NEW DISASTER
Elliott Smith


Ghost of your smile always looking for new bodies to haunt
And it's been here
And disappeared
It's hanging around aloofly for a while, gradually gone
It's pleasing
And freezing
While I wonder what it is you're after
Keeping company with this disaster
You looked all over town, got turned around and walked back through the mud
The kind you had left behind you
Everybody's the same in this long knowing game
Where every new blood gets time to become resigned
Now I wonder what it is you're after
Keeping company with this disaster
Why never try to tame your master
You just blow through the coals
Blow through the coals
Blow through the coals till everyone knows
That your smile is just a ghost
The ghost of your smile was seen on a body in the park
It's old news
You see that it's no use
Waiting to start, waiting to lie, wait until dark
I told you man, I told you
While I wonder what it is you're after
Keeping company with this disaster
Why you never try to tame your master
