"Shooting Star" lyrics - ELLIOTT SMITH

"Shooting Star"

You make the scene like you always do
Going upstream down the avenue
To fuck some trophy boy that you won tonight at the bar

So bad, so far
You'll make him sad, shooting star

When it was me I was momentarily proud
Drunk on dreams, now I'm glad I didn't say out loud
You said you'd be for real but I don't believe that you are

So bad, so far
You made me sad, shooting star

You're distant and cold and a sight to behold
Everybody just sighs
No one gets on with you very long
'Cause you don't feel bad when you lie

I'm going to sleep now, going back to find square one
Square two will be where I can deal with the shit you've just done
It won't be soon
To say the least it's gonna be hard

So bad, so far
Your love is sad, shooting star
Your love is sad, shooting star
