about

Second single taken from "Let's get out of this country", the record that confirms CAMERA OBSCURA as one of the most important bands of the moment. The sweetness in Tracyanne Campbell appeals to all kinds of crowds, and the Glasgow band have achieved on this third album a timeless sound of their own, which sounds classic and makes you dream with moments you haven't lived. What else can you ask from a good pop song?

"Let's get out of this country" is the title track on the third album, and is also the main song on this single. A sunny, classic pop song which, as the rest of the album, was recorded in Sweden under the production of Jari Haapalainen (producer of such gems as THE CONCRETES or Ed Harcourt). Along with this song, the CD-single features two new tracks: "Lemon juice and paper cuts", evocative mid-tempo, lead by piano and organ, and "Return to send her", with a country-style guitar that is the perfect counterpoint to Tracyanne's vocal melody.

On the vinyl edition, the B-side is the version the band's done of Sheena Easton's "Modern girl", originally to be included on the CD compilation that comes along with the summer issue of Q Magazine (where many current artists cover songs from the 80s to celebrate the mag's 20th anniversary).

Track Name: Let's Get Out Of This Country
Let’s get out of this country
I’ll admit I am bored with me
I drowned my sorrows and slept around
When not in body at least in mind
We’ll find a cathedral city
You can convince me I am pretty

We’ll pick berries and recline
Let’s hit the road dear friend of mine
Wave goodbye to our thankless jobs
We’ll drive for miles maybe never turn off
We’ll find a cathedral city you can be handsome I’ll be pretty

What does this city have to offer me?
Everyone else thinks it’s the bee’s knees
What does this city have to offer me?
I just can’t see
I just can’t see

Let’s get out of this country
I have been so unhappy
Smell the Jasmine my head was turned
I feel like getting confessional
We’ll find a cathedral city you can convince me I am pretty

What does this city have to offer me?
Everyone else thinks it’s the bee’s knees
What does this city have to offer me?
I just can’t see
I just can’t see
Track Name: Lemon Juice And Paper Cuts
You're young with the time to afford yourself a few fashion mistakes
You were way out of line when you told that boy of your mission
Make or break a few hearts
He's the one who keeps busy and he runs with all the bands
Little does he know they think of him a lesser man
They see a lesser man

But if you see him
Tell him I'll meet him
On the edge of town
The edge of town
When the lights go down

I got my hair cut today it would have really amused you
We're young and we can be cruel because we choose to
Lemon juice and paper cuts go like me and you
You had a bash at being my friend
It didn't suit you

But if you see him
Tell him I'll meet him
On the edge of town
The edge of town
When the lights go down
Track Name: Return To Send Her
Don't disturb my bed is what I should have said
When you kissed me my head started to sway
I took your picture
You bought me some literature
Honey you make my day

I don't want to take advantage or do you any damage
I'm not sure I can manage to stay away

We have been tender
Don't return to send her
The love that was coming your way
I will defend you my friend
I won't quietly walk away.

I don't want to take advantage or do you any damage
I'm not sure I can manage to stay away

Don't be downhearted by this thing we started
I guess that's what I'm trying to say
I will defend you my friend
I won't quietly walk away
Track Name: Modern Girl
He wakes and says hello, turns on the breakfast show
She fixes coffee while he takes a shower
Hey that was great, he said, I wish we could stay in bed
But I got to be at work in less than an hour
She manages a smile as he walks out the door
She's a modern girl who's been though this movie before

She don't build her world 'round no single man
But she's gettin' by, doin' what she can
She is free to be, what she wants to be
'N all what she wants to be, is a modern girl
Na na na na na, na na na na na, na na na na na, she's a modern girl

It looks like rain again, she takes a train again
She's on her way again through London town
Where she keeps a tangerine, flicks through a magazine
Until it's time to leave her dreams on the underground
She walks to the office like everyone else
An independent lady, takin' care of herself

She don't build her world 'round no single man
But she's gettin' by, doin' what she can
She is free to be, what she wants to be
'N all what she wants to be, is a modern girl
Na na na na na, na na na na na, na na na na na, she's a modern girl

She's been dreaming 'bout it all day long
As soon as she gets home, it's him on the telephone
He asks her to dinner, she says I'm not free
Tonight I'm going to stay at home and watch my TV

I don't build my world 'round no single man
But I'm gettin' by, doin' what I can
I am free to be, what I want to be
'N all what I want to be, is a modern girl

Na na na na na, na na na na na, na na na na na, she's a modern girl
Na na na na na, na na na na na, na na na na na, she's a modern girl
