Elliott Smith

Elliott Smith - Between The Bars

I would go to pieces if you said that this was just an act

to come and take the sleep out of my night

And I would go to pieces if you said that this was just an act

to come and take the shine out of my life

Oh and I go through it all

Oh it's a thing like habit, I know

I would be a fighter for a tiny piece of a tiny feeling

give it up to wonder what it's worth

And I would feel much bigger for the little joy that you get from stealing

I never really wonder what it's worth

Oh and I am dead and gone

Oh you will feel much older, I know

I would feel much better if I thought there was any other reason

to keep away the beauty from the dirt

And I would do much better if I thought I fill any other need

And I miss you, oh

And I miss you, oh

And I would be complete if you could put me down in facts and figures

the hardest things are always black and white

And I would be complete if you could touch me once but it never figures

the easy things are never really right

Oh and I go day by day, oh it's a thing to live for, I know

And I would feel much better if I thought there was any other reason

to keep away the beauty from the dirt

And I would do much better if I thought I fill any other need

And I miss you, oh

And I miss you, oh

Why don't you take a walk outside and see the mess I made

and see the mess I made

And I will be waiting with a knife just like an angry child

just like an angry child

And why don't you go spread the word just like some disease

just like some disease

I know your mother told you that you are God

But you are just a Boy

I would be much better if I thought there was any other reason

to keep away the beauty from the dirt

I would do much better if I thought there was any other need

And I miss you, oh

And I miss you, oh

And I would feel much better if I thought there was any other reason

to keep away the beauty from the dirt

And I would do much better if I thought there was any other need

And I miss you, oh

And I miss you, and I miss you
