Easy Life – Basics lyrics
[Verse 1]
(Yeah)
Let's go back to basics
Tilt your head towards the sky
See the spaceships
Long before we were stressing over payslips
Mum's were getting facelifts
We were in and out of phases
Through our childhood, shame to waste it
We used to live adjacent
Party in the basement
Used to chill with me and Frank
But now you live with Jason
What's he saying?
Just send him my regards
I really hope you're not too far

[Chorus]
As long as I've got marshmallow clouds above me
No-one in this world ever understood me
We need the universe to be as it should be
As long as I've got marshmallow clouds above me
No-one in this world ever understood me
You don't have to feel it now, just trust me

[Bridge]
Yeah we're good
Yeah we're good
Yeah we're good
Yeah we're good
Yeah we're good

Yeah we could
Yeah we could
Yeah we could
Yeah we could
Yeah we could

[Verse 2]
So many arguments over nothing
I've stopped counting
We made movements so massive
We moved mountains
She was disco, she was bebop
She was soul
She was new-wave
Make a young man feel old
My etiquette and my big dreams
And my attitude, problem
My loose ends and my mistakes
I thought she could solve them
I was spaced out and I was face down
[?] control
She was red hot
Made my pale skin feel cold

[Verse 3]
Say you feel a little blue sometimes
Finding it hard to get up
For a job that you hate
Got your boss on your case
Can't relate
Swear they've not got a clue sometimes
Giving the best parts away
Losing strength by the day
Just hold up, I'm a junction away

[Chorus]
As long as I've got marshmallow clouds above me
No-one in this world ever understood me
We need the universe to be as it should be
As long as I've got marshmallow clouds above me
No-one in this world ever understood me
You don't have to feel it now, just trust me

[Bridge]
Yeah we're good
Yeah we're good
Yeah we're good
Yeah we're good
Yeah we're good

Yeah we could
Yeah we could
Yeah we could
Yeah we could
Yeah we could
