Ease Your Feet in the Sea

This song is by Belle and Sebastian and appears on the album The Boy with the Arab Strap (1998).

Ease your feet off in the sea
My darling, it's the place to be
Take your shoes off, curl your toes
And I will frame this moment in time

Troubles come and troubles go
The trouble that we used to know
Will stay with us till we get old
Will stay with us till somebody decides to go

Decides to go

Soberly, without regret
I make another sandwich
And I fill my face, I know that things have got to you
But what can I do?

Suddenly, without a warning
On a pale blue morning
You decide your time is wearing thin
A conscious choice to let yourself go dangling

It's an emergency
There's no more "wait and see"

Maybe if I shut my eyes
Your trouble will be split between us
People come and people go
You're scouring everybody's face

For small flicker of the truth
To what it is that you are going through
My boy, I left you dry
The signs were clear that you were not going anywhere

Save for a falling down, save for a falling down
Anywhere, anywhere
Save for a falling down, everything's going wrong

Later on, as I walked home
The plough was showing and Orion
I could see the house where you lived
I could see the house where you gave

All your time and sanity
To people, then you waited for
The people to acknowledge you
They spoke in turn but their eyes would pass over you

Over you
Who's seeing you at all?
Who's seeing you at all?
