I'm Waking up to Us Lyrics

by Belle And Sebastian

I need someone to take some joy and something I do
You need a man whos either rich or losing a screw
You know I love you, heres the irony
Youre going to walk away intact

I think you never liked me anyway
You like yourself and you like
Men to kiss your arse
Expensive clothes, please stop me there

I think Im waking up to us, were a disaster
You dont want to know me
Cause you move in circles of the brave
Where art defines their lives

She was the one love of my life, and I let her go
And if I look like death today, then please let her know
I never wanted to do harm to her
I only wanted her to see

The beauty of the world surrounding her
But when she opened up her eyes
Its much too late
Our chance has gone, shes with a guy

Who takes the prize for everything I ever showed her
Digging all the fun because shes older
I fed her with a spoon
I made her mother smile, I helped the kid survive

She was the one love of my life
She showed me the road
I loved her dog, her steady gaze
The chapter is closed

I always wanted all the best for her
The best thing was to stay away
She grew up and she left the rest of us
And now the understandings gone

I havent changed, how could I?
Im pretty much the same person
I cannot keep the anger hidden anymore
But lucky for you, you are not around
My anger turns to pity and to love
The season has arrived, the season has arrived
