Elliott Smith – Go By lyrics

Waited a little while
By a 11 sunset street
And a lady looking tired drozed along
Take away your dream
Cause he's all shell might
Come by tonight
She thought so too
So hear the way he talked
I drank too many cars
He lives up in his head
Scared of every little noise
Someones always breaking in after then late
Usually nothing about that voice
Where he walks along
Stream money along
Down here one way
A concetcuent divide
When melting past his eyes
Go by, go by
Go by, go by
He wont come by tonight
But if he did it'd only hurt
All the things she'd have to say
To me before
The works that that he should hurts
Like a happy song any
Any temperate wall
Youd make him cry
You tell me you don't know which
Beginning that the edge
Go by, Go by
Go by, Go by
Go by, Go by
Go by, Go by
