Belle and Sebastian – Do It For Your Country Lyrics

Belle and Sebastian – Do It For Your Country Lyrics

Lying next to you
How could I go wrong?
Lying in your state of glory
Sad to see you go
Miss you, little ho
Sad to reach the end of story

Watch, baby, as you go
If you think the world’s full of people sent to hate you
Then it will be so
‘Cause you make the world
And you make the people in it

Everything you see, feel, experience
Happens in your sloppy soul, girl
The world is just a game
Something made of clay
But you are the great creator

So banish all your fears
Grab it by the ears
Love and other things of beauty reign
Ask not what your country can do for you
Baby, do it for your country

Now you have to go
Leave us all behind
For a life that’s less sedentary
You dream of being a star
But you halfway are
You just have to time your entry

Your freedom and your youth
Flowing through your veins
Desperate that it would elude you
Let me wish you peace
Store it, you may need it
One time when your day is empty

Drink, honey, if it helps you out
With every choice there comes a nagging doubt
Depends where you want to sink your faith
The people that you fall in love with are never what they say

I know you look at me
Lobster in a pot
Songbird in a gilded nightmare
Nothing will hold you
Not even when he begs
To wrap around your legs and hips and

Hey! Give the boy a break
You know what you want
All he wants is to be near you
In between your thighs
Somewhat mesmerised
Never underestimate your spell
