Things The Grandchildren Should Know Lyrics - Eels

Review The Song (1)



I go to bed real early
Everybody thinks it's strange
I get up early in the morning
No matter how disappointed i was
With the day before
It feels new

I don't leave the house much
I don't like being around people
Makes me nervous and weird
I don't like going to shows either
It's better for me to stay home
Some might think it means i hate people
But that's not quite right

I do some stupid things
But my heart's in the right place
And this i know

sponsored links
I got a dog
I take him for a walk
And all the people like to say hello
I'm used to staring down at the sidewalk cracks
I'm learning how to say hello
Without too much trouble

I'm turning out just like my father
Though i swore i never would
Now i can say that i have a love for him
I never really understood
What it must have been like for him
Living inside his head

I feel like he's here with me now
Even though he's dead

It's not all good and it's not all bad
Don't believe everything you read
I'm the only one who knows what it's like
So i though i'd better tell you
Before i leave

So in the end i'd like to say
That i'm a very thankful man
I tried to make the most of my situations
And enjoy what i had
I knew true love and i knew passion
And the difference between the two
And i had some regrets
But if i had to do it all again
Well, it's something i'd like to do

Heartfelt and tragic | Reviewer: Jerri | 10/6/10

This song is brilliant. To be honest, I was never really a fan of The Eels until I read E's memoir, entitled "Things the Grandchildren Should Know." I read it very quickly, in just a few hours, and I was immediately a fan. I didn't appreciate his style until I discovered what had shaped it and, ultimately, made him who he is. The book is amazing, and you should all pick up a copy if you haven't read it yet. The song is tragic, heartfelt, and, yet, uplifting. The lyrics are beautifully written.
