A Passing Feeling
Elliott Smith Lyrics


Everything is gone but the echo of the burst of a shell
And I'm stuck waiting for a passing feeling
In the city I built up and blew to hell
I'm stuck here waiting for a passing feeling

Still I send all the time
My request for relief
Down the dead power lines
Though I'm beyond belief
In the help I require
Just to exist at all
Took a long time to stand
Just an hour to fall.

I'm stuck here waiting for a passing feeling
Stuck here waiting for the passing feeling
Still I send all the time
My request for relief

Down the dead power lines
Though I'm beyond belief
In the help I require
Just to exist at all

Took a long time to stand
Just an hour to fall

Took a long time to stand
Took an hour to fall
I'm stuck here waiting for a passing feeling
Stuck here waiting for a passing feeling
Still I send all the time
My request for relief
Down the dead power line
Though I'm beyond belief
In the help I require
Just to exist at all
Took a long time to stand
Took an hour to fall

There's not a song by this man that I don't like. I love this man. I'm sad that I'll never get to see him live.

Roger doesn't wear a mask

Erika Martinez everyday day I miss Elliot but I'm glad I still got my Cat Power.. I don't know how I'd handle losing cat power or Morrisey too.. they're irreplaceable! and that's the short list.. but Elliott was definitely snatched from us too soon.. Murdered..

Erika Martinez

I agree with you! i saw him live twice, i tell you they were both amazing experiences, the last one was 3 months before he died. Happy to know he has so many fans!
