Manchester Orchestra - Do You Really Like Being Alone Lyrics




So I'll dig a hole in my room
From Birmingham and back again for you
In the end they say we'll see the truth
What a shocking beauty we can both abuse

So I folded my hands to a bird
The shadows made you laugh, they made you sunburned
And I stitched my faith into your shirt
To make sure nobody but me was getting hurt

Do you love being cast as the fool
In a movie no one ever pays to sit through
Just calm down it will be over soon
And God I wonder what it is I'd do without you

Do you really like being alone
Do you really like being alone
La da di da da da da

When the lord made me confront my past
We asked each other to explain the mess
Believed with enough good I'd mend
But any good I had was always simply tepid

And I tried hard to sing like they did
With my arms raised in the air, yeah I was praising
You said that when we died it would send
But even baby Jesus knew that I was faking

Do you really like being alone
Goddamn of course you don't
Do you really like being alone
Do you really like being alone

Wouldn't blame you if you went back home
And you got an actual job
And you kissed your wife and your two daughters, like I wished I could
And I think that we'd be free
Oh my God, I think you'd finally feel free

I don't really like being alone
God of course I don't
I don't really like being alone
I don't really like being alone

I think I might just go back home
And get an actual job
Stop selling my soul
To the devil he buys so much merch from us

And I think he'd set us free
Yeah, I think he'd cut the chains
And set you and me free

Do you really like being alone
'Cause I don't really like being alone
Do you really like being alone

Think I might just go back home
Get an actual job
And tell both my redneck neighbors to bring their dogs inside

And I could get some sleep
'Cause I think that all I need
Is a decent night sleep
