SON OF SAM
Elliott Smith


Something's happening

Don't speak too soon

I told the boss off, made my move

Got nowhere to go

Son of Sam

Son of the shining path, the clouded mind

The couple killer each and every time


I'm not uncomfortable feeling weird

Lonely leered, options disappeared

But I know what to do

Son of Sam, son of a doctor's touch, a nurse's love

Acting under orders from above


King for a day


Son of Sam

Son of the shining path, the clouded mind

The couple killer running out of time

Shiva opens her arms now

To make sure I don't get too far

I may talk in my sleep tonight

'cos I don't know what I am

I'm a little like you

More like Son of Sam
