Elliott Smith – I Better Be Quiet Now lyrics

Wish you gave me a number
Wish I could call you today,
Just to hear a voice.
I got a long way to go
Getting further away.

If I didn't know the difference,
Living alone would probably be ok.
It wouldn't be lonely.
I got a long way to go
Getting further away.

A lot of hours to occupy it was easy
When I didn't know you yet,
Things I'd have to forget.

But I better be quiet now,
I'm tired of wasting my breath
Carrying on, getting upset.

Maybe I have a problem,
But that's not what I wanted to say.
I prefer to say nothing.
I got a long way to go
Getting further away.

Had a dream as an army man with an order
Just to march in my place
But a dead enemy
Screams in my face

But I better be quiet now,
I'm tired of wasting my breath
Carrying on, not over it yet.

Wish I knew what you were doing.
Why you want to do it this way.
So I can't go the distance,
I got a long way to go,
I'm getting further away.
I got a long way to go
Getting further away.
