Mayfly

This song is by Belle and Sebastian and appears on the album If You're Feeling Sinister (1996).

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 till she comes again
You are the one who's making do
I am the one who's privy to
Because you saw him in the park
Because you saw him at the bridges
With the people in the dark

Cana was the start of something big
You were 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
Because you saw him at the celebrations
Standing at the side
He had the moves to save the day
And you would love him anyway

Lovesick, it 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 sent 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 its verses lost in time
And lost in meaning for 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 till she comes again

Mayfly, woken up when skies are clear
I don't mind you, come in here
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
