Elliott Smith I Didn't Understand Lyrics

Last updated: 07/23/2008 11:00:00 AM

Thought you'd be looking for the next in line to love
Then ignore, put out, and put away
And so you'd soon be leaving me alone like I'm supposed to be
Tonight, tomorrow, and every day
There's nothing here that you'll miss
I can guarantee you this is a cloud of smoke
Trying to occupy space
What a fucking joke
What a fucking joke

I waited for a bus to separate the both of us
And take me off, far away from you
'Cos my feelings never change a bit
I always feel like shit
I don't know why, I guess that I just do
You once talked to me about love
And you painted pictures of a never never land
And I could have gone to that place
But I didn't understand
I didn't understand
I didn't understand

Thanks to for submitting I Didn't Understand Lyrics.

Whether the acoustic or the original version this sentiment of breaking up is the epitome. Pure and without any self-confidence it describes any disconnection from a part of the soul that has been with you. Kudos to the dearly departed. There wil never be any other like you.
