Eels - A Good Deal Lyrics



My plan to play it cool
Has not been going well
I have such a hard time
Keeping the anger hidden

I've run it through my head
A dozen times or more
And each time it ends with me
Not acting as I did

A grievous oversight that I cannot erase
You couldn't know where to take it to
And none of it matters now
However I appeal
All of it's gone
I've missed a good deal

You disappointed me
In ways I cannot count
But you were the best thing
To happen to me

And that is no reason to
Forget all that you've done
I couldn't expect you to
Give credence to my plea

A grievous oversight that I cannot erase
You couldn't know where to take it to
And none of it matters now
However I may feel
All of it's gone
I've missed a good deal

An effortless beauty I had not come across
It's a heavy loss
And now it's my cross to bear forever more
I can be sure

And nothing else matters now
Whatever I reveal
All of it's gone
I've missed a good deal

    My plan to play it cool
    Has not been going well
    I have such a hard time
    Keeping the anger hidden

    I've run it through my head
    A dozen times or more
    And each time it ends with me
    Not acting as I did

    A grievous oversight that I cannot erase
    You couldn't know where to take it to
    And none of it matters now
    However I appeal
    All of it's gone
    I've missed a good deal

    You disappointed me
    In ways I cannot count
    But you were the best thing
    To happen to me

    And that is no reason to
    Forget all that you've done
    I couldn't expect you to
    Give credence to my plea

    A grievous oversight that I cannot erase
    You couldn't know where to take it to
    And none of it matters now
    However I may feel
    All of it's gone
    I've missed a good deal

    An effortless beauty I had not come across
    It's a heavy loss
    And now it's my cross to bear forever more
    I can be sure

    And nothing else matters now
    Whatever I reveal
    All of it's gone
    I've missed a good deal
