Day Twenty-Three - Favorite lyric from a favorite song
Elliott Smith - Angeles
Hey, remember when we were talking about favorite lyrics? Come to think of it, remember when I was talking about 31DaysOfMusic at all? Yes, I have been neglecting this meme tremendously lately. I don’t know if it’s been Thanksgiving, or lack of creativity or the fact that 31DaysofMusic keeps asking me the same questions (it does) but I’m hurting over here. However, I’m trying to get back on board last minute, with my goal being to post, my last post, on time, with everyone else, hopefully. With that said, while catching up, some posts might lack some… Pazazz!
Anyway, about my favorite lyric, I think I was getting stuck on this one because I really didn’t want to do two things. One, post another Elliot Smith song. And, two, post an Elliott Smith song that I had already posted. But, since I’ve gone a week without posting I guess I’ve failed at blogging (thus, at life) and all rules are out the window. Therefore, my favorite lyric is below from the song, “Angeles” by Elliott Smith.
I could make you satisfied in everything you do
All your secret wishes could right now be coming true
I know Elliott Smith doesn’t do it for a lot of you, and I get that. I know he can be just too Elliott Smith for people. But, what I can I say? He just hurts so good. Like this lyric. It’s so pathetic and so beautiful and I love it and I love you and why won’t you just let me love you dammit!!?
