Big Decision
Elliott Smith Lyrics


Pick me up in an hour or so
I don't really recommend it, no
They'll probably just put you down
I believe you

I want to be you
I believe you
I want to be you
I know you're not through with it yet
It's a big decision
You can't kick when you're down
Got a feeling kind of like a cough
Ain't nothing gonna shake it off

Ain't nothing gonna shake it off
Until you talk out loud
I believe you
I want to be you

I believe you
I want to be you
I know you're not through with it yet
It's a big decision

You can't kick when you're down
The chromium car reflects who you are taking you home
I'm under you're spell can't you tell? don't you know?
God, people wonder if you're sick

Spilled out on the city slick
Puffed up like a macho jerk
Don't even try it it'll never work
Why you wonder? what you wonder for me?

Why you wonder? what you wonder for me?
Why you want what I can not be you know I won't stay sober
I believe you
I want to be you

I believe you
I want to be you
I know you're not through with it yet
It's a big decision

I know you're not through with it yet
It's a big decision
I know you're not through with it yet
It's a big decision

You can't kick when you're down

Pick me up in an hour or so
I don't really recommend it, no
They'll probably just put you down
I believe you
I wanna be you
I believe you
I wanna be you
No, I’m not through with it yet
It's a big decision
You can't kick when you're down

Got a feeling kind of like a cough
Ain't nothing gonna shake it off
Ain't nothing gonna shake it off
Until you talk out loud
I believe you
I wanna be you
I believe you
I wanna be you
No, I’m not through with it yet
It's a big decision
You can't kick when you're down

The chromium car reflects who you are taking you home
I'm under your spell
Can't you tell?
Don't you know?
Got people wondering if you’re if you're sick
Spilled out on the city slick
Puffed up like a macho jerk
Don't even try it, it'll never work
While you wonder what you wanted from me
While you wonder what you wanted from me
While you want what I cannot be
You know I won't stay sober

I believe you
I wanna be you
I believe you
I wanna be you
I know you're not through with it yet
It's a big decision
I know you're not through with it yet
It's a big decision
I know you're not through with it yet
It's a big decision

You can't kick when you're down

My god, I love how even if I've been listening to Elliott Smith for a bit now, he continues to amaze me. Every new song I hear of him is a surprise. I'm just like "...oh my god, I didn't expect that, that's so great!"

So, thank you, Elliott.

Each one is amazing in its own way
