The State Im In

Belle and Sebastian

 I was surprised, i was happy for a day in 1975     

 i was puzzled by a dream, it stayed with me all day in 1995      

 my brother had confessed that he was gay

it took the heat off me for a while   

 he stood up with a sailor friend

and made it known upon my sisters wedding day   


Chorus ("they dont seem to mind"...go to end of G#m, then chorus):

 I gave myself to sin

and i've been there and back again

i gave myself to providence the state i am in
