Young Fathers – In My View Lyrics

In My View by Young Fathers
Released : 2018

Lay my belly on a woman
Leave a dancer for Delilah
Dagger for the deadly, deadly damned
Fine wine and foie gras

In my view, nothing’s ever given away
I believe to advance that you must pay
In my view love will never come my way
So, when I leave, you’ll be dancing on my grave

I wanna be king until I am
A man is just a man I understand
Has everything gone to plan?
Don’t say it out loud, just let me dance

I know you wanna say you wanna
I never said I was a saint, I was sent again
Sin again and then a sinner
Again, again, again, again
I really wanna take your honour
I’m writing blank checks, I’m a greedy bugger
I’ll take your daughter to feel the thunder
Daddy’s little girl never [?]

In my view, nothing’s ever given away
I believe to advance that you must pay
In my view, love will never come my way
So, when I leave, you’ll be dancing on my grave

Lay my belly on a woman
Leave a dancer for Delilah
Dagger for the deadly, deadly, damned
Fine wine and foie gras

Now torture mixes me
Trust me, even more delicious
I know my resting beat
I’m no longer vicious (In my view)
I know my resting beat
I’m no longer vicious (I believe)
I know my resting beat
Say no more, please baby (In my view)
I know my resting (I believe)
I’m no longer vicious
Say no more, please (I believe)
Just cradle, cradle
I’m no longer vicious (In my view nothing’s ever given no way)
Say no more, please baby
Just cradle, cradle me

In my view, nothing’s ever given away
(Dead, dead, deadly, deadly damned)
I believe to advance that you must pay
(Say no more, please)
In my view, love will never come my way
(I know my resting beat)
So, when I leave, you’ll be dancing on my grave
(I’m no longer vicious)

Trickles down your mouth into​ your hand
I wanna be king until I am
I wanna be king until I am
I wanna be king until I am
Man, oh, man, oh, man, oh, man, oh, man
