Half Right
Elliott Smith Lyrics


You shouldn't talk to your yourself
Well I pictured somebody else
Someone that looks like
What I look like

Would you say that one of your dreams
Got in you and ripped out the seams
That's what I'd say
That's what I'd say
He was a sucker for your double dose
Motherfucker turned white as a ghost
Don't you say hi
Don't you say hi

With a broken sink for a face
And a head that just takes up space
He's not half right
He's not half right

It's already half past
And it won't last

I was sticking up for my friend
When there's nothing much to defend
It's a lost fight
It's a lost fight

Cause when I talk to you on the phone
Well it's just like being alone
It's not half right
It's not half right

He's not half right
It's already half past
And it won't last

It's a lost fight

Well it's just like being alone
It's not half right
It's not half right

Well, you shouldn't doctor yourself
Well, I pictured somebody else
Someone that looks like
What I look like

Would you say that the one of your dreams
Got in you and ripped out the seams?
That's what I'd say
That's what I'd say

He was a sucker for your double-dose
Motherfucker turned white as a ghost
Don't you say hi
Don't you say hi

With a broken sink for a face
And a head that just takes up space
He's not half right
He's not half right

It's already half past
And it won't last

I was sticking up for my friend
When there's nothing much to defend
It's a lost fight
It's a lost fight

Cause when I talk to you on the phone
Well, it's just like being alone
It's not half right
It's not half right

We all live off the grid up here and thanks to satellite internet I can still listen to Elliott.
