Elliott Smith – I'm Doing Okay, Pretty Good lyrics

You can go
Anytime you want
I won't watch, it hurts too much

If you stay, promise you will be
Better to you
Better to me

Been out to celebrate my new freedom
With a drink to you
Cause you made it new
And I hate people A through Z
And everything, everything

I know how to celebrate my new freedom
Forget other stuff if I drink enough
To pretend that I got people too
And people love me
And care what I feel

You trying to be nice
Well I never asked your advice

I know how to handle a situation
Gotta be discreet
And admit defeat

You can go
And I say what I should:
"i'm doing okay, pretty good"
