Sad Lyric of the Day

And with this final lyric, "Pitseleh" by Elliott Smith, it's essentially a wrap for Depressing Music Week. A hearty thank you to Tom Reynolds for stopping by and enlivening things for a few days. If you've stumbled upon the blog because of his presence, I hope you'll stick around. Now, a few words from Mr. Smith...

"Pitseleh"

I'll tell you why I don't want to know where you are
I got a joke I’ve been dying to tell you
A silent kid is looking down the barrel
to make the noise that I kept so quiet
I kept it from you, Pitseleh
I'm not what's missing from your life now
I could never be the puzzle pieces
They say that god makes problems
just to see what you can stand
before you do as the devil pleases
and give up the thing you love
But no one deserves it
The first time I saw you I knew it would never last
I'm not half what I wish I was
I'm so angry
I don't think it'll ever pass
and I was bad news for you just because
I never meant to hurt you

The only comment an Elliott Smith posting elicits is a spam comment? Now that's sad.
