Little One
Elliott Smith Lyrics


One more little one
I'll go down and stay down
Sleep the rest of the day
Dreaming music to calm down

And stay down and keep evil away
I can see you asleep
Changing your shape
Dissolved in some dream
As a new one appears
To take you along where you've never been
The moonlight tonight seems to belong to me
'Cause I never go to sleep
I keep it company

One hit wouldn't matter a bit I'll
Stay down and think
What's here to find
If it's good or?

And I won't know the fact that I'm dying
If I seem to be reckless with myself
It's the fault of no one
All things have a place

Under the moon as well as the sun
One more
Little one I love you

One more little one
I'll go down, stay down
Sleep the rest of the day
Dream new music to calm down
Stay down and keep evil away
I can hear you asleep
Changing your shape
Dissolved in some dream
As a new one appears
To take you along where you've never been
One, two, three, four, five, six...
The moonlight tonight seems to belong to me
'Cos even though some can't sleep
They need some company
One hit wouldn't hurt a bit at all
Slow down sleep
What's there to fight?
If it's good shit you won't know
And I won't know the fact that I'm dying
If I seem to be reckless with myself
It's the fault of no one
All things have a place
Under the moon as well as the sun
One more little one
I love you

One more little one
I'll go down, stay down
Sleep the rest of the day
Dream new music to calm down
Stay down and keep evil away
I can hear you asleep
Changing your shape
Dissolved in some dream
As a new one appears
To take you along where you've never been
One, two, three, four, five, six, seven
The moonlight tonight seems to belong to me
Cause I even though some can't sleep
I need some company
One hit wouldn't hurt a bit at all
Slow down, see
What's else to find
If it's good shit you won't know
And I won't know the fact that I'm dying
If I seem to be reckless with myself
It's the fault of no one
All things have a place
Under the moon as well as the sun
One more
Little one I love you

Koala Nectar

This is one of his saddest songs, even though musically it sounds very whimsical and beatles-esq. It's just clearly about heroin.

Legalise Ketamin

@Koala Nectar I understand you. It seems to be a common theme in Elliott’s music.

Koala Nectar

@Legalise Ketamin Yeah, whimsical may have been the wrong word. I just mean it's musically juxtaposed to the mood of the lyrical content in certain places. He's kind of evoking the relaxing bliss that drugs bring while acknowledging that he's aware it's killing him.

Legalise Ketamin

@Koala Nectar each to their own, even without paying attention to the lyrics I find the melody incredibly melancholy

Koala Nectar

@Legalise Ketamin Musically, yes. It's the type of guitar part lennon or mccartney might have written. Lyrically, no. The lyrics are beautiful but incredibly sad

Legalise Ketamin

this sounds whimsical to you?
