Belle And Sebastian – When You’re Not With Me Lyrics

When You’re Not With Me Lyrics – Belle And Sebastian

It’s not a one way conversation
But we speak a different language
Nothing’s gonna change this situation
What is done is just the damage

Won’t you stay around?
I’ll be out in the open

‘Cause you’re the light, I’m your shadow
We’re not lovers, we’re not fighters
You go on ahead, I will follow
Catch me in a beam, it’s getting brighter

Won’t you stay around?
I’ll be lost in the open

Where do you run when nobody is calling?
Who’s going to taste my tears when they’re falling?
I don’t know how much longer you can stay around
Stay in my line of sight

I feel you when you’re not with me
I can move my lips but they don’t make a sound
When you’re not with me
Try to find my way back to solid ground
When you’re not with me
Talking to the walls
But they don’t hear a sound
When you’re not with me

Come back to where it began
Holding on, holding on

So are we losers, are we winning?
You and me, we grew up fast together
Is this an end or a beginning?
You’re my shelter from the weather

Walls are falling down and
The windows are broken
Say I’ll see you ’round when I’m lost in the open

Where do you run when nobody is calling?
Who’s gonna taste my tears when they’re falling?
I wanna hear you breathing in the dark night
Stay in my line of sight

I see you when you’re not with me
I can move my lips but they don’t make a sound
When you’re not with me
Try to find my way back to solid ground
When you’re not with me
Talking to the walls but they can’t hear a sound
When you’re not with me

Would you allow me to try
Stop the clock, stop the clock?
And make a moment between
Tick and tock, tick and tock

Would you allow me to try
Stop the clock, stop the clock?
And make a moment between
Tick and tock, tick and tock

I’ve got nothing when you’re not with me
I’m in trouble when you’re not with me
I’ve got nothing when you’re not with me
