air beside the river
I pick the soundtrack with immaculate care
Such a lot rests upon it
My life upon a song
You don't know how much I need
Musician, please take heed

I thought I might just write a letter
Anything to stay away
From books and lessons today
Besides it's part of my induction
Into the literate world
I am a literate girl

I string the words together softly
I lay my love upon you with each line
A gift of improvising
Removes me from revising
I made a daisy chain from
Phrase, verse, and punctuation

I'll kick this mood off with a change of scene
I bought a leotard and go to the gym
I couldn't get away with wearing it last summer
But I lost a lot of weight
I think it's down to leaving meat out of my diet as a rule
I won't buy it 'cause it's cruel

And if the nighttime threatens me with pain
I will give in to lust
I will do what I must
I've got a number of a girl I know
Who gets hallucinogens from a pair of hooligans

I'll take a dose, I don't mind trying
She lets me stay there while I leave the ground
Old episodes of Minder
I snuggle up beside her
Think that I'll stay til morning
She's got me started yawning
