I Better Be Quiet Now
Elliott Smith Lyrics


Wish you gave me your number
Wish I could call you today, just to hear a voice
I got a long way to go
I'm getting further away

If I didn't know the difference living alone'd probably be ok
It wouldn't be lonely
I got a long way to go
I'm getting further away
A lot of hours to occupy, it was easy when I didn't know you yet
Things I have to forget
But I better be quiet now
I'm tired of wasting my breath
Carrying on and getting upset

Maybe IÂ got a problem, but that's not what I wanted to say
I'd prefer to say nothing.
I got a long way to go
I'm getting further away.

Had a dream as an army man with an order just to march in my place
While a dead enemy screams in my face
But I better be quiet now
I'm tired of wasting my breath
Carrying on, not over it yet

Wish I knew what you're doing
And why you want to do it this way, so I can't go the distance
I got a long way to go
I'm getting further away
I got a long way to go
I'm getting further away

But I better be quiet now
I'm tired of wasting my breath
Carrying on and getting upset
Maybe I've got a problem, but that's not what I wanted to say
I'd prefer to say nothing.
I got a long way to go
I'm getting further away.

I don't have to say anything. Elliott said it for me. I'm almost done with this.

Thank you Elliott Smith for ever having existed. Your songs somehow calm me down whenever I want to quit everything.

Elliot wouldve turned fifty this week. His music is a gift and a wonderful reprieve from this awful, violent world we live in. You are missed Elliot, wherever you are. The world needed more creative and sensitive people like you.

Lynn Turman

If this guy isn't remembered as one of the great singer/songwriters, this world is really fucked up.

black spring

even if he is remembered as such, this world is really fucked up.

Lee Morris

Lynn Turman society’s fucked up, the world’s fine.

Daniel Gough

Rick and morty introduced him to a new audience

Derek Belbin

@ Outbaker....and you certainly are not infinitely knowledgeable about what constitutes incredibly well written music and deeply profound lyrics.Lady Gag is nothing but a prefabricated commodity promoted by record company PR men to advance the sale of vacuous,insipid musical fodder that's only redeeming quality is having a primitive,monotonous beat that cerebral Lilliputians find irresistible to get up and dance to and then to run out and waste their money buying in massive quantities.
