Belle and Sebastian – If They’re Shooting At You Lyrics

If They’re Shooting At You Lyrics By Belle and Sebastian

So I’d said to you “I’m not free”
I got a mountain falling down on me
I got sickness and I’ve got doubts
Oh, the people wanna scream and shout
I’m so tired, I’m always on my knee
And I’m cold, it’s always January
In this house and on these streets
It’s so grey, I can’t take it
What happened to the life I knew?
Swept away (Where did you go?)

So I said to you “I’m busy”
I’ve got jobs to do that would make you dizzy
And I’m juggling all my plates
Living far below my estimate
People are hard for me, I’m always failing
In my family life, I’m always trailing
Come to me, you said “Leave your home
They can’t kill you in my head”
But if they try, don’t take fright
If they’re shooting at you, kid, you must be
Doing something right
(Right, right, right, right, right
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh)

You’re the one, it’s for a bit of peace
A nice warm house and for my family
To take me back because you know I miss them
Miss my boys, I miss their mother, I’ll kiss them
But instead I’m running out of time
Out of air, I fear I must be dying
Come to me, you said “Leave your pain
They can’t kill you in my head”
You’re my son, you’re my love
Gonna catch you gently now you are with me
I got you now (Now, now, now)
I got you now (Now, now, now)
I got you now (Now, now, now)
I got you now (Now, now, now)
(I got you now)
