When she says she loves me my soul feels warm When she says she needs me I'm where I belong People want to know why she's got this hold It's in her eyes and the way that she smiles It's in her words and her funny style And when we kiss and start to play It feels love is meant to be this way We start to dance and she looks in my eyes We're having fun and it makes my heart smile She's not just mine she's part of me I have no choice it's how love's meant to be He knows me so well like nobody could Our love started shaky but now it's grown good People just can't see what he sees in me It's in her eyes and the way that she smiles It's in her words and her funny style And when we kiss and start to play It feels love is meant to be this way We start to dance and she looks in my eyes We're having fun and it makes my heart smile She's not just mine she's part of me I have no choice it's how love's meant to be It's in her eyes

First time I looked at you I looked at you and then I knew I knew what I had to do  I had to stick to you like glue Because you're so fine, fine You're so fine You are so fine And when I look into your eyes I see the colour of the skies I got your picture on my wall I got your picture ten foot tall You're so fine, fine You're so fine F. I. N. fine I could see you were pretty But how could know you'd be so kind You're so fine, fine You're so fine You are so fine You're so fine

Mailbag so heavy And feet covered in sores I walk muddy paths and no paths at all But I walk with nature She's a good friend to me And I'll start to praise her As soon as I'm free Three letters for Arton and one for Defu Twenty miles home and then I'll through But there's no rest for the wicked And there'll be none for me I'll start my real work And in heaven I'll be I'll build my own cathedral Towering up to the sky I can hear them all laughing And wondering why... I'm just a humble postman But following God's master plan I'll build him a cathedral Build it the best that I can For more than three decades I've built everyday Staircases and towers Stone, wire and clay And when I'm finished, finished quite soon I will start working on building my own tomb

Even the most out-of-it people have to know that “BMX Bandits Forever” is one of the best albums in Duglas T Stewart’s 30 year career and that “It’s In Her Eyes” is one of his best songs. The duet between Duglas and Chloe Philip evokes sunny, lively, fun images that could perfectly illustrate a musical starring Dick Van Dyke. That and so much more is why this song is the group’s new single and also their new video.

But more than just the title track, this new digital single also includes two previously unreleased songs. This is proof of Duglas’s current state of grace. “You’re So Fine” is a song by Alex Chilton that has never been released before. Duglas heard it for the first time in the early 90s in a rehearsal space, in a live recording Chilton made with TEENAGE FANCLUB. Giving a studio format to this incredible song with Stuart Kidd and Jamie Gash is one of the greatest tributes to Alex Chilton imaginable.

“Ferdinand’s Cathedral” is a song that imagines the life of the artist (and mailman) Ferdinand Cheval. As Duglas himself says about the creation of this song: “My friend Jowe Head suggested I write a song about an artist and I chose Cheval. Every day, Cheval would walk kilometers and kilometers, delivering mail, and then he would go home to work on the incredible structure that he was building in his garden – Le Palais Ideal. So I took a long walk, as if I was Cheval, and I came back with the lyrics and melody that came into my head while I was walking”. So, he called DR COSMO’S TAPE LAB (which is to say, Joe Kane (THE RAGIOPHONIC TUCK SHOP), Stuart Kidd (THE WELLGREEN) and his friend Norman Blake (TEENAGE FANCLUB), and put together this marchin’ band to give a cinematographic touch to this curious story.
