Elliott Smith - No Name No. 5 Lyrics




Got bitten fingernails and a head full of the past
And everybody's gone at last
Sweet, sweet smile that's fading fast
'Cos everybody's gone at last
Don't get upset about it
No not anymore
There's nothing wrong that wasn't wrong before
Had a second alone with a chance let pass
And everybody's gone at last

Well I hope you're not waiting
Waiting 'round for me
'Cos I'm not going anywhere, obviously
Got a broken heart and your name on my cast
And everybody's gone at last
Everybody's gone at last

    I had forgotten about this song. It was one of my favorites years ago. Its so much more meaningful now than it used to be.

    I met the girl of my dreams the day when I first heard this album. Now she is gone forever and there is nothing I can do but wallow in alcohol. And she doesn't give half a shit. I miss you and I'm not going anywhere obviously.

    Jarrett Thomas

    Kevin Thomas it wasn't meant to be man. Gotta move on. Be strong. There's another one out there, and you'll miss her if you just give up and feel sorry for yourself. Good luck man

    Kevin Thomas

    @Jarrett Thomas Hey Thanks. Since I made that comment I have realized I have been killing myself for years. I'm going through a lot of shit, but I'm trying to get better now. Your comment is exactly my thought process recently. Either I give up, lay down and die, or I try to change the things I can change. It might take awhile but hopefully it will work out in the end.

  13. Jesus Hernandez

    Too much meaning in this piece to be represented through a name or title

  14. Roiy Benkel

    Got bitten fingernails and a head full of the past
    And everybody's gone at last
    A sweet sweet smile that's fading fast
    Cause everybody's gone at last
    And you don't get upset about it
    No not anymore
    There's nothing wrong
    That wasn't wrong before
    Had a second alone with a chance let pass
    And everybody's gone at last
    Well I hope you're not waiting
    Waiting around for me
    Because I'm not going anywhere
    Obviously
    Got a broken heart and your name on my cast
    And everybody's gone at last
    Everybody's gone at last

  15. blake89

    happy birthday dear elliott.

  16. TheGreaterGood80

    Very Led Zeppelin-influenced guitar. Elliot was a fan of Jimmy Page

    jmrbug 96

    Jimmy Page is hands down my favorite guitarist of all time. He is the reason I ever picked up and learned guitar. Elliott has great taste.

  17. chreeschaan

    "hope you're not waiting, waiting 'round for me..
    cause i'm not going anywhere, obviously..." thanks for saying what we couldn't

  18. Nathaniel D Musso

    Ted

    Not many modern day musicians deserve to be called composers. Elliott exemplifies the title.

  25. Regie Bravo

    ah, it does feel sort of weird seeing new people enjoy elliott smith.
    you should all check out heaven adores you, it's a really cool documentary and has a few unreleased songs.

    fran jaff

    Honestly, I wasn't a huge fan of that documentary. I get that Heatmiser was a big part of his career early on, but for that to still be the focus by the half way point was kind of annoying.

    andrew dyke

    Regie Bravo I've been a fan since this album came out

  26. Æ Kiwi Dan

    Well, I hope you're not waiting,
    Waiting around for me
    Because I'm not going anywhere - obviously,
    Got a broken heart and your name on my cast
    And everybody's gone at last,
    Everybody's gone at last...

    Todd L

    +AshtrayWasp This song's the biggest tearjerker of them all.

    StephenAndrew777

  35. Emma Worthington

    So much meaning. Basically sums up life.

    Bernardo Parra

    Your comment is very accurate :) I love this song, and everytime I hear it, no matter what I'm doing at that particular moment, I sit down and breathe, one of the best songs Elliott ever recorded... and it means a lot to me.

    Dave

    +Bernardo Parra its a great song to listen to when you feel like your life has hit a complete dead end, your in a rut you can't get out of and there's nothing you can do, its kind of a miserable place to be in but i guess listening to the song makes you feel like well as long as i'm here i might as well make the best of it and smile cause someone made a beautiful song to express exactly how i feel about it, i listen to this song whenever i feel like i hit the bottom most point of my life or my week and i actually just kind of smile and feel good about it in a way, its like wow my life feels this fucked up right now but shit i'm still fucking here, im still breathing and all i gotta do is wait for the weekend so i can get a little escape from it.. i dunno it's hard to express exactly what this song does for me, its kind of a theme song for self pity in a way, but you know.. sometimes you just gotta feel sorry for yourself every once in a while if no one else can feel it for you.


    my second favorite line is "dont get upset about it, no not anymore, there's nothing wrong that wasn't wrong before"


    and my first favorite is "hope your not waiting, waiting around for me, because i'm not going anywhere, obviously"


    it's like the biggest, sweetest, most gentle fuck you to the world and everything that got you into the fucked up situation your in, i feel so good when that line comes in, even if it's a miserable description of myself, it's fucking true and sometimes you just gotta say it and admit it just to remind yourself of exactly who and where you are.. i feel like it's easier to recover from it when you can just be honest about it instead of pretending like you don't feel that way

    Bernardo Parra

    +David Vazquez Comepletely agree, It amazing how these songs make you feel good about yourself, even in the worst, most fucked up days! -- That's the magic within Elliott's music.

    Alexander Sahs

    +David Vazquez so well put, David. Thanks for sharing, man. I feel similarly about several of Elliotts Lyrics.
