Jane S. Piddy
Rodriguez Lyrics


Now you sit there thinking feeling insecure
The mocking court gesture claims there is no proven cure
Go back to your chamber, your eyes upon the wall
'Cause you got no one to listen, you got no one to call

And you think I'm curious

Drifting, drowning in a purple sea of doubt
You wanna hear she loves you
But the words don't fit the mouth
You're a loser, a rebel, a cause without

But don't think me callous

Dancing Rosemary, disappearing sister Ruth
It's just your yellow appetite
That has you choking on the truth
You gave in, you gave out, outlived your dreams of youth

And I can't get jealous

So go on, you'll continue with your nose so open wide
Knocking on that door that says hurry come inside
But don't bother to buy insurance 'cos you've already died

And you can't be serious

I saw my reflection in my father's final tears
The wind was slowly melting, San Francisco disappears
Acid heads, unmade beds, and you Woodward world queers

I know you're lonely
I know you're lonely
I know you're lonely

Thanks for your time
And you can thank me for mine
And after that's said
Forget it

Bag it, man

Now you sit there thinking, feeling insecure
The mocking court jester claims there is no proven cure
Go back to your chamber, your eyes upon the wall
'Cause you got no one to listen, you got no one to call

[Chorus]
And you think I'm curious

[Verse 2]
Drifting, drowning in a purple sea of doubt
You wanna hear she loves you
But the words don't fit the mouth
You're a loser, a rebel, a cause, without

[Chorus]
But don't think me callous

[Verse 3]
Dancing Rosemary, disappearing sister Ruth
It's just your yellow appetite
That has you choking on the truth
You gave in, you gave out, outlive your dreams of youth

[Chorus]
And I can't get jealous


[Verse 4]
So go on, you'll continue with your nose so open wide
Knocking on the door that says "Hurry, come inside"
But don't bother to buy insurance
'Cause you've already died

[Chorus]
And you can't be serious

[Verse 5]
I saw my reflection in my father's final tears
The wind was slowly melting, San Francisco disappears
Acid heads, unmade beds, and you Woodward world queers
I know you're lonely

[Chorus]
I know you're lonely
I know you're lonely
I know you're lonely
I know you're lonely

[Spoken]
Thanks for your time
And you can thank me for mine
And after that's said
Forget it
Bag it, man
(Okay)

His words cut straight to the bone. His voice cuts straight to the heart.

I only discovered him because of the movie, but now his music is part of me and it always makes me stronger when I listen to it.

This was the first Rodriguez song I heard, about 15 years ago, when a mate played it on guitar for me. I was blown away and, after listening to his albums, tried unsuccessfully to find more info on the guy. I was amazed today to find out about his doco. The line "I saw my reflection, in my father's final tears" almost brought me to tears the first time I heard it and it still has that effect. Im in Australia, btw.

When "I know you're lonely" starts repeating, I can't stop my eyes from watering.

Felix Delgado

"I know you're lonely..." Wow that last line just haunts you in the most heartfelt and genuine way. Rodriguez is definitely the urban poet.

Sebastián Castañeda

That line make me feel like he really meant it. The way he sings over and over "I know you´re lonely..." and also the sound goes fade out. This is definitely my favourite song of Sixto Rodriguez. What a legend!

it gives me a lump in my throat, so sad 😔

"I saw my reflection in my father's finally tears, the wind was slowly melting- San Francisco disappears" that part hits me every time
