WALTZ #2
Elliott Smith


first the mic then a half cigarette

singing cathy's clown

that's the man that she's married to now

that's the girl that he takes around town

she appears composed, so she is, i suppose

who can really tell?

she shows no emotion at all

stares into space like a dead china doll

i'm never gonna know you now, but i'm gonna love you anyhow

now she's done and they're calling someone

such a familiar name

i'm so glad that my memories remote

'cos i'm doing just fine hour to hour, note to note

here it is the revenge to the tune

"you're no good,

you're no good you're no good you're no good"

can't you tell that it's well understood

i'm never gonna know you now, but i'm gonna love you anyhow

i'm here today and expected to stay on and on and on

i'm tired

i'm tired

looking out on the substitute scene

still going strong

XO, mom

it's ok, it's alright, nothing's wrong

tell mr. man with impossible plans to just leave me alone

in the place where i make no mistakes

in the place where i have what it takes

i'm never gonna know you now, but i'm gonna love you anyhow

i'm never gonna know you now, but i'm gonna love you anyhow

i'm never gonna know you now, but i'm gonna love you anyhow
