i don’t love anyone lyrics – belle & sebastian

i don’t love anyone
you’re not listening
you’re playing with something
you’re playing with yourself

i don’t love anyone
you’re not listening even now
you’re playing with something
you’re playing with someone else

and if there’s one thing that i learned when i was a child
it’s to take a hiding, yeah

i don’t love anything
not even christmas
especially not that
i don’t love anything

no, i don’t love anyone
maybe my sister
maybe my baby brother too, yeah
i don’t love anyone

but if there’s one thing that i learned when i was still a child
it’s to take a hiding, yeah
yeah if there’s one thing that i learned when i was still at school
it’s to be alone

but if there’s one thing that i learned when i was still a child
it’s to take a hiding, yeah

out in the street today
the kids are playing, having fun
well i p*ss them by i’m not a kid, no
i don’t love anyone

i met a man today
he told me something pretty strange
there’s always somebody saying something
he said, “the world is as soft as lace.”

but i don’t love anyone
