Cupid's Trick
Elliott Smith Lyrics


She's shaking down
I'm absent and numb from shock
Reachin' around for the
Hands of the clock

Should've lied

Lit me up, it's my lie
Should've lit me up, it's my lie
Should've lit me up, it's my lie
Should've lit me up, it's my lie
Should've lit me up

Cupid's trick comes
Down to shake and deal
A stupid kick that
Makes me real

Should've lied

Lit me up, it's my lie
Should've lit me up, it's my lie
Should've lit me up, it's my lie
Should've lit me up, it's my lie
Should've lit me up

She's shaking down
It's never over and done
So kick me, cane me
And I'll know

Why

Lit me up, it's my lie
Should've lit me up, it's my lie
Should've lit me up, it's my lie
Should've lit me up, it's my lie
Should've lit me up

She's shaking down
I'm absent and numb from shock
Reachin' around for the
Hands of the clock

Should've lied

Lit me up, it's my lie
Should've lit me up, it's my lie
Should've lit me up, it's my lie
Should've lit me up, it's my lie
Should've lit me up

Cupid's trick comes
Down to shake and deal
A stupid kick that
Makes me real

Should've lied

Lit me up, it's my lie
Should've lit me up, it's my lie
Should've lit me up, it's my lie
Should've lit me up, it's my lie
Should've lit me up

She's shaking down
It's never over and done
So kick me, cane me
And I'll know

Why

Lit me up, it's my lie
Should've lit me up, it's my lie
Should've lit me up, it's my lie
Should've lit me up, it's my lie
Should've lit me up

She's shaking down
I'm absent and numb from shock
Reaching around for the hands of the clock
Sugar lied, lick me up, it's my lie
Sugar lick me up, it's my lie
Sugar lick me up, it's my lie
Sugar lick me up

Cupid's trick comes down to shake and deal
The stupid kick that makes me real
Sugar lied, lick me up, it's my lie
Sugar lick me up, it's my lie
Sugar lick me up, it's my lie
Sugar lick me up

She's shaking down
It's never over and done
So kick me, cave me in, I'm no one
Lick me up, it's my lie
Sugar lick me up, it's my lie
Sugar lick me up, it's my lie
Sugar lick me up

Should've lied
Lit me up, it's my lie
Should've lit me up, it's my lie
Should've lit me up, it's my lie

Miss Lemon

I distinctly hear "Sugar, lick me up" but it almost seems like he wants it to sound like "Shoot me up." Listen carefully. Tell me what you think. Also, it sounds like "Sugar lied" after "A stupid kick that makes me reel." Yeah?

I can't believe it took me all these years to hear this track. I put in my bloody valentine, jeff buckley and radiohead as 3 artists, on tidal music, and this song was the first on the radio playlist shuffle.

Spencer Coe

Been almost a year. Hope you're just as obsessed now as I (and a bunch of others) are!

Izaak Diggs

Proof that as a one man band Steven could rock like a motherfucker: The way he arranged and played the drums, the guitar break, even his subtle bass lines. He was the genius everyone says Kurt Cobain was, but more so. He's like an even more talented Chris Bell, another "cult" guy who was overshadowed by someone else (Alex Chilton).

Spencer Coe

I always love seeing the Big Star comparisons, seeing how much he loved them. Alex, Chris, and Elliott were all too good for this world.

@Rodolfo Gonzalez duh

Jasmine Waffles

Beautifully said!!! I couldn’t agree more.

Rodolfo Gonzalez

He was somewhat suicidal

"It sounds like 'sugar lift me up', is it 'sugar' something?:
Yeah, but I can't say because it's too stupid. I have no idea what I meant by it. At the time it made perfect sense but now I just don't want anybody to know."
