Lyric "Shooting Star"

[Verse 1]
You'll make the scene
Like you always do
Going upstream
Down the avenue
To fuck some trophy boy
That you'll win tonight at the bar

So bad, so far
You'll make him sad
Shooting star

[Verse 2]
When it was me
I was momentarily proud
Drunk on dreams
Now I'm glad I didn't say out loud
You said you'd be for real
But I don't believe that you are

So bad, so far
You make me sad
Shooting star

You're distant and cold
And a sight to behold
Everybody just sighs

But no one gets on
With you very long
Cause you don't feel bad when you lie

[Verse 3]
I'm going to sleep now
Going back to find square one
Square two be where
I can deal with the shit you just done
It won't be soon
Say the least it's gonna be hard

So bad, so far
Your love is sad
Shooting star

Your love is sad
Shooting star

Elliott Smith

Steven Paul Smith (August 6, 1969 – October 21, 2003) was an American singer, songwriter, and musician. Smith was born in Omaha, Nebraska, raised primarily in Texas, and lived for much of his life in Portland, Oregon, where he first gained popularity. Smith's primary instrument was the guitar, though he was also proficient with piano, clarinet, bass guitar, drums, and harmonica. Smith had a distinctive vocal style, characterized by his "whispery, spiderweb-thin delivery", and used multi-tracking to create vocal layers, textures, and harmonies.
