CUPID'S TRICK
Elliott Smith


She's shaking down
I'm absent and numb from shock
Reaching around for the hands of the clock
Should've lied

Lit me up, it's my lie
Should've lit me up, it's my lie
Should've lit me up, it's my lie
Should've lit me up

Cupid's trick comes
Down to shake and deal
The stupid kick that makes me real
Should've lied

Lit me up, it's my lie
Should've lit me up, it's my lie
Should've lit me up, it's my lie
Should've lit me up

She's shaking down
It's never over and done.
So, kick me, cane me
then I'll know
Why

Lit me up, it's my lie
Should've lit me up, it's my lie
Should've lit me up, it's my lie
Should've lit me up
