Georgia Georgia
Elliott Smith Lyrics


Georgia Georgia
It's been many miles
Since I've seen your fallen smile
Close up and personal

Your arsenal of excuses
You never told her
When you walked out on the savannah shoulder
With your veins all full of beer
Thinking well at least now everything is clear
But oh man
What plan
Suicide

It's just not that much different from my own affair
Always cussing and crying
How about if you
Tell me something new

Tell me what will make you happy
Oh you
So deserve to be
There were protests and contests

Attitudes to cop
I want it all to stop
Three weeks ago you were all grace and charm
And now I know it was just a false alarm

Georgia Georgia
I can't understand your sickness
You have no forgiveness
No attention left to pay

The quiet way you leave
And just forget it all
Just takes my breath away
How's that supposed to make me feel

Yeah, well, how am I supposed to feel

It's important to remember these songs: to remember that this is a double album of outtakes that didn't even make it onto the two albums pressed during their composition. It's important because so many of them are understated masterpieces, like Smith's work as a whole.

If you have in yourself a creative spark, whatever your medium, remember this: It's not important to remember these songs so as to become discouraged; but rather, it's important to remember these songs to take them in as fuel with which the singular spark in you and only you might shine, for its time, in this place. For any who needs to see or hear or know what you have to say.

Definitely says "all ends," barely discernible

Truth&Reason101

@Dionysoshaman He clearly says "since" though. The lyrics websites on google are wrong with this one. He very clearly also says "All ends in cussing and crying", not "Always cussing and crying".

Dionysoshaman

@Andy Sparks Not trying to sound petty or the like, but I gotta disagree with your "interpretation" of those lyrics. I am completely certain that the line is "sickness" instead of since. I'm just as convinced that the lyrics say cussing and not cursing, but since they are interchangeable in definition, there's not much reason to debate on that one. Either way the fact that you're a fellow Elliott Smith "devotee" I hope that all is well with you and yours friend!

Charlii Dunn all ends in cursing and crying ( would be correct ) I can't understand you since ( also )

Ben Qotsa2017

Derrick Boess

The foreshadowing in this song is so eerie.
