Rilo Kiley It Just Is Lyrics

Last updated: 05/21/2012 11:00:00 AM

Today is the day I realized
That I could be loved
It echoed through the park last night
He wasn't our son
He belonged to everyone

And this loss isn't good enough
For sorrow or inspiration
It's such a loss
For the good guys
Afraid of this life
That it just is
Cause everybody
Dies

This loss isn't good enough
For sorrow or inspiration
It's such a loss
For the good guys
Afraid of this life
That it just is
Cause everybody

This loss isn't good enough
For sorrow or inspiration
It's such a loss
For the good guys
Afraid of this life
That it just is
Cause everybody
Dies

an eloquent elliott smith tribute | Reviewer: alaskaonthemoon | 5/21/12

in honour of elliott smith, jenny lewis and the rest of rilo kiley made this lovely tribute, just after elliott died*. it seems as though it's hopeless and full of grief and shock. like how so many felt after he died. it painted a nice portrait of him, too, if you really think. i think elliott would have liked it.
(*it has not been proven that it was a suicide. jen chiba is still a suspect.)

Elliott | Reviewer: Anonymous | 4/12/07

I just found out this song, along with Ripchord, is about the beloved Elliott Smith.
