Stay Loose

Belle and Sebastian

 CmBb
 I was choking on a cornflake
 GmAb
You said “Have some toast instead”
 CmBb
 I was sleeping maybe three hours
 GmAb
You said “You should get to bed”
 CmBb
 I was waiting at the church door\
 GmAb
For the minister to show
 CmBb
 I was looking at the new year
 GmAbGmFm
You said “Walk before you crawl”   

 CmBb
 I was feeling like a loser
 GmAb
You said “Hey, you've still got me”
 CmBb
 I was feeling pretty lonely
 GmAb
You said “You wanted to be free”
 CmBb
 I was looking for a good time
 GmAb
You said “Let the good times start”
 CmBb
 With a quiver of your eyelid
 GmAb
You took on someone else's part

 Eb
But what about me
 AbEb
 I don't really see
 AbEb
 How things will improve
 Ab
If all you want is to stay

 CmBb
 Maybe I'm a little greedy
 GmAb
You said “Think before you speak”
 CmBb
 Sometimes I'm a little seedy
 GmAb
You said “Everyone is weak”
 CmBb
 Now I feel a little better
 GmAb
Is there something I can do?
 CmBb
 But I never heard the answer
 GmAb
I never had a clue

 Eb
But what about me
 AbEb
 I don't really see
 AbEb
 How things will improve
 Ab
If all you want is to stay
 Fm
The lights are out
 Gm
In the house tonight
 Ab
And I creep around
 EbBb
And I'm creeping to your head
 AbCm
All you wanted to stay loose.

 CmBb
 There's a little echo calling
 GmAb
Like a miner trapped inside
 CmBb
 If I tell her of this moment
 GmAb
She will in me doubts confide
 CmBb
 And she's on me like a blanket
 GmAb
Like a stalk of wilting grass
 CmBb
 I'm not sure about her motives
 GmAbGmFm
I'm not sure about her past     

 CmBb
 But my faith is like a bullet
 GmAb
My belief is like a bolt
 CmBb
 The only thing that lets me sleep at night
 GmAb
A little carriage of the soul
 CmBb
 If it starts a little bleaker
 GmAb
Then the year may yet be gold
 CmBb
 Happiness is not for keeping
 GmAb
Happiness is not my goal

 Eb
So what about me
 AbEb
 I don't really see
 AbEb
 How things will improve
 AbEb
If all you want is to stay loose

 AbEb
 But what about them
 AbEb
 You play mother hen
 AbEb
To a gaggle of gangling youth
 Ab
If all you want is to stay
 Fm
The lights are out
 Gm
In the house tonight
 Ab
And I creep around
 EbBb
And I'm creeping to your head
 Ab
All you wanted to stay

 CmGm
 I was living through the second
 AbEb
My composure was a mess
 FmCm
I was miles from tenderness
 AbAbGmBb
It was dark outside, the day it was lying in pieces

 CmGm
 Everything is flat and dreary
 AbEb
I couldn't care what's in the news
 FmCm
Television is the blues
 AbAbGmBb
Television is hysterical laughter of people

 AbBb
And I know it could be me
 CmBbAbGm
I'm always asking for more, more, more, more

 AbEb
I keep running round in circles
 AbEb
I keep looking for a doorway
 Ab
I'm going to need two lives
 AbGmBb
To follow the paths I've been taking
