Elliott Smith

ut this picture into you and me

Burn it backwards, kill this history

Make it over, make it stay away

Or hate'll sing the ending that

Love started to say

There's a kid a floor below me singing

Brother can you spare sunshine for a brother

Old man winter's in the air

Walked me up a story, asking how ya' are

Told me not to worry, you're

Just a shooting star

Sweet Adeline

Sweet Adeline

My Clementine

Sweet Adeline

It's a picture perfect evening and I'm staring down the sun

Fully loaded, deaf and dumb and done

Waiting for sedation to disconnect MY head

Or any situation where I'm

Better off than dead
