Stay Loose  Belle and Sebastian

[Cm]I was choking on a co[Bb]rnflake
You said “[Gm]Have some toast ins[Ab]tead”
[Cm]I was sleeping maybe th[Bb]ree hours
You said “[Gm]You should get to b[Ab]ed”
[Cm]I was waiting at the ch[Bb]urch door\
For the [Gm]minister to sh[Ab]ow
[Cm]I was looking at the n[Bb]ew year
You said “[Gm]Walk before you cr[Ab]awl[Gm]”  [Fm]

[Cm]I was feeling like a [Bb]loser
You said “[Gm]Hey, you’ve still got [Ab]me”
[Cm]I was feeling pretty l[Bb]onely
You said “You [Gm]wanted to be fr[Ab]ee”
[Cm]I was looking for a g[Bb]ood time
You said “L[Gm]et the good times s[Ab]tart”
[Cm]With a quiver of your ey[Bb]elid
You took on s[Gm]omeone else’s [Ab]part

But what about [Eb]me
[Ab]I don’t really s[Eb]ee
[Ab]How things will [Eb]improve
If all you w[Ab]ant is to stay
[Cm]Maybe I’m a little g[Bb]reedy
You said “[Gm]Think before you sp[Ab]eak”
[Cm]Sometimes I’m a little [Bb]seedy
You said “E[Gm]veryone is we[Ab]ak”
[Cm]Now I feel a little be[Bb]tter
Is there s[Gm]omething I can d[Ab]o?
[Cm]But I never heard the a[Bb]nswer
I n[Gm]ever had a c[Ab]lue
But what about [Eb]me
[Ab]I don’t really s[Eb]ee
[Ab]How things will i[Eb]mprove
If all you wa[Ab]nt is to stay
The l[Fm]ights are out
In the h[Gm]ouse tonight
And I cr[Ab]eep around
And I’m c[Eb]reeping to your h[Bb]ead
All you wa[Ab]nted to stay loo[Cm]se.
[Cm]There’s a little echo c[Bb]alling
Like a m[Gm]iner trapped in[Ab]side
[Cm]If I tell her of this m[Bb]oment
She will in[Gm] me doubts conf[Ab]ide
[Cm]And she’s on me like a bl[Bb]anket
Like a s[Gm]talk of wilting gr[Ab]ass
[Cm]I’m not sure about her mot[Bb]ives
I’m not s[Gm]ure about her pa[Ab]st [Gm]   [Fm]
[Cm]But my faith is like a b[Bb]ullet
My bel[Gm]ief is like a b[Ab]olt
[Cm]The only thing that lets [Bb]me sleep at night
A little car[Gm]riage of the s[Ab]oul
[Cm]If it starts a little bl[Bb]eaker
Then the y[Gm]ear may yet be g[Ab]old
[Cm]Happiness is not for ke[Bb]eping
Happ[Gm]iness is not my g[Ab]oal
So what about m[Eb]e
[Ab]I don’t really se[Eb]e
[Ab]How things will im[Eb]prove
If all you [Ab]want is to stay lo[Eb]ose
[Ab]But what about th[Eb]em
[Ab]You play mother h[Eb]en
To a g[Ab]aggle of gangling you[Eb]th
If all you w[Ab]ant is to stay
The l[Fm]ights are out
In the h[Gm]ouse tonight
And I c[Ab]reep around
And I’m cr[Eb]eeping to your h[Bb]ead
All you wa[Ab]nted to stay
[Cm]I was living through the sec[Gm]ond
My c[Ab]omposure was a m[Eb]ess
I was m[Fm]iles from tende[Cm]rness
It was d[Ab]ark outside, the d[Ab]ay it was l[Gm]ying in pi[Bb]eces
[Cm]Everything is flat and d[Gm]reary
I couldn’t c[Ab]are what’s in the ne[Eb]ws
Telev[Fm]ision is the b[Cm]lues
Tele[Ab]vision is hys[Ab]terical la[Gm]ughter of peo[Bb]ple
And I k[Ab]now it could be [Bb]me
I’m always asking for [Cm]more, [Bb]more, m[Ab]ore, m[Gm]ore
I keep ru[Ab]nning round in cir[Eb]cles
I keep lo[Ab]oking for a do[Eb]orway
I’m going to n[Ab]eed two lives
To fo[Ab]llow the pa[Gm]ths I’ve been ta[Bb]king
