everytime the day darkens down and goes away pictures open in my head
of me and you silent and cliché all the things we did and didn't say
covered up by what we did and didn't do going through every out i used to
cop to make the repetition stop:
what was i supposed to say?
now i never leave my zone we're both alone i'm going home
i wish i'd never seen your face
- Elliott Smith
This is for Tom, my sweetie.
This is kind of a sad song, I know, but I fell in love with him at the
same time that I was listening to this song a lot. Tom
recommended Elliott Smith to me and told me that I would probably like
this particular song. And, every time I listened to it, I thought
of him, and still do.
The lyrics are very beautiful, but on their own they don't really give
you an idea for how haunting the song really is when you listen to
Anyway, I was just thinking of you, Tom, and thinking that I love you, and wanting to post this song for you. :)
