​Take Care Of Yourself

This song is by Edwyn Collins and appears on the album Hellbent on Compromise (1990).

You know and I know
Between you and me
We had best not let it show
I'm not being glib about it
But those who can't live without it
Should change their ways
For brighter days

You've got to care of yourself
And do without
You've got to care of yourself
And do without

Cause you know and I know
We'll reap what we sow
We've sown the seeds of doubt

Slipping and sliding
I'm losing my grip
I'd better bite my lip
I find it hard to swallow
When your voice so small and hollow
Rends the air
With quiet despair

You've got to care of yourself
And do without

Cause you know and I know
We'll reap what we sow
We've sown the seeds of doubt

My! Look what the cat dragged in
Painfully thin and soaked to the skin
Better watch out or you'll end up like him
Dazed, crazed and ugly as sin
He thinks it's the summer of 69
When everybody was feeling fine
And revolution was in the air
For all the beautiful people there (Yeah)

Hoping and praying
There's been some mistake
And that it's not too late
Maybe it's not so hopeless
Could be there's still some closeness
After all
However small


You've got to care of yourself
And do without

Cause you know and I know
We'll reap what we sow
We've sown the seeds of doubt

Aren't you the lucky one?
Oh such a plucky one
Aren't you the only one?
Never the lonely one
Aren't you?
Well aren't you?
