Elliott Smith - High Times Lyrics




Coma kid
Tell me how you come to follow you around where ever you go
Said I don't go, where I'm supposed go
And I don't go, really anywhere you know
Told me how hes driven by a curse, 'til he kicked out into reverse
Said I don't go, where I'm supposed to go
And I don't go, really anywhere you know
I made up my mind, and I don't mind sayin so
I went to meet you at central square
When I couldn't find you there,
I went walking around the city some more
People watching with a cold blank stare
And I saw your face, in everyone I swear
Seems like I never get your kick quite right
I was walking slow to a dirty dive
I'm so sick and tired of trying to change your mind
When it's so easy to disconnect mine
High times
High times
High times, yea I feel fine
High times
High times
High times, man I feel fine
Don't pick me up I'm fine right where I am
I don't go, where I'm supposed go
Where I'm supposed to go

Elliott Smith High Times Comments

    The drugs just don’t work anymore. High times? “I don’t go where I’m supposed to go...”

  2. Liza Hamilton

    I love this album so much,  but I hate the cover design of the CD and the name "new moon." Its clear he died before it was finished- I can't imagine he would have chosen such a corny name and cover for such a gut-wrenching album. It looks like a granny chose this design and name. God bless that fucking man.

    I think it's brightness for being also nighttime was therapeutic at the time, since he'd just died and it shook people's world a bit.

    Josepher yep

    It reminds me of A Starry Night a bit. It's simple though. But corny? How can you even quantify something like that when it's really just subjective?

    Danielle Marin

    @Josepher yep Thank you for putting that into words for me. It's been bugging me for quite a while as to what this cover reminded me - that is EXACTLY what it reminds me of!

    Danielle Marin

    Very well said!

    Josepher yep

    @Danielle MarinOf course, I'm glad! It's nice to know someone else sees something the same way :)

    that lyric, "said I don't go where I'm supposed to go, no I don't go, really, anywhere you know..." the way its sung, it just hits you so hard.. How do you do that? Elliott had something so special. NO ONE, has been able to make such beautiful, yet haunting hooks. Keep in mind this is a throwaway song in his eyes, yet a lot of artist would have LOVED to write this. The exit of this song ALWAYS gives me chills, you can seriously feel pain in that last repeat of the chorus.

    Liam Stabeno

    He speaks his truth

    Juan Perez

    I would loved to write this song for real.. If i had written it, id probably think or it would probably be the best song i would have ever written or will ever would have written. But im not jealous of Elliott... He's giving me a.lot of solace through out the years with his songs. Miss him bad

    David Lashner

    Elliot radiates*ed vibes like none other
