i’m waking up to us lyrics – belle & sebastian

i need someone to take some joy and something i do
you need a man who’s either rich or losing a screw
you know i love you, here’s the irony
you’re going to walk away intact

i think you never liked me anyway
you like yourself and you like
men to kiss your *rs*
expensive clothes, please stop me there

i think i’m waking up to us, we’re a disaster
you don’t 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
it’s much too late
our chance has gone, she’s with a guy

who takes the prize for everything i ever showed her
digging all the fun because she’s 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 understanding’s gone

i haven’t changed, how could i?
i’m 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
