The Last Hour
Elliott Smith Lyrics


Here's the army
That you mowed to the ground
And the bodies you left lying around
Talking it out
The last hour
I'm through trying now
It's a big relief
I'll be staying down
Where no-one else gonna give me grief
Mess me around
Just make it over

Your opinion was the law of the land
A single thing that I couldn't always understand
I lived it out from hour to hour
The only thing that never really changed
You ran me all around
And dragged me down
At the end of the day
Don't keep me around
Just make it over

I've been thinking of the things that I missed
Situations that I passed up for this
One way love I took for ours
I'm through trying now
It's a big relief
I'll be staying down
I wasn't good at being a thief
More like a clown
Make it over

At the time of his death I was devastated since I had been following him since 96! Super underrated performer and the most beautiful. This song especially helped me a lot in 2004 when I was going thru a tough time in college. I will never forget him!

Big C

"'I've been thinking of the things that I missed
Situations that I passed up for this
One way love I took for ours"

DJ Justice

One of the best lines ever written in a song
