Best Friend Lyrics

Best Friend - Belle & Sebastian

Written by:Christopher Thomas Geddes/Stuart Lee Murdoch/Carla Easton/Stephen Thomas Jackson/Sarah Ann Martin/Robert Michael Kildea/Richard William Colburn

Here we are just trying to be flatmates

Here we are just trying to sophisticate

Be an adult trying not to fall in love

Be a human trying not to stand out

Here we are just trying to be neighbors

You in bed me still with the painters

Smoking at the window at the magpies

Trying to work out what's the truth and what's the lie

 

I'm not saying that we will be best friends

But I took you dancing at the weekend

Tell your folks in bed you had to play

I tried to make you feel like the kids are playing pretend

I'm not saying that we can't be running mates

You run too fast for me I try to keep the pace

What I lack in speed I make up for in the way I move my hips

And the way the sun comes out when I move my lips

 

So you won't want to miss

 

All the shapes that can make

 

It's a choice you want to take

 

Here we are just trying to be

Oh here we are just trying not to

Fall in love

 

It's only human not to want to be alone

Here we are just trying to be

Oh here we are just trying not to

Get too close

 

I'm to me

I'll be your lock and fold

Tell me all your dirt

I'll never tell a soul

Tell me over steam and mac n cheese

Hold the tray above your knees

We can listen to the radio

I'm not saying I will kick you d**n right

Stick with me and you'll only end up thinner

There are other ways to feel you up

I can look into your soul

I can feed you all the love

I can save you now

 

Oh and don't let me run

 

I'm digging my way in

 

I just like the game you're playing

 

Here we are just trying to be

Oh here we are just trying not to

Fall in love

It's only human not to want to be alone

Here we are just trying to be

Oh here we are just trying not to

Get too close

 

I'm not saying that we can't be dreamers

Here we are just trying to be neighbors

We can lie awake and watch the sky

Forget the truth forget the lie

For the moment you're my best friend
