Needle in the Hay
Elliott Smith Lyrics


Your hand on his arm
The hay stack charm around your neck
Strung out and thin
Calling some friend trying to cash some check

He's acting dumb
That's what you've come to expect
Needle in the hay
Needle in the hay

Needle in the hay
Needle in the hay
He's wearing yr clothes
Head down to toes a reaction to you

You say you know what he did
But you idiot kid
You don't have a clue
Sometimes they just get caught in the eye

You're pulling him through
Needle in the hay
Needle in the hay
Needle in the hay

Needle in the hay
Now on the bus
Nearly touching this dirty retreat
Falling out 6th and Powell a dead sweat in my teeth

Gonna walk walk walk
Four more blocks plus one in my break
Down downstairs to the man
He's gonna make it all ok

I can't beat myself
I can't beat myself
And I don't want to talk
I'm taking the cure so I can be quiet

Whenever I want
So leave me alone
You ought to be proud that I'm getting good marks
Needle in the hay

Needle in the hay
Needle in the hay
Needle in the hay

It was only the 4th time i had worked in the field . The locals started looting . They started shooting.

We crashed into a hut.

He said go , he said run. I heard 30 rounds go off. I never got to say thank you, i never got to hug his girls, disavowed and thrown out like garbage.

No one cares riding the horse into babylon- so many now.

More and more and more and more always more

Your hand on his arm
The hay stack charm around your neck
Strung out and thin
Calling some friend trying to cash some check

He's acting dumb
That's what you've come to expect
Needle in the hay
Needle in the hay

Needle in the hay
Needle in the hay

Head down to toes a reaction to you

You say you know what he did
But you idiot kid
You don't have a clue
Sometimes they just get caught in the eye

You're pulling him through
Needle in the hay
Needle in the hay
Needle in the hay

Needle in the hay
Now on the bus
Nearly touching this dirty retreat
Falling out 6th and Powell a dead sweat in my teeth

Gonna walk walk walk
Four more blocks plus one in my break
Down downstairs to the man
He's gonna make it all ok

I can't beat myself
I can't beat myself
And I don't want to talk
I'm taking the cure so I can be quiet

Whenever I want
So leave me alone
You ought to be proud that I'm getting good marks
Needle in the hay

Needle in the hay

Needle in the hay
Needle in the hay

Now on the bus
Nearly touching this sturdy retreat
Falling out 6th and Powell a dead sweat in my teeth
Gonna walk walk walk
Four more blocks plus the one in my brain
Down downstairs to the man
He's gonna make it all OK

I can't be myself
I can't be myself
And I don't want to talk
I'm taking the cure so I can be quiet
Wherever I want
So leave me alone
You ought to be proud that I'm getting good marks

La dulzura

[Verse 1]
Your hand on his arm
Haystack charm around your neck
Strung out and thin
Calling some friend, trying to cash some check
He's acting dumb
That's what you've come to expect

[Chorus]
Needle in the hay
Needle in the hay
Needle in the hay
Needle in the hay

[Verse 2]
He's wearing your clothes
Head down to toes a reaction to you
You say you know what he did
But you idiot kid
You don't have a clue
Sometimes they just get caught in the eye
You're pulling him through

[Chorus]
Needle in the hay
Needle in the hay
Needle in the hay
Needle in the hay

[Verse 3]
Now on the bus
Nearly touching this dirty retreat
Falling out
6th and Powell, a dead sweat in my teeth
Gonna walk, walk, walk
Four more blocks plus the one in my brain
Down downstairs to the man
He's gonna make it all okay
I can't be myself
I can't be myself and I don't want to talk
I'm taking the cure so I can be quiet wherever I want
So leave me alone
You ought to be proud that I'm getting good marks

[Chorus]
Needle in the hay
Needle in the hay
Needle in the hay
Needle in the hay

jameson jansen

Real shit man. Rip nick rip chyna rip the countless homies I've lost that I've met through treatment as well. Fuck this disease. I hope I can beat this shit. Some days I think I will others it feels like it'll be a forever thing.

SithSpit Danikan

@Christine Cannibal I'm so sorry, dude...
I hate this shit... Sometimes no one can pull pull us through the eye. I'm sorry you lost your lover to this horrific fucking illness. I just hope something similar doesn't happen to me with my love, because i know she couldn't live with knowing that i was gone.
I'll always miss the ones that have went before me, i always will.
Rest easy, dude.

It was only the 4th time i had worked in the field . The locals started looting . They started shooting.

We crashed into a hut.

He said go , he said run. I heard 30 rounds go off. I never got to say thank you, i never got to hug his girls, disavowed and thrown out like garbage.

No one cares riding the horse into babylon- so many now.

More and more and more and more always more

Shout out to everyone that put the needle down, to the ones preparing their next fix, and lastly to the ones we lost because of it all. I miss my friends. 6 months & change clean. Stay strong! Much love from NY
