    Oh this song - it's got everything - cynicism, desire, despair, hopeless hope. Soundtrack to the days before my wedding and saying goodbye to childish things... a sparkly glass darkly

    There's this author Robert Louis Stevenson who started writing poems at an early age because he was ill with tuberculosis and bedridden most of the time, and there's a special magic in those poems because of that, and I think I can sense the same in Stuart's writing.

    @ralfsu: The new documentary Pitchfork came out with last week (it is very well made and absolutely worth watching if you are a fan of this album or Sinister at all) sheds a bit of light on the meaning of this song. It is almost autobiographic of Stuart Murdoch who had been bedridden for a couple of years before he started Belle & Sebastian. As he was reintegrating himself into society he'd go on bus rides around town just for the hell of it. He credits his recovery from the illness to divine intervention and he started to visit church weekly. Giving himself to providence. The whole thing carries a feeling of general aimlessness to me that's trying to be filled with religion. I do like that interpretation about the man who is being pushed into relationships finally getting a break cause his siblings have taken the spotlight for a while. But of course, this didn't happen. It's a dream and I think the narrator longs for being able to stay out of the spotlight for a while.

    It's a hard song to figure out. I think one SongMeanings comment came the closest to decyphering it - it's about a young man who cannot love anyone while everyone around him, particularly his family, keeps pushing him into getting into a relationship or getting married, and when his brother confesses he's gay "it takes the heat off him for a while". He finds love in God and is left all by himself, leading him to "wait tables for Marks & Spencer's" and "riding on city buses".

    riding on city buses for a hobby is sad [2] i'm always returning back to this song, every year, every summer, every july. it's haunting me throughout life, and always remindind of itself at my loneliest hours. and, wonderfully, it always helps. brilliant and vital to me.(2)
