I Didn't Understand
Elliott Smith Lyrics


Thought you'd be looking for the next in line to love then ignore
Put out and put away
And so you'd soon be leaving me alone like I'm supposed to be tonight
Tomorrow and everyday
There's nothing here that you'll miss
I can guarantee you this is a cloud of smoke
Trying to occupy space
What a fucking joke
What a fucking joke
I waited for a bus to separate the both of us and take me off far away
From you 'cause my feelings never change a bit I always feel like shit I
Don't know why I guess that I \"just do\"
You once talked to me about love and you painted pictures of
A never-neverland and I could've gone to that place
But I didn't understand
I didn't understand
I didn't understand

Thought you'd be looking for the next in line to love
Then ignore, put out, and put away
And so you'd soon be leaving me
Alone, like I'm supposed to be
Tonight, tomorrow, and everyday

There's nothing here that you'll miss
I can guarantee you this:
Is a cloud of smoke
Trying to occupy space
What a fucking joke
What a fucking joke

I waited for a bus to separate the both of us
And take me off, far away from you
Cause my feelings never change a bit
I always feel like shit
I don't know why, I guess that I just do

You once talked to me about love
And you painted pictures of
A Never Never Land
And I could've gone to that place
But I didn't understand

I didn't understand
I didn't understand

I just think it's a beautiful song! It's got nothing to do with my emotional state, it's just really pretty and the lyrics make me feel like I'm swimming through a cloud of LOL JK it's totally the unyielding depression that brought me here.

Depressed beach boys music, which is silly considering brian wilson's own mental illness.
