Noah And The Whale - Just Me Before We Met Lyrics




Looking through the photos you find in my drawer
Laughing so hard you're rolling around on the floor
At all the bad haircuts and smoking cigarettes
The lust-less romantic trying hard to impress

Well that's just me, before we met
Well that's just me, before we met

Putting down the photos you look up at me
Enjoying the thought of the person I used to be
The things I was proud of
The things I regret
Some things I remember
Some things I forget

Well that's just me, before we met
Well that's just me, before we met

Well I've always had a wild imagination
And a see through heart
Which I know can be a wild combination
Like a flame forms from a spark

But don't be shy
Be brave little champion
It's better to live than to hide

Well that's just me, before we met
Well that's just me, before we met

Well don't be shy, be brave little champion
(That's just me, before we met)
But don't be shy, be brave little champion
(That's just me, before we met)

Well don't be shy, be brave little champion
(That's just me, before we met)
But don't be shy, be brave little champion
(That's just me, before we met)

Well that's just me, before we met
Well that's just me, before we met

    This song is awesome!

  2. Alec Klymshyn

    Thanks Noah and the Whale :)

  3. Caroline x

    Anyone else picture this song about a father and son/daughter?

  4. Ray Turvey

    love it

  5. Emmet D

    just try and simplistic D Em C G and put a capo on any fret and my your own acoustic version :))!!

  6. Emmet D

    i love this song!

  7. Nix

    if anyone could come up with guitar chords for this I would love them forever!

  8. Ninjavitus

    I think he meant that his parents called him "Champion". Like how some daughters are called "Princess" by their parents. I don't think he meant that his actual name was Champion.

  9. Elliot Parkhouse

    hey James, be brave little Champion ;) (notice how i used a capital C)

  10. adamadamadisadis

    1.40 clicksound :D

  11. Katie Hughes

    Really love this song! Makes my day :)

  12. Dave Sharley

    Such a unique sound. Love it!

  13. James Field

    Of course. Because I'm totally going to use my real name as my youtube account id, as opposed to a common and catchy alias, for the sole reason of appeasing readers of a comment I posted a year ago. Lol. You obviously don't believe me. W/e. My name is my name, and I can't change it no matter how much I may want to at times. Those that know me can attest to this.

    It's not that uncommon a name, and either you go with what I say or don't. Same applies to all things youtube, I guess. Cheers.

  14. jamie brady

    i thought they were saying be brave litle chiken

  15. vaporeonwave

    Dat viola.

  16. tom9987

    i thought it was a viola? when they play it live it is :i

  17. James Field

    Yeah, man. It had to do with a life or death situation leading up to my birth and a brassy doctor goading my father. The name's a bit depressing, given my lack of outstanding talent in sports and other such popular subjects, but I'm thankful all the same, I guess.

    six eyes

    I don;t get it, what's depressing about "James Field?"

  18. typoded

    wait that's your actual name?

  19. vaporeonwave

    Dat cello.

  20. Laura Krouse

    This song totally makes my day.

  21. Cattle MacMillan

  22. Georgia Price

  24. JM4LAJF

  25. caraszmatic

    Hmmm, well considering how Charlie wrote an entire album about how she ripped his heart out, I don't think that's going to happen.

  26. adrico r

  27. Rebecca Chau

  38. isabel rose

    It's better to live than to hide.

  39. Reggie from The Bill

    @krimicfre your a number 1 loser, get a life.

  40. Katie Reeves

    shit xD i meant natw*

  41. Katie Reeves

    pop shit? lolololoollllllll. learn your notw, bud.

  42. cincygurl

    This is TOTALLY a Jim and Pam song. Pam's first time seeing Jim's room she finds his yearbook and says he was "such a dork!" Sorry, random Office thought here :)

  43. mimiscuel

    @iGalv77 You do realise their biggest song was a pop sensation? A song that was released in 2007, one year after they formed, you want them to go back to their pop roots? Their second album is a far departure from pop. Put it on repeat and continue being narrow-minded.

  44. Kristof Bamps

    in all my life, I can't imagine having heard a song that's as perfectas this one.

    thank you Noah and The Whale, for giving me the courage to be brave.

  45. LFCEOIN

    love it

  46. tweedledeexo

    i lovelovelove this song!

  47. James Field

    My parents named me Champion. I must say, this song has an awkward little place in my heart right now.

  48. Hannah Rae Sibert

    this song makes me so happy :)

  49. Sam Arnett

    Yeah of course i can :)
