Elliott Smith

Haven't laughed this hard in a long time

I better stop now before I start crying

Go off to sleep in the sunshine

I don't want to see the day when it's dying

She's a sight to see, she's good to me

I'm already somebody's baby

She's a pretty thing and she knows everything

But I'm already somebody's baby

You don't deserve to be lonely

But those drugs you got won't make you feel better

Pretty soon you'll find it's the only

Little part of your life you're keeping together

I'm nice to you, I could make it through

That you're already somebody's baby

I could make you smile if you stayed a while

But how long will you stay with me baby

Because your candle burns too bright

Well, I almost forgot it was twilight

Even if I think that you are right

Well, I'm tired of being down, I got no fight

You're wonderful, when it's beautiful

But I'm already somebody's baby

And if I went with you I'd disappoint you too

Well, I'm already somebody's baby

Already somebody's baby
