Seen How Things Are Hard
Elliott Smith Lyrics


I took you to the train
Stupid shit you just play
I took the pictures in my head
You look like a skeleton a little dressy thing

You just didn't care
You're all getting drunk instead
Seen how things are hard
Seen how things are hard
I love you though
Seen how things are hard
Seen how things are hard
Well don't you know

The state of what you've got
It's a dizzy hot and just damn forgot
Stay well away from trouble that you caused
Using all your strength to keep the world at an arm's length

And I get upset that something was lost
Seen how things are hard
Seen how things are hard
I love you though

Seen how things are hard
Seen how things are hard
Well don't you know
I'm a glad reflection of you

I can't make corrections for you
You have to help to patch things up
Seen how things are hard
Seen how things are hard

I love you though
Seen how things are hard
Seen how things are hard
Well don't you know seen how things are hard

Seen how things are hard
I love you though
Seen how things are hard
Seen how things are hard

Well don't you know
No

Here it is, Thanksgiving night, sitting in a coffee shop killing time and taking breaks from reading by listening to some ES to get that overall better sense of well-being. Listening to ES works better than anything - I honestly can't think of anything else besides Elliott's music that I am grateful for in 2019 - not having come across him until last June.
It might only be one thing to be grateful for, but it's a BIG one that easily takes the place of 99 small and crappy, insincere kind of things to be grateful for.

John Smith

Julie Surber

How can anyone give this a thumbs down!?! On a trip, i played this song on repeat for over an hour. It was hard to stop. I was hurting and this song takes the pain away, because someone gets me. People are dumb :(

black spring

some people just have different taste than you Julie.

Raymund Agloro

The Christmas bells sends the song to a whole other level!

OddMuch

Maybe Elliott's an aquired taste but maybe people just dont know him. Spread his music

Marcus Metternich

One of my favorites of New Moon.
I don‘t like the comparisons, but this song really reminds me of Nick Drake.
