about

Les Bicyclettes de Belsize London, UK

Picture the scene …if Tom Bell, Olivia Hussey, David Barry, Leonard Whiting, Tom Courtenay, Arthur Lowe, Barry Evans and Judy Geeson were all in a bedsit together, sipping wine and idly chatting, maybe this is what they'd listen to ? ?

Oh, and of course, Jacques Tati …

Charlie Darling - songs, production

'Jacques Tati Sur Le Velo' cover art by Justine Lecouffe

Track Name: Unsure
Unsure of what’s mine …
where did it all go right
Unsure of who’s line …
I’m counting the days and nights

What are you thinking of …
who do you take me for
Making up for lost time …
picking myself off the floor

Unsure when bells chime …
give me a warning sign
Unsure of who’s lying …
I can’t tell who’s wrong and who’s right

What are you thinking of …
who do you take me for
Making up for lost time …
picking myself off the floor

A child has grown and learned to cry
It’s been hard
The child in me didn’t learn to fly
It’s so hard …

What are you thinking of …
who do you take me for
Making up for lost time …
picking myself off the floor

What are you thinking of …
who do you take me for
Making up for lost time …
picking myself off the floor
Track Name: The Diary of an Indie Kid (with Helen Love)
Andy …..
kick off your sandals
It’s scandalous …..
that I’m making this rhyme

Cowboys and indie girls and plastic indelible sounds
Mod guys and dolly mixtures … vinyl goes around and around

Andy …..
kick off your sandals
It’s scandalous …..
that I’m making this rhyme

Sometimes …..
The Lemonheads’ ‘sunshine’
They were just friends of mine …..
Andy, where is the crime?

Northern Soul girls, rock and roll boys …
how does it feel to be loved
Beauty junkies, spiral scratches …
Saturday looks good

Andy …..
kick off your sandals
It’s scandalous …..
that I’m making this rhyme

Sometimes …..
The Lemonheads’ ‘sunshine’
They were just friends of mine …..
Andy, where is the crime?
Track Name: Impossible
Impossible

Wishing wells, and carousels
Won’t find my way back home
Warning signs, morning blinds
Heart as cold as stone

You told me,
how to live my life
How I tried,
I couldn’t say goodbye
It’s impossible
It’s impossible

Calling cards … colliding stars
Leave me in the cold
Do not signs … cross my mind
Stories left untold

You told me,
how to live my life
How I tried,
I couldn’t say goodbye
It’s impossible
It’s impossible

Something’s happening in my heart
Something everyone should see
My tee-shirt beats so hard it might rip apart
It should be everyone’s to feel

But that’s impossible
It’s impossible
It’s impossible
It’s impossible
Track Name: The Bicycle Thieves
The Bicycle Thieves

The bicycle thieves are coming into town
The bicycle thieves are coming …
and they want you around
They can’t hurt you … or desert you …
they just want your love
They won’t fool you … push or pull you …
they just want to steal your heart
And ride away … before you turn …
and realise
They’ve been alone so long
La la la … la la

The bicycle thieves are riding into view
The bicycle thieves are riding
They’re looking out for you
They can’t catch you … or distract you …
they just want your life
They won’t cheer you, nothing to fear as …
they just want to steal your bike
And ride away … before you turn …
and realise
They’ve been alone so long
La la la … la la
