Let It Slip 03:10
An apology for today, an apology for a lifetime My loveless unbeliever, he’s better than the rest And if you ever leave me, would you go straight to her? Or is it so easy living on your, living on your own without me baby Your first was a masterpiece, your second was just genius But third seemed like mirrors of what had gone before And if you ever leave me, would you go straight to her? Or is it so easy living on your, living on your own without me baby (Slip, let it slip) Oo just say it (Slip, let it slip) I just wanna know (Slip, let it slip) if you really love her – come on, come on oo boy tell me (Slip, let it slip) Oo just say it (Slip, let it slip) I just wanna know (Slip, let it slip) if you really love her – come on, come on oo boy tell me And if you ever leave me, would you go straight to her? Or is it so easy living on your, living on your own without me baby (Slip, let it slip) Oo just say it (Slip, let it slip) I just wanna know (Slip, let it slip) if you really love her – come on, come on oo boy tell me (Slip, let it slip) Oo just say it (Slip, let it slip) I just wanna know (Slip, let it slip) if you really love her – come on, come on oo boy tell me

Is he really coming home? Cross my fingers and my toes Is he really coming back, coming back for me? Cos I've been waiting oh-so long And he's still the only one Is he really coming back, coming back for me? Oh well it's been such a long time Don't you think so baby? You know it's gonna be a good year Don't you think so baby?

Valentine 02:21
Have you ever wondered, baby, how life could be? Spend some time in some far off places Spend some time with me Get out of the hole you’re in And come on out and see So won’t you tell me that you’ll think about it I really need to hear about it You know she doesn’t understand you baby She’s never gonna let you be So won’t you tell me that you’ll think about it I really need to hear about it You know she doesn’t understand you baby She’s never gonna let you be her valentine
4.
Once upon a time I thought everything would turn out fine, just like lines in books Now I see I’m caught, caught up in a tangled web All the things you said I bought, like a fool I’d shout it loud, “I don’t care what they say” and now it’s clear that all of it was make believe Now and then I think, now and then I think too much about you in my sleep, about you in my sleep And when the dreams have all come back and settled down And the stupid nightmares hang around With the visions of the one you’re with now I know I tried to get you out my broken mind And to leave the past we have behind But it’s no use wishing now for things like that, I want you back Well I really truly tried in the way you’d want me to, and never do you harm I see it couldn’t last cos of what I said to you And you knew it all along, you couldn’t have just said to me “I don’t care about it”, no you Couldn’t say “Hey girl just leave it all behind” Well now and then I think, now and then I think too much about you in my sleep, about you in my sleep And when the dreams have all come back and settled down And the stupid nightmares hang around With the visions of the one you’re with now I know I tried to get you out my broken mind And to leave the past we have behind But it’s no use wishing now for things like that, I want you back
5.
Is It True? 02:41
The boy I knew before would never have done that The boy I knew before would always treat me right So I can't believe what they've started saying about you Is it true what they say? Cos I don't wanna be alone Is it true what they say? Cos I don't wanna be alone The boy I knew before brought flowers every day The boy I knew before would never ever stray So I can't believe what they're whispering about you Is it true what they say? Cos I don't wanna be alone Is it true what they say? Cos I don't wanna be alone
6.
I, I love everything Almost everything about you, I do And I, I'd do anything Almost anything just to hold you, it's true And if you'd hold my hand And let me in your life I know That you would be the only one It wouldn't be the worst idea Oh and I, I'd do anything Almost anything just to hold you, it's true I'd do anything I, I love everything Almost everything about you, I do I love everything
7.
I can't understand the reason why you knock-a-knock upon my door I can't understand the reason why you wanna wanna see me more You can't pretend It's happening again I've no sympathy It's happening again
8.
I tried, but it wasn't enough Really tried, but it just wasn't enough And now he's with somebody new But I still hear him call my name He's the one who left me, yeah He's the one who left me, yeah He broke my heart and now he's back But I just haven't the time For the one who left me He's the one who left me, yeah He's the one who left me, yeah He broke my heart and I almost died But I just haven't the time For the one who left me Well he said that he would always be true And he's never let me go How could I have ever been so foolish back then, yeah Well he said that he would always stay And he'd never ever leave But when I got home one day all his things were gone Gone gone gone gone
9.
Hoping and praying and wishing That maybe he is thinking and dreaming of me I don't think that I can tell him so That I don't wanna ever let him go, oh no no It breaks my heart to see him It breaks my heart to see him alone Every time that he walks by (alone) He's the kind of boy that looks real shy, oh my my It breaks my heart to see him It breaks my heart, and so I'm Hoping and praying and wishing That maybe he is thinking and dreaming of me And one day I can Hold him and kiss him and squeeze him And tell him that I'm thinking and dreaming of him Maybe I should run away Settle down in some old sunny town far far away Cos I don't wanna make a fool Out of me for the third time (fifth time) Seventh time (eighth time)
10.
Something says you’re reading all the thoughts in my mind But I can’t tell It’s not about the way you look at me as a mess Cos I don’t mind The summer’s here and there’s nothing you can do Say you’ll come out and you’ll love it Something says you think you’re better off elsewhere But I don’t care It makes me feel like tearing you away from inside To where it’s at The summer’s here and there’s nothing you can do Say you’ll come out, we’ll go some place, some place new Summer’s here and there’s nothing you can do Say you’ll come out and you’ll love it
11.
Shoulder 03:33
I try to ignore you and not to adore you And shout from the skies that I wanna just hold you But I feel afraid that you’ll think I’m just foolish And laugh til the tears start to roll down our faces But will you give me a shoulder to lean on? And will you give me a shoulder to lean on? Cos I can’t keep up my head with just two I try to convince you she’s not that essential It’s just cos you want undivided attention So I grow impatient to know how you’re feeling I won’t be content til you show me you mean it But will you give me a shoulder to lean on? And will you give me a shoulder to lean on? Cos I can’t keep up my head with just two I try to ignore you and not to adore you And shout from the skies that I wanna just hold you But will you give me a shoulder to lean on? And will you give me a shoulder to lean on? Cos I can’t keep up my head with just two
12.
I don’t wanna have to hang around This town no more in this place again Everybody thinks they’re having fun Getting wrecked up and making wrecked up friends All I wanna do is hang around with you, if you want me to All I wanna do is hang around with you, let’s go home I don’t wanna have to work the week In boredom we can just carry on Watching people we know falling down Like drunken clowns and come unstuck undone All I wanna do is hang around with you, if you want me to All I wanna do is hang around with you, let’s go home All I wanna do is hang around with you, if you want me to All I wanna do is hang around with you, is hang around with you I wanna be with you, let’s go home
13.
You’ve really got me this time It’s too late to leave And neither of us wants to go home But as we’re here let’s face the situation Let me explain, I don’t believe in love Tonight there’s no-one else above us It’s just you and me And all the idiots hanging around Don’t have a clue what they’re trying to prove now I soon realise I don’t believe in love until we dance Well I, I think you’d better stop there You hold my hand It makes me wanna cry Let’s take a vow Don’t underestimate it We both know it’s true, we don’t believe in love And there’s nothing you can do about it It’s unconditional, it’s unforgivable There’s nothing you can do to stop it Not anymore Well I, I think you’d better stop there You hold my hand It makes me wanna cry Let’s take a vow Don’t underestimate it We both know it’s true, we don’t believe in love But you’ve gotta admit It was as good as it gets But don’t give yourself away I don’t need anyone, no no no no But you’ve gotta admit It was as good as it gets But don’t give yourself away I don’t need anyone, no no no no
14.
Ooh, Can you feel it? Ooh When you kiss kiss kizza me And I kiss kiss kizza you Show me you care One more time, we can overspend it No-one else can show me like you You know that it’s more than having a good time Say that you’re mine Like you said oh when we first met It’s looking pretty good to me We’ve got something more than just having a good time Ooh, Can you feel it? Ooh When you kiss kiss kizza me And I kiss kiss kizza you
15.
Tell Me 02:48
I knew something wasn't right boy When you last kissed me goodnight boy And you turned around so quickly Like your lips would never miss me And you never called the next day Nor the next to say you're ok When I saw you with your friends out You were so cold and left me distant Don't disappear Don't disappear Tell me, are we through? Tell me, are you still dreaming of me? Are you saving all your kisses up for somebody new? This is the time to make up your mind what to do

"25th ELEFANT RECORDS ANNIVERSARY" COLLECTION 008

Continuing with our planned re-releases in honor of Elefant Record’s 25th anniversary, this time we have the debut album of Wales’ THE SCHOOL, whose “Loveless Unbeliever” will be re-released as a 500-copy limited-edition vinyl, changing the red color of the original for green, both for the album cover as well as the vinyl color. Another coveted out-of-print album from Elefant is coming back into circulation in limited edition.

In that not-so-far-away 2010, THE SCHOOL were already one of the most promising new groups. With two magnificent singles like “All I Wanna Do” and “Let It Slip” in 2008, they made fans of groups like THE PIPETTES, CAMERA OBSCURA, and LUCKY SOUL focus on them, and the arrival of their first full-length was anxiously awaited. And when the album arrived in stores, it confirmed what those singles promised: ultra-melodic songs, agile and deliciously pop arrangements, chu-chu-ruchus and para-papas, prodigious wind instruments, and heavy echoes of the girl-groups of the sixties that we love so much. With the production work of the still totally essential Ian Catt (SAINT ETIENNE, TREMBLING BLUE STARS, THE FIELD MICE, SHAMPOO, THE BOO RADLEYS…), the group from Cardiff give us songs like “Valentine”, “Is He Really Coming Home?”, “I Want You Back” and “Hoping And Praying”, which we were already saying back then were unquestionably going to become an irresistible part of an unforgettable repertoire.

What’s more, with this limited re-release, two extra songs are included: “Tell Me” (which was included on the compilation album “Space Escapade (Aventura Espacial) Unit 1 - Destination: Pluto Sector 68”) and “Can You Feel It?” (B-side of the “Hoping And Praying” single, which was released after the album).

Maybe enough time hasn’t passed yet for us to realize how great “Loveless Unbeliever” really is, an album that made it half-way around the world, that was included on hundreds of best-of lists of the year, and that was mentioned and collected by some of the most prestigious media and personalities in the music world and in the cultural world in general. Listening to it again definitely comforts and stretches the echoes of its memory, where its songs continue to grow, day by day.
