Help Youself

This song is by Tindersticks and appears on the album The Waiting Room (2016).

Got no charisma? Got no escape?
Can’t feel the loving, just a distaste?
Well there are tigers and there are fawns
You decide yourself which side you’re on
And you just help yourself
You just help yourself

Can’t find the stature? Can’t find the speed?
Got no books to stand on that might give you that little peep?
Got lazy swimmers? Feeling dead in the sac?
Got a woman who is ticking and moaning behind your back?
Well you just help yourself
Take what you can
Make yourself a man

Like a tease, you got a little smile
Got that iddy-biddy feeling that you got more going on inside
‘Got no money? Got no style?
Don’t waste your time, y’gotta life to find, s‘gonna leave you behind
Well you just help yourself
Take what you can
Make yourself a man

Can’t see the reason? Can’t see the light?
Got no books to read on your shelf that’s gonna give you some of that insight?
If I could show you, I surely would
But all the gods I’ve known baby are made out of flesh and blood
Got no love, got not style
Well I can get up maybe I keep you here all night
Got no one? Got no escape?
Got to keep by yourself
Well you just help yourself
Take what you can
Make yourself a man

I can't say that I like it
I can't say that I love it
Can't say not been the greatest breaking down from under
Can't play the bond, can't play the guitar
Gonna sing and stand over there some here
And leave you hanging out the bar
My time is here, my time is up
My time is sure and it is sure
As it always was
Well there are tigers and there are fawns
You decide yourself which side you’re on
