Belle And Sebastian – Mayfly lyrics

Lovesick on a sunny afternoon,
You are tired of staying in,
You are waiting for a sign.
Mayfly, woken up when skies are clear,
I don't mind you coming near,
Keep me company til she comes again.

You are the one who's making do,
I am the one who's privy to,
Cause you saw him in the park,
Cause you saw him at the bridges
With the people in the dark.

Cana was the start of something big,
You are there in the beginning,
You were there to see him play.
Mayfly, woken up when skies are blue,
I don't mind the sight of you,
Keep me company till she comes again.

You are the one who's making do,
I am the one who's privy to,
Cause you saw him at the celebration
Standing at the side,
He had the moves to save the day,
But you would love him anyway.

Lovesick, you came back upon yourself,
You are the one left on the shelf,
You are incapable of playing the fool.
Longing, so what's different today?
You send the boy and girl away,
You are concerned with matters lofty.

But puzzled so it makes you sick,
Your diary's looking like the Bible
With it's verses lost in time,
Lost in meaning to the people who surround you
It's a crying shame,
You know it's a crying shame,
You know it's a crying shame...

Mayfly, woken up when skies are blue,
I don't mind the sight of you,
Keep me company til she comes again.
Mayfly, woken up when skies are clear,
I don't mind you coming near,
Keep me company till she comes again,
La la la la,
She comes again,
La la la la,
She comes again,
La la la la la...
