Belle & Sebastian - We Are The Sleepyheads Lyrics




Tired like the beggar with the cold inside his bones
Looking for the pleasure that he knew was so far gone
So far gone
I took a turn to myself
And I was surprised, cause I saw everyone who ever I had loved
I felt a whole lot better after that

People look at us and they think were doing fine
People look at us cause they see us all the time
All the time
But they never take to us
We've been in this town so long we may as well be dead
So long as people turn their heads
And cross the street whenever we walk on by

Someone told the truth when it really mattered most
The beauty of the moment is the beauty sadly lost
Sadly lost
So I went around to your house
Over tea and gin we talked about the things we read
In Luke and John the things he said
And now it's morning we are the sleepyheads

    I usually never buy music I hear on youtube, but for some reason I just had to have this CD to own. Hard to find anywhere these days on the ground. Ebay to the rescue.

    Tired like the beggar with the cold inside his bones
    Looking for the pleasure that he knew was so far gone
    So far gone
    I took a turn to myself
    And I was surprised, cause I saw everyone who ever I had loved
    I felt a whole lot better after that

    People look at us and they think were doing fine
    People look at us cause they see us all the time
    All the time
    But they never take to us
    We've been in this town so long we may as well be dead
    So long as people turn their heads
    And cross the street whenever we walk on by

    Someone told the truth when it really mattered most
    The beauty of the moment is the beauty sadly lost
    Sadly lost

    And now it's morning we are the sleepyheads

  12. Miguel S

    wow im glad i never got into this trend - the darlings of indiepop before that was a thing. it's like a more palatable field mice (self-indulgent referencing).

  16. Korey Causey

    Do you know how shit this song becomes when it's on your work playlist and you hear it 15 times a day. Belle and Sebastian should be ashamed of themselves for contributing such an annoying song to the work world

    Heyman Heyguys

    Korey Causey at least you are not hearing Celine Dion 10 times a day on your work playlist.

    Brian Jorgensen
