Say Yes
Elliott Smith Lyrics


I'm in love with the world through the eyes of a girl
Who's still around the morning after
We broke up a month ago and I grew up I didn't know
I'd be around the morning after

It's always been wait and see
A happy day and then you pay
And feel like shit the morning after
But now I feel changed around and instead falling down
I'm standing up the morning after

Situations get fucked up and turned around sooner or later

And I could be another fool or an exception to the rule
You tell me the morning after

Crooked spin can't come to rest
I'm damaged bad at best
She'll decide what she wants

I'll probably be the last to know
No one says until it shows, see how it is
They want you or they don't
Say yes

I'm in love with the world through the eyes of a girl
Who's still around the morning after

Can you tell me what happened to Elliot smith’s song cigarettes and chocolate milk and why there are only crap covers of it to be found now. I’m really mad, because it was one of my favorites

Evan

unsure exactly how to articulate it but basically I wanna live in that little guitar line after he says “fucked up” at 1:09

Dwight Schrute

Totally understand and relate

Madoka Minagawa

I just discovered Elliott smith and wow all of his songs make me feel some emotion. what a criminally underrated artist, rip

Tony Kadlec

@Caleb Johnston exactly right, either you don't know him or you know him and appreciate him

Caleb Johnston

Elliott Smith is underrated? by who?

Shine Dawg

Seen this cat live in Orlando, greatest musician I have ever seen. So much emotion in his music, from joy to sadness. Rip Elliot Smith, one of the great influences in my life. The pain becomes overwhelming sometimes and we make our own choices, all the best to everyone
