NO NAME #6
Elliott Smith


You've got the wrong equation
your figures fell so you make more up
all's false in celebration
if only you could just change your luck
this time we can't lose
this time we can't lose
you're pushing nine you're doing pretty
but you're playing with the sound turned down
we drive along between the cows and cotton
saying with the stars all around
this time we can't lose
this time we can't lose
the moon is in a sickle shape
you know you're only really happy just for now
looked at the city scape
well there's a planet that'll catch you and drag you back down
this time we can't lose
this time we can't lose
this time we can't lose
this time we can't lose
can't lose
can't lose
