Mike's Musical Monday - Say Yes

I was listening to Elliot Smith the other day and this was just too beautiful a tune not to ruin. Or pay homage to. It's a thin line, really.



I'm in love with the world
Through the eyes of a girl
Who's still around the morning after

We broke up a month ago
I grew up I didn't know
I'd be around the morning after

It's always been wait and see
A happy day and then you'll pay
And feel like shit the morning after

But now I feel changed around
And instead of falling down
I'm standing up the morning after

Situations get fucked up
But turned around sooner or later

I could be another fool 
Or an exception to the rule
You tell me the morning after

Crooked spin can't come to rest
I'm damaged bad at best
She'll decide what she wants

I'll probably be the last to know
No one says it 'til it shows
See how it is

They want you or they don't
 
Say yes

I'm in love with the world 
Through the eyes of a girl
Who's still around the morning after
