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

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

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 hands”

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 (know I miss)
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
Got you now (now, now, now)
Got you now (now, now, now)
I got you now (now, now, now)
I got you now (now, now, now)
I got you now
