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

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

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

I thought it was "sugar, lick me up" but idk that's just how I've heard it

The American Outback

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).

Σωτήρης Ρούσσης

Hypnotic rock n roll at its finest form.Love u Elliott!

stevearle

Also! , it could be that E.S. is singing different verses each time (check it out) thereby making us all kinda right while Elliot plays a "trick" on us.    Also anyone seen "Heaven Adores You"?   and.......?

Ian Wilmoth

Like nirvana did. It's a good trick.

S.H W III

damnit wish he was wearing my t shirt and not my dads haaaa. RIP Elliot, you will never die

Toro

The heaviest song of the record, I quite like it.

Abbey Milner
