Elliott Smith – A Fond Farewell lyrics

The Litebrite's now black and white
Cause you took apart a picture that wasn't right
Pitch burning on a shining sheet
The only maker that you want to meet
A dying man in a living room
Whose shadow paces the floor
Who'll take you out in the open door
This is not my life
It's just a fond farewell to a friend
It's not what I'm like
It's just a fond farewell to a friend
Who couldn't get things right
A fond farewell to a friend
He said really I just want to dance
Good and evil match perfect, it's a great romance
And I can deal with some psychic pain
If it'll slow down my higher brain
Veins full of disappearing ink
Vomiting in your kitchen sink
Disconnecting from the missing link
This is not my life
It's just a fond farewell to a friend
It's not what I'm like
I'ts just a fond farewell to a friend
Who couldn't get things right
A fond farewell to a friend
I see you're leaving me
And taking up with the enemy
The cold comfort of the in-between
A little less than a human being
A little less than a happy high
A little less than a suicide
The only things that you really tried
This is not my life
It's just a fond farewell to a friend
It's not what I'm like
It's just a fond farewell to a friend
Who couldn't get things right
A fond farewell to a friend
This is not my life
It's just a fond farewell to a friend

    Naa I think hes saying goodbye to her. She may be several people in his life. She may be no one, just an image hes had of everyone leaving him because of his addiction and all the baggage that comes with an addiction. Hes saying, this isn't really me, this isn't what I want. From experience, I think that he is just so lonely and depressed and from everyone leaving him, the only thing he knows of not to have let him down are the drugs. I completely understand it, I was there. I wish he hadnt died. So at least one of us could have reached out to him. I can't stop but wonder if anyone did.

    Maybe some person he really loved abandoned him and he got really affected by that. He got really depressed maybe and thought of bad things then in time realized that there is more to his life and then he is just explaining that all the depressing feelings. That the person wont be comin back at all must have been his last deep thoughts for that person. Like last words when we bid some1 goodbye.
