Today's Lyric of the Day comes from his song, "Between the Bars."
"People you've been before
That you don't want around anymore
That push and shove and bend to your will
I'll keep them still"
What voice could be as sweet and natural as Elliott Smith's?
Elliott Smith died in 2003. After an argument with his girlfriend, Smith stabbed himself twice in the chest. He left a simple note:
"I'm so sorry--love, Elliott. God forgive me."
Heaven Adores You.
