Waltz #2
Elliott Smith Lyrics


First the mic then a half cigarette
Singing cathy's clown
That's the man that she's married to now
That's the girl that he takes around town

She appears composed, so she is, I suppose
Who can really tell?
She shows no emotion at all
Stares into space like a dead china doll
I'm never gonna know you now, but I'm gonna love you anyhow
Now she's done and they're calling someone
Such a familiar name
I'm so glad that my memory's remote

'Cause I'm doing just fine hour to hour, note to note
Here it is, the revenge to the tune,
"You're no good,
You're no good you're no good you're no good"

Can't you tell that it's well understood?
I'm never gonna know you now, but I'm gonna love you anyhow
I'm here today and expected to stay on and on and on
I'm tired

I'm tired
Looking out on the substitute scene
Still going strong
XO, mom

It's ok, it's alright, nothing's wrong
Tell mr. man with impossible plans to just leave me alone
In the place where I make no mistakes
In the place where I have what it takes

I'm never gonna know you now, but I'm gonna love you anyhow
I'm never gonna know you now, but I'm gonna love you anyhow
I'm never gonna know you now, but I'm gonna love you anyhow

First the mic, then a half cigarette
singing 'Cathy's Clown'
That's the man that she's married to now
That's the girl that he takes around town
She appears composed, so she is I suppose
Who can really tell?
She shows no emotion at all
Stares into space like a dead China doll
I'm never gonna know you now, but I'm gonna love you anyhow
Now she's done and there calling someone
Such a familiar name
I'm so glad that my memory's remote
'Cos I'm doing just fine hour to hour, note to note
Here it is the revenge to the tune
"you're no good,
You're no good you're no good you're no good"
Can't you tell that it's well understood
I'm never gonna know you now, but I'm gonna love you anyhow
I'm here today and expected to stay on and on and on
I'm tired
I'm tired
Looking out on the substitute scene
still going strong
XO, mom
It's ok, it's alright, nothing's wrong
Tell mr. man with impossible plans to just leave me alone
In the place where I make no mistakes
In the place where I have what it takes
I'm never gonna know you now, but I'm gonna love you anyhow

Today would've been Elliott Smith's 50th birthday

Carol S. K. Zullo

@Cryptophosphene Channel It did.

But of course we wanted way more.

@Sachin Bulukale So, so much.

mjjHines

@Cryptophosphene Channel It did, darling.

@Elijah Elenburg I know two others with his birthday. All three are extremely special, extraordinary people. I'm sure you are, too. A most auspicious birthday to have. (Mine's August 15, not far behind, but...)

Melissa Renee

@Johannes de Vreeze I don't know what the Royal Tenenbaums soundtrack would be without Needle in the Hay.

I named my son after Elliott Smith. And my child is one talented Guy. RIP Elliott Smith you were a genius ❤

Jon Mullins

I named my son after him too

SocialDefect

I named my kid after Elliott and Kurt Cobain. :/

Kelly Bale

Amazing tribute. I'll always remember this so if your son does make a name for himself, I'll likely relate back to this day :)
