The Airborne Toxic Event Elizabeth Lyrics

There’s a distance in your eyes

That’s why a smile is always such a surprise

When you call and you talk to me

I wonder which person you’re gonna be

She said, all your songs are sad songs

Why do you always have to see the worst of it

Could you write me just one love song?

Put my name somewhere in the middle of it

It’s not hard to write Elizabeth

Just close your eyes boy and take your best guess

Cause the truth is hard, isn’t it?

She said “I’ll be listening in my favorite white dress”

All these quiet afternoons

She said, “I wonder if I’ve given up my love too soon”

As her hair fell from her curls

I said you’re pretty uptight for a Mexican Girl

She said, all your songs are sad songs

Why do you always have to make me feel like shit?

Could you write me just one love song?

And put my name somewhere in the middle of it

And if you call the song Elizabeth

All my friends will know it’s about me

Cause the truth is hard, isn’t it?

But don’t take too long, I just know you’ll come back to me

I said all these songs are love songs

Just love at times can make you feel like shit

So you write a string of words down

It’s better if there’s some truth in it

It’s true I love you Elizabeth

I love the way you move in that silly white dress

Cause the truth is hard to admit

I’ve never known love

This is just my best guess
