Last Call
Elliott Smith Lyrics


Last Call
He was sick of it all
Asleep at home
Told you off and goodbye

Well you know one day it'll come to haunt you
That you didn't tell him quite the truth
You're a crisis
You're an icicle
You're a tongueless talker
You don't care what you say
You're a jaywalker and you just just walk away
And that's all you do

The clap of the fading out sound of your shoes
Made him wonder who he thought that he knew
Last call
He was sick of it all

The endless stream of reminders
Made him so sick of you sick of you sick of you
Sick of your sound
Sick of you coming around

Trying to crawl under my skin
When I already shed my best defense
It comes out all around that you won
And I think I'm all done

You can switch me off safely
While I'm lying here waiting for sleep to overtake me
Yeah yeah you're still here but just check to make sure
All you aspired to do was endure

You can't ask for more ask for more
Knowing you'll never get that which you ask for
So you cast your shadow everywhere like the man in the moon
You start to drink you just want to continue

It'll all be yester year soon
You start to drink you just want to continue
It'll all be yester year soon
Church bells and now I'm awake and I guess it must be some kind of holiday

I can't seem to join in the celebration
But I'll go to the service
And I'll go to pray
And I'll sing the praises of my maker's name

Like I was as good as she made me
And I wanted her to tell me that she would never wake me

I wanted her to tell me that she would never wake me
I wanted her to tell me that she would never wake me
I wanted her to tell me that she would never wake me
I wanted her to tell me that she would never wake me
I wanted her to tell me that she would never wake me
I wanted her to tell me that she would never wake me
I wanted her to tell me that she would never wake me
I'm lying here waiting for sleep to overtake me

Pencil of Doom

Veeeer LEFT!!!


In a few billion short years from now.
that will have been… razor thin.
But you saved us all from what befalls
a great many stars and average men.
You baffled the fates somehow.
With a wrench of the wheel
Our doom was unsealed
In a just a few lightyears from now.

Last call
He was sick of it all
Asleep at home
Told you off and goodbye
Well you know one day it'll come to haunt you
That you didn't tell him quite the truth
You're a crisis
You're an icicle
You're a tongueless talker
You don't care what you say
You're a jaywalker and you just, just walk away
And that's all you do
The clap of the fading-out sound of your shoes
Made him wonder who he thought that he knew
Last call
He was sick of it all
The endless stream of reminders
Made him so sick of you sick of you sick of you
Sick of your sound
Sick of you coming around
Trying to crawl under my skin
When I already shed my best defense
It comes out all around that you won
And I think I'm all done
You can switch me off safely
While I'm lying here waiting for sleep to overtake me
Yeah yeah you're still here but just check to make sure
All you aspired to do was endure

Knowing you'll never get that which you ask for
So you cast your shadow everywhere like the man in the moon
You start to drink and just want to continue
It'll all be yesteryear soon
You start to drink and just want to continue
It'll all be yesteryear soon
Church bells and now I'm awake
And I guess it must be some kind of holiday
I can't seem to join in the celebration
But I'll go to the service
And I'll go to pray
And I'll sing the praises of my maker's name
Like I was as good as she made me
And I wanted her to tell me that she would never wake me
I wanted her to tell me that she would never wake me
I wanted her to tell me that she would never wake me
I wanted her to tell me that she would never wake me
I wanted her to tell me that she would never wake me
I wanted her to tell me that she would never wake me
I wanted her to tell me that she would never wake me
I wanted her to tell me that she would never wake me
I'm lying here waiting for sleep to overtake me

I miss you so much Eliott, your heart still shines so brightly

Olivier Dubé

@Nicholas H I've come to realised that contrary to Cobain, Elliott was most likely stabbed in a moment of frenzy by his girlfriend. Why? Cause of the angle of the stabs. That's my theory, neighbors also heard a commotion going on. I don't want to go much into details - you can look it up for yourself - but Mrs. Chibba also called police like half an hour after the act. Imagine having the love of your life dead at your feet and waiting half an hour to dial for help, everything about this is shady

HOLY CRAPPER YOU LISTEN TO ELLIOTT SMITJ

Nicholas H

you think he was murdered? considering you are a true crime channel and an Elliott Smith fan I'd imagine you've researched into his death

Asa Antoine

I know you from Arcade Craniacs. My small 8th grade class used to watch those videos in class! Cool that you have a good taste in music

I mean, his music is just too good to be true. Like, I can't believe it exists.
Elliott, you utter darling, you are a voice for the lost, and you make me ache. :( <3

Yeah 100% a complete outsider the best kind .I think most people who are baffled by Elliott are also capable geniuses.

Peacock Affect

Soft and gritty at the same time. Elliott Smith was a genius.

KoRn Hub
