Elliott Smith - Between The Bars Lyrics

Drink up baby, stay up all night
With the things you could do
You won't but you might
The potential you'll be
That you'll never see
The promises you'll only make

Drink up with me now
And forget all about
The pressure of days
Do what I say
And I'll make you okay
And drive them away
The images stuck in your head

People you've been before
That you don't want around anymore
That push and shove and won't bend to your will
I'll keep them still

Drink up baby, look at the stars
I'll kiss you again between the bars
Where I'm seeing you there
With your hands in the air
Waiting to finally be caught

Drink up one more time
And I'll make you mine
Keep you apart,
Deep in my heart
Separate from the rest,
Where I like you the best
And keep the things you forgot

The people you've been before
That you don't want around anymore
That push and shove and won't bend to your will
I'll keep them still

    For some reason this speaks to me, a ex-heroin junkie. Especially the; "drink up with me now and forget all about the pressure of days, do what I say and I'll make you okay, drive them away, the images stuck in your head"

    Elliott's genius: this song can be about whatever the listener wants it to be about... that's genius, especially when the lyrics are not ambiguous or cryptic... the song works on many, many levels. It's meta.
