Lyrics:
Far off in the distance
I can hear the bells
Beside a church there stands
a girl I knew so well

As I get closer
I can feel a chill
Shes changing her name from Laura
to Sister Isabel

Isabel, can you hear the words I'm saying
Isabel, can you hear me while you're praying

I can still remember
The night she said good-bye
She said wed meet again someday in a castle in the sky
The choir has stopped singing
I no longer hear the bells
She changed her name from Laura to Sister Isabel

Isabel, am I really gonna lose you?
Isabel, does he need you more than I do?

Isabel, am I really gonna lose you?
Isabel, does he need you more than I do?
Isabel (3xs)


Quotes:
Certain songs that we perform in shows, like Sister Isabelle, Dirrty Old Town, or John The Revelator, we have attempted in the studio, but if it ain't listed here then what we have probably ain't that good. It's usually the singer's fault! Man oh man. We could do a boxed set of only botched Sister Isabelle. I think that was first attempted during Teenager Of The Year. We have beat that one into a pulp. Never seem to get a good one, although if I remember correctly the John Peel version with Teenage Fan Club is probably pretty good. Hven't heard it for a while. It sure is hard doing covers. But fun. Even when they're butchered.
