High and Dry
Radiohead Lyrics


Two jumps in a week
I bet you think that's pretty clever, don't you, boy?
Flying on your motorcycle
Watching all the ground beneath you drop

You'd kill yourself for recognition
Kill yourself to never, ever stop
You broke another mirror
You're turning into something you are not
Don't leave me high
Don't leave me dry
Don't leave me high
Don't leave me dry

Drying up in conversation
You will be the one who cannot talk
All your insides fall to pieces
You just sit there wishing you could still make love

They're the ones who'll hate you
When you think you've got the world all sussed out
They're the ones who'll spit at you
You will be the one screaming out

Don't leave me high
Don't leave me dry
Don't leave me high
Don't leave me dry

Oh, it's the best thing that you've ever had
The best thing you've ever, ever had
It's the best thing that you've ever had
The best thing you have had is gone away

So don't leave me high
Don't leave me dry
Don't leave me high
Don't leave me dry
Don't leave me high
Don't leave me high
Don't leave me dry

I had a friend named Ava who used to play this song when she felt down. She was neglected by her parents because they only cared about money, and I tried to spend as much time with her so she wouldn’t fall into depression. I was basically her pillar of support, and we hung out a lot


Seven years ago she committed suicide by slitting her wrists with a kitchen knife while her parents were at work. During the fueneral Her parents was yawning and texting, and I figured out why she really came. Turns out, Ava’s grandfather left his fortune to her, which I figured out from her Older sister. And her parents were there to collect the money


Now, in 2020, I’m a 24 year old Biology schoolteacher in Glasgow, Scotland, having moved from America to The U.K. I’m married and have a 4 year old daughter. I still keep in touch with Ava’s sister, and I still play this song when I Feel down in Ava’s memory

Edit: I’m not doing this for likes or whatnot. I want to spread awareness and share Ava’s story. I have no interest in likes

Edit 2- thanks for the support everyone. I just want to let people who lost friends or family know that you’re not alone in this world. Stay strong during these hard times

I bet you think that's pretty clever, don't you, boy?
Flying on your motorcycle
Watching all the ground beneath you drop
You'd kill yourself for recognition
Kill yourself to never, ever stop
You broke another mirror
You're turning into something you are not
Don't leave me high
Don't leave me dry
Don't leave me high
Don't leave me dry
Drying up in conversation
You will be the one who cannot talk
All your insides fall to pieces
You just sit there wishing you could still make love
They're the ones who'll hate you
When you think you've got the world all sussed out
They're the ones who'll spit at you
You will be the one screaming out
Don't leave me high
Don't leave me dry
Don't leave me high
Don't leave me dry
Oh, it's the best thing that you've ever had
The best thing you've ever, ever had
It's the best thing that you've ever had
The best thing you have had is gone away
So don't leave me high
Don't leave me dry
Don't leave me high
Don't leave me dry
Don't leave me high
Don't leave me high
Don't leave me dry

Radiohead - High and Dry

Two jumps in a week,
I bet you think that's pretty clever don't you boy.
Flying on your motorcycle,
Watching all the ground beneath you drop.
You'd kill yourself for recognition,
Kill yourself to never ever stop.
You broke another mirror,
You're turning into something you are not.

Don't leave me high,
Don't leave me dry
Don't leave me high,
Don't leave me dry

Drying up in conversation,
You will be the one who cannot talk.
All your insides fall to pieces,
You just sit there wishing you could still make love
They're the ones who'll hate you
When you think you've got the world all sussed out
They're the ones who'll spit at you.
You will be the one screaming out.

Don't leave me high,
Don't leave me dry
Don't leave me high,
Don't leave me dry

It's the best thing that you've ever had,
The best thing that you've ever, ever had.
It's the best thing that you've ever had,
The best thing you've had has gone away.

Don't leave me high,
Don't leave me dry
