Belle and Sebastian - I'm Waking up to Us,
the title track of their late 2001 release:

						E  Am  E
I need someone to take some joy in something I do

						C#m
You need a man who's either rich, or losing a screw

				B
You know I love you here's the irony:

A(open)				C#m
You're going to walk away intact,

			    B
I think you never loved me anyway

A(open)				E
You love yourself and you love men

		B		E			B
to kiss your arse, expensive clothes, please stop me there

	    E      A     B
I think I'm waking up to us, we're a disaster

E         A       B
You don't want to know me cause you move in

E       A      B			      C#m
Circles of the brave, where art defines their lives.

	    E 	     A      B			E  Am  E
She was the one love of my life, and I let her go

	 E	    A       B			   C#m
And if I look like death today, then please let her know

		   B
I never wanted any harm for her,

A(open)		     C#m                              B
I only wanted her to see the beauty of the world surrounding her

A(open)                    E
But when she opened up her eyes

	      B			  E		     B
It's much too late, our chance is gone, she's with a guy

	      E         A    B
Who takes the prize for everything I ever showed her

E       A       B
Digging all the fun because she's older

  E       A      B                          C#m
I fed her with a spoon, I made her mother smile,


I helped the kid survive.

Bridge: E D A C x2

						    E   Am E
She was the one love of my life, she showed me the road

						    C#m
I loved her dog, her steady gaze, the chapter is closed.

		      B            A(open)			C#m
I only wanted all the best for her, the best thing was to stay away

			     B
She grew up and she left the rest of us

A(open)				E
And now the understanding's gone

	   B			E	    B
I haven't changed, how could I?  I'm pretty much the same person

E	     B          E       A  B
I cannot keep the anger hidden anymore, but lucky for you

E       A     B			      E    A      B
You are not around, my anger turns to pity and to love,

               C#m
The season has arrived, The season has arrived.

Another great tune from an outstanding group of musicians,
brilliant in its simplicity and heart.
Remember, 'Contrahit orator, variant in carmine vates'.

R. T. Devitt.

The A(open) should be F#m.

yeah
i also think the A(open) should be F#m and the Am is really A.
and more, in the final of "i helped a kid survive" the C#m changes to C#
