In February 2007 I decided to go “on sabbatical”, to take time out for myself to just be, play, and write. The first line came to me while I was doing the dishes one morning, and I scrambled upstairs to finish it. I don’t remember if I finished the dishes.


What are you doing?
Doin’ nothin
Why do you do it?
I don’t know
What are you thinking?
Thinkin’ somethin
Try’n to decide which way to go

Maybe I’ll be a race-car driver
Build me a spaceship, sail to Mars
But that’d distract me
From doin’ nothin
Feels too fast and looks too far

But take a good look on the other side
Sure looks good on the other side

Look at those people
Doin’ somethin’
What are they doing?
I don’t know
Scrapin’ and scratchin’
All for nothin’
Thinking they’ve got some pl ace to go

And take a good look at the other side
Sure looks good on the other side

Don’t try to tell me I must do something
What would you ask me? I don’t know
I’m happy to see you
Keep on runnin’
But take a deep breath before you go

And take a good look on the other side
Sure looks good on the other side

Dylan Bell Toronto, Ontario

In a word... multifaceted. Toronto-based songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer. From a neo-classical choral opus to an unabashed rock song, I've probably written it... or at least working on it. I'm fortunate enough to make my work my play, touring across North America, Europe, and Asia. Visit me at www.dylanbell.ca ... more
