Elliott Smith - Waltz No. 2 lyrics

First the mic then a half cigarette
Singing "Cathy's Clown" -
That's the man that she's married to now.
That's the girl that he takes around town.

She appears composed, so she is, I suppose.
Who can really tell?
She shows no emotion at all,
Stares into space like a dead china doll.

I'm never gonna know you now,
But I'm gonna love you anyhow.

Now she's done and they're calling someone,
Such a familiar name.
I'm so glad that my memory's remote
'Cause I'm doing just fine
Hour to hour, note to note.

Here it is, the revenge to the tune:
You're no good,
You're no good, you're no good, you're no good.
Can't you tell that it's well understood?

I'm never gonna know you now,
But I'm gonna love you anyhow

I'm here today and expected to stay
On and on and on...
I'm tired,
I'm tired

Looking out on the substitute scene
Still going strong.
XO, Mom.
It's okay, it's alright, nothing's wrong.

Tell Mr. Man with impossible plans
To just leave me alone
In the place where I make no mistakes,
In the place where I have what it takes.

I'm never gonna know you now,
But I'm gonna love you anyhow.
I'm never gonna know you now,
But I'm gonna love you anyhow.
I'm never gonna know you now,
But I'm gonna love you anyhow.
