Elliott Smith – No Name #3 Lyrics


You pyonged “Elliott Smith – No Name #3”

Save Note No Thanks
Caution: You are now annotating this song as

At a party he was waiting
Looking kind of spooky and withdrawn
Like he could be underwater
The might mother with her hundred arms
Swept all aside
I hate to walk behind other people's ambitions
I saw you waiting
Saint like
With you warning
Leave alone
You don't belong here
He got nervous
Started whistling
Every thought a ricochet
Did you notice?
Well, I wondered
What's the worst thing I could say?
And I froze up and sighed
You remind me of someone's daughter
I forgot her
I forgot her name, ashamed
Go home and live with your pain
Leave alone
Leave alone cause you know you don't belong
You don't belong here
Slip out quiet
Nobody's looking
Leave alone
You don't belong here
