Elliott Smith – Don't Go Down lyrics

I met a girl
Snowball in hell
She's as hard
And as cracked as a liberty bell
And I got her to
Come on and move in with me
And I said I'll find a better place
Where we can spend eternity
Don't go down
Don't go down
Stay with me, baby stay
Her mother called me a thief
And her dad
Was a total commander and chief
I fall in love with my love
But I knew the kind of worthlessness we have to raise above
Don't go down
Don't go down
Stay with me, baby stay
Don't go down
Don't go down
Stay with me, baby stay
She had a dream
Woke up in shock
She had seen
Her own body outlined in chalk
No fingerprints were found on the gun
And her ghost leaned down to kiss me
With a message from the sun
Don't go down
Don't go down
Stay with me, baby stay
Don't go down
Stay with me, baby stay
Don't go down
Stay with me, baby stay
