Elliott Smith – Can't Answer You Anymore lyrics

Something came from nothing today
While I was saying no

So don't you knock on my door
Cause I can't answer you anymore

Absence makes the heart grow far
Stayin' away from the people

Was a question before
But I can't answer you anymore

Stepped to the sea ?
I did everything right
For somebody that does everything wrong

So I go from coast to coast
Over the hawthorne bridge

To the one I adore
You asked me what I'm looking for
But I can't answer you anymore
No I can't answer you anymore
