dress up in you lyrics – belle & sebastian

i’m the singer, i’m the singer in the band
you’re the loser, i won’t dismiss you out of hand
cos you’ve got a beautiful faith
it will take you places

you kept running
you’ve got money, you’ve got fame
every morning i see your picture from the train
now you’re an actress!
so says your résumé
you’re made of card
you couldn’t act your way out of a paper bag

you got lucky, you ain’t talking to me now
little miss plucky
pluck your eyebrows for the crowd
get on the airplane
you give me stomach pain
i wish that you were here
we would have had a lot to talk about

we had a deal there
we nearly signed it with our blood…
an understanding
i thought that you would keep your word
i’m disappointed
i’m aggravated
it’s a fault i have, i know
when things don’t go my way i have to

blow up in the face of my rivals
i swear and i rant, i make quite an arrival
the men are surprised by the language
they act so discreet, they are hypocrites so f*ck them too!

i always loved you
you always had a lot of style
i’d hate to see you on the pile
of ‘nearly-made-it’ s
you’ve got the essence, dear
if i could have a second skin
i’d probably dress up in you

you’re a star now, i am fixing people’s nails
i’m knitting jumpers, i’m working after hours
i’ve got a boyfriend, i’ve got a feeling that he’s seeing someone else
he always had a thing for you as well

blow in the face of my rivals
i swear and i rant, i make quite an arrival
the men are surprised by the language
they act so discreet, they are hypocrites forget them
so f*ck them too
