Im Waking Up To Us Belle and Sebastian
I need someone to take some joy in something I d[E]o [Am] [E]
You need a man who's either rich, or losing a sc[C#m]rew
You know I love you here's the i[B]rony:
You're going to walk away intact,
I think you never loved me a[B]nyway
You love yourself and you love men
to kiss your ars[B]e, expensive clo[E]thes, please stop me the[B]re
I think I'm [E]waking [A]up to [B]us, we're a disaster
[E]You don't [A]want to [B]know me cause you move in
[E]Circles [A]of the [B]brave, where art defines their [C#m]lives.
She was the [E]one love [A]of my l[B]ife, and I let her g[E]o [Am] [E]
And if I [E]look like d[A]eath tod[B]ay, then please let her[C#m] know
I never wanted any [B]harm for her,
A(open) C#m B
I only wanted her to see the beauty of the world surrounding her
But when she opened up her eyes
It's much too [B]late, our chance is [E]gone, she's with a [B]guy
Who takes the [E]prize for [A]every[B]thing I ever showed her
[E]Digging [A]all the [B]fun because she's older
I [E]fed her [A]with a [B]spoon, I made her mother sm[C#m]ile,
I helped the kid survive.
Bridge: E D A C x2
She was the one love of my life, she showed me the r[E]oad [Am] [E]
I loved her dog, her steady gaze, the chapter is clo[C#m]sed.
B A(open) C#m
I only wanted all the best for her, the best thing was to stay away
She grew up and she left the [B]rest of us
And now the understanding's gone
I haven't c[B]hanged, how could I? [E] I'm pretty [B]much the same person
[E]I cannot keep[B] the anger [E]hidden a[A]nym[B]ore, but lucky for you
[E]You are [A]not ar[B]ound, my anger turns to [E]pity [A]and to [B]love,
The season has [C#m]arrived, The season has arrived.
Another great tune from an outstanding group of musicians,
brilliant in its simplicity and heart.
Remember, 'Contrahit orator, variant in carmine vates'.
