Well I don’t know what I’ve found But I know what’s just begun
2.
Oh here they come Those feelings that I've dreamed of now for so long You stop my heart and make my head spin around I never thought I'd see the day or hear the sound Of your voice calling my name Oh there they go Those feelings I'd held onto now for so long They take my breath and keep my feet on the ground I was always waiting for the day to come around That I'd be holding your hand It's always been you and me It's always been me and you It's always been you and me It's always been
3.
Baby how did we go wrong? You treat me so bad that I can’t stay They tell me to be strong But baby where does your heart belong? You know I need you a bit more every day You’re the only one that I adore They tell me keep holding on But baby where does your heart belong? And you know I’m never gonna leave you Or mistreat you Even though I should be out the door Baby believe me No deceiving I don’t wanna end up all alone
4.
Stop that boy he stole my heart I caught him red-handed Stop that boy he stole my heart I caught him red-handed I just couldn’t see What he did to me And now it’s too late And my heart is full of hate Stop that boy he stole my heart I caught him red-handed Stop that boy he stole my heart I caught him red-handed When there are three It’s not meant to be And now it’s too late And my heart is full of hate And I simply didn’t see What a fool he was making of me I didn’t believe What everybody told me, everybody said you’d better Stop that boy he stole my heart I caught him red-handed Stop that boy he stole my heart I caught him red-handed I just couldn’t see What he did to me And now it’s too late And my heart is full of hate
5.
That boy is mine That boy is mine That boy is mine That boy is mine Well I never ever met a boy like that I ain’t ever gonna let him go That boy is mine That boy is mine That boy is mine That boy is mine Well I never ever kissed a boy like that I ain’t ever gonna give him up That boy is mine That boy is mine That boy is mine That boy is mine Well I never ever kissed a boy like that I ain’t ever gonna let him go That boy is mine That boy is mine That boy is mine That boy is mine You’d better leave town Stop messing around
6.
As I gaze into the night Scattered all on the sky The explosions of the stars As you gaze into mine The same burning flame Ignites behind your eyes Though you wanted it to be It's not the same for me I will never be in love You're left breathless but Oh my heart just beats the same The same, the same
7.
The grass is always greener on the other side There’s always someone better for you But why waste your time with someone you can’t have? Be glad with what you do Jimmy was a boy who lived the wrong side of town He was always sweet to me But when it came to other girls I didn’t stand a chance So Jimmy was history The grass is always greener on the other side There’s always someone better for you But why waste your time with someone you can’t have? Be glad with what you do Annie was happily married When along came a good looking Joe So she packed up her things and said come with me But he wasn’t good to go – no!
8.
Some day my heart will beat again Some day I’ll learn to live again They tell me time it can heal and I should let you go But til then I need to live without you here in my arms Some day my heart will beat again One day I’ll turn and walk away They tell me time it can heal and I should let you go But til then I need to live without you here in my arms Every day I look around There’s nothing here for me But darling when I see your face My heart beat-beats again They tell me time it can heal and I should let you go But til then I need to live without you here in my arms

I Should Do 02:05
I don’t wanna listen to my heart any more I really don’t wanna listen to my heart this time I know I should do but I can’t stay away from you I know I should do but I can’t stay away Please I wanna listen to my heart, I’m in love I really really wanna listen to my heart this time I know I should do but I can’t stay away from you I know I should do but I can’t stay away I’ve been walking for days but I can’t get you out my mind I’ve been walking for days but I can’t get you out my mind I know I should do but I can’t stay away from you Yeah I know I should do but I can’t stay away from you
10.
Why do you have to break my heart again? Why do you have to say goodbye at the end? Suddenly he’s leaving town again I was doing fine, oh I could pretend Happens all the time Just when I think he’s mine And things are going fine Oh no Why do you have to break my heart again? Why do you have to say those things to me? Just when I thought that I was moving on Boy you just had to come along
11.
Would you believe it oh when I say How much you mean to be at this moment And words can never truly explain Just how I’m feeling when you’re around Oh baby won’t you stay with me tonight And say that you are never going to leave? Cos the night it is so lonely when you’re gone Oh baby won’t you stay with me tonight? Forever wondering How you feel for me And if I am the only one in your world Oh baby won’t you stay with me tonight And say that you are never going to leave? Cos the night it is so lonely on my own Oh baby won’t you stay with me tonight?
12.
You make me hear music inside my head You make me hear music inside my head Colours all around you even on the darkest day So add some music to my day You make me hear music inside my head You make me hear music inside my head Stars shine all around you even on the brightest day So add some music to my day I could go blind tomorrow, I simply wouldn’t care I’d just listen to the sounds you make me feel You make me hear music inside my head You make me hear music inside my head You make me so happy I don’t need to cry any more

It seemed like it would be impossible to improve on “Loveless Unbeliever”, but they did it. The album went halfway around the world, showed up on hundreds of “best of” lists of the year, was mentioned by and included in some of the most prestigious press about music and culture in general. Up to four singles came out of their compositions. They toured all around the planet and were a hit wherever they went. And now their new album is here and they have left us totally speechless. “Reading Too Much Into Things Like Everything” is a better version of THE SCHOOL. The arrangements are, if it’s even possible, even more delicate, more elegant; the emotions make your hair stand smoothly on end and the vitality and freshness are just as strong as they were on their first single.

Because Liz and her crew are capable of writing songs like “Where Does Your Heart Belong”, which would stand out on its own strength on a compilation of the best songs by THE RONETTES or THE SUPREMES. The album opens with a song like “What’s Just Begun”, which Brian Wilson and Burt Bacharach would unanimously applaud. Stuart Murdoch is thinking that he has to go back to doing songs “It’s Not The Same” and “Never Thought I’d See The Day”. The RAMONES can’t stop dancing to the rhythm of “Why Do You Have To Break My Heart Again”. Jack Nietzche and ABBA are hugging while they remember the first time they fell in love, as they listen to “Baby Won’t You Stay With Me Tonight”. And all of this without forgetting for one second that we’re listening to Liz and her crew. Because that’s how the new THE SCHOOL album is: well-assimilated classics that are loaded into a collection of impeccable songs; we almost dare to say inimitable.

But the most important thing about this album is that it manages to reach an almost inexplicable level of magical – a quality that only the great albums have – which transcends the utterly perfect songs and is led by the whim of emotions. This magic could be broken by just a slight alteration in the order of the songs, or some small out-of-place arrangement. Which is why we can do nothing but praise the work of Dave Wrench (BRITISH SEA POWER, Euros Childs, BAT FOR LASHES, Beth Orton, James Yorkston, FANFARLO, CARIBOU, EVERYTHING EVERYTHING, HERMAN DÜNE). But everything is there, moving us from song to song, from the dreaminess that sets off the previously mentioned “What’s Just Begun”, to the energy and vitality that the entire album gives off every second. There are little snips of bitterness like “It’s Not The Same”, there’s that melancholic goodbye that melts into the fade-out of “Baby Won’t You Stay With Me Tonight”. And we can’t forget that happy ending, “You Make Me Hear Music”, which is even dreamier than the album starts of as, full of hope and beauty, that only someone in love can make: You make the music in my head play.

We know it’s hard to explain, which is why the only thing we can do is encourage you to listen to this marvellous album, and hope that you feel the same way we do. Thanks, Liz. Thanks, THE SCHOOL.
