Elliott Smith - Twilight Lyrics




Haven't laughed this hard in a long time
I better stop now before I start crying
Go off to sleep in the sunshine
I don't want to see the day when it's dying
She's a sight to see
She's good to me
But I'm already somebody's baby
She's a pretty thing
And she knows everything
But I'm already somebody's baby
You don't deserve to be lonely
But those drugs you've got won't make you feel better
Pretty soon you'll find it's the only
Little part of your life you're keeping together
I'm nice to you
I could make it through
But you're already somebody's baby
I could make you smile
If you stayed a while
But how long will you stay with me, baby?
Because your candle burns too bright
Well I almost forgot it was twilight
Even if I think that you are right
Well I'm tired of being down, I got no fight
You're wonderful
And it's beautiful
But I'm already somebody's baby
And if I went with you
I'd disappoint you too
Well I'm already somebody's baby
Already somebody's baby

  1. Lost Halo

    "Twilight"

    Haven't laughed this hard in a long time
    I better stop now before I start crying
    Go off to sleep in the sunshine
    I don't want to see the day when it's dying
    She's a sight to see
    She's good to me
    But I'm already somebody's baby
    She's a pretty thing
    And she knows everything
    But I'm already somebody's baby
    You don't deserve to be lonely
    But those drugs you've got won't make you feel better
    Pretty soon you'll find it's the only
    Little part of your life you're keeping together
    I'm nice to you
    I could make it through
    But you're already somebody's baby
    I could make you smile
    If you stayed a while
    But how long will you stay with me, baby?
    Because your candle burns too bright
    Well I almost forgot it was twilight
    Even if I think that you are right
    Well I'm tired of being down, I got no fight
    You're wonderful
    And it's beautiful
    But I'm already somebody's baby
    And if I went with you
    I'd disappoint you too
    Well I'm already somebody's baby
    Already somebody's baby

  2. akmal

    Legit thought that third phrase are one of genius saddest lyric ever wrote.

  3. Clarence Ohryyyon

    Mood today.

  4. blahblah24681357

    sometimes it just feels so hopeless

  5. NorasWorld

    This is helping me through a panic attack right now.
    My head is spinning and my heart is racing but this is making it better.

  6. LastPhoenix

    I came here to listen to the song, I stayed here to read all the sad, amazing, deep comments!

  7. xTroop18546x

    Delaney!

  8. bungee

    you can noodle around on a guitar all day long...but this dudes rythym is out of this world

  9. Dr Drai

    Happy New Years to anyone reading this. I hope 2020 is good to you.

  10. donnie buritto

    Everything is better now. We have a nice house. A new car. I'm even getting my own tv for Christmas. It's every thing I ever wanted, so I should be happy.
    But I still feel so baron and empty. Maybe somewhere along the way the sadness and dipoinment became apart of me.

  11. John Isaacs

    The most bitter sweet, soul rendering music lies in the depths of E.S

  12. Willy Word

    Is what it is

  13. Danny Russell

    One of the most beautiful songs ever written with an incredibly strange strumming pattern

  14. Theodore J Mariner

    Absolutely amazing. I miss Elliott Smith so much

  15. Rafaela da Silva Melo

    🙁🎧

  16. Thelonious Coltrane

    2019
    Almost all of Elliott's lyrics are deep as philosophy and disturbing as psychology.

    Michelle Perez

    I get it I listen to him all the time. Could you imagine what he could do nowadays?!

  17. frank wallop

    These guys I jammed with in St christophers rehab did a killer covering this. It was one of the best things I remember. Thomas on guitar and vox and Frank I believe on drums. He beat the ever loving shit out of the drums man. And they really turned up the intensity and made this song really heavier and groovy. If anybody from sci around 2016 2018 era was there lmk! I played guitar in an coffee house show we did hotel California for Janet the kitchen supervisor

  18. J Lansdale

    One of his best concertos

  19. K Yowo

    *Magnífica*

  20. Doron Goldfarb

    wabalabadubdub!


    im tiny rickkkk!!!

  21. SOCIETYDWELLIN GIFD

    *_He sounds like Scott Weiland a little or vice versa_*

  22. Ash McCash

    He left me heroin...he would always play this for me....I should have listened better...

  23. angel1329us

    This is beautiful.

  24. Kevin Stockdill

  27. Baki XB

  28. Captain Charisma

  29. byegone

  30. I'm making a movie

    Coin SI:7 on turn 2 xD

  31. Jim Baily

    I like to think that this is how my wife feels inside when her depression takes over

  32. Noneyalls Biddness

    Google is a Fascists company hell bent on the domination of the human race. Every "liberal" idea is flawed. They've all failed.
    Counter argument....Most the best ideas/programs of the last hundred years were Democratic ideas. Ok...well then why was America never great and why does it suck so bad? Even the counter argument is flawed logic. I respectfully say Fuck the DNC, Fuck corporate sensorship and Fuck Google. Either stay out of my phone's calls ie Internet chatter like you claimed/promised to, as a public utility is supposed to act. I honestly believe your executives need to be jailed/tried for treason. If you have a problem with this...Bare in mind generation are less frequently associating with other people in public spaces...Maybe not the entire internet has become a public space but YouTube, Facebook Twitter ect.....most certainly has. Plus they stated...Not the government, Not the public... Google started that they would not regulate speech on their platform. Just like your phone provider doesn't regular your speech. They need to be held accountable. Respectfully....Hey I guess I shouldn't complain too much. I bet Stalin didn't ask nicely. If only Hitler had had some manners...smh....

  33. Les Diquens

    Fuck. Haven't heard this song in a long time but tonight I feel exactly like this.

  34. astrid vvv

    I just listened to this for the first time in a few years and it made me feel so gut wrenchingly nostalgic but in a sweet way. It's like it made it apparent that my life used to be as real then as it is now, and I really felt it to be true. And in those moments it made everything feel cohesive. And I felt like I was walking drunk with my friends through subdivisions at night again.

    Then I looked up through my sunroof at the moon above me in the morning light and I wanted to cry.

  35. lil vinc

    1:56 waka waaaaa

  36. Ebbtide42

    haven't listened to this song in a long time i better stop now before i start crying

  37. Smile

  38. Eamon Doyle

  39. willard ferguson

    "Those drugs you got won't make you feel better"

    If only he took his own advice...
    Rest in peace John.

  43. lanna L

    I’m actually crying here .Thank you Elliott.

  44. Kris Frederick

    Been there. What a shitty feeling. Already have something good, could have something great, could lose everything, hurt someone else, and end up alone with regret. I forgot about this song, but when I heard it the first time in 2003 on college radio I said damnit, that's what's going on here.

  45. Bashful Wolfo

    I lost my dad on March 19, 2019 due to a fatal car crash. His favorite singer was Elliott Smith. My mom told me when they first met, he was already in a relationship. Then my mom was in a relationship when he wasn't, and it was back and forth, so this song reminds my mom so much of my dad.
    He was also in bands such as Murder Bay and Flood, and worked as key grip for movies and shows, the most recent being Fear the Walking Dead. I never met anyone who was more amazing than my dad was, and he was my idol and hero.

    P C

    Bashful Wolfo sorry for your loss, keep your dad in your spirits

    Daisy X

    Bashful Wolfo I’m so extremely sorry for your loss.... my husband lost his father suddenly years ago and as bad as a relationship I have with my father I couldn’t imagine losing him.. none the less having a father that you looked up to. I wish you peace of mind and hope things are working out for you.

  46. ilovebjork somuch

    I love u Elliot almost as much as Björk

  47. darren henifin

    I swear 100,000 of the 2.8 mill views are mine.

  48. wizzy

    How can addiction and total awareness come together like this?

  49. Mark Harris

    Another great song by the great man! Top Elliott

  50. Reece Burton

    it's been 14 years since I heard pretty ugly on radio in England I can't listen to much eles as it's perfect .you melody maker
    you were the head and shoulders above anyone I mean anyone

  51. Sophie Sakura

    I love my boyfriend but I also love crack

  52. guitarbaseballguy16

    this is the most beautiful song ever written

  53. Sigurd2020

    His baby is his depression, and then he sees he can overcome it and realizes her baby is her depression. And around it goes

    Dillon Morris

    The second verse is from the girls point of view

  54. Georgia Buterakos

    Love playing and singing this song <3

  55. Lucas Pfaff

    Haven't cried this hard in a long time. Should I stop now before I start laughing?

  56. puar

    anyone else find themselves listening to this while in withdrawal? again and again...

  57. cultofthorn 666

    This song is about not being able to get into a relationship because of your addiction, not depression.

  58. TheHalliday123456789

    Remember the times we laughed that hard

    kkk kkk

    It was like once for me now sad time has approached...

  59. Manbearpig

    This whole song is hauntingly beautiful, but the interlude at 1:52 always gets me.

  60. Niuto Canoa

    Elliot is a monster composer, we lost a colossal musician.

  61. Mr Sunglasses

    The most talented man in musical history and by many levels

  62. JasonTheWorldisYours

    #RIP from the year 2018

    @Coloredspaces

  63. Rafaela da Silva Melo

    I love your music. Thank you very much. Now I know how I must to be, but it was a mistake.

  64. melissa

    Screw you joey....you really disappointed me.

  65. Jade

    Haven't laughed this hard in a long time
    I better stop now before I start crying
    Go off to sleep in the sunshine
    I don't want to see the day when it's dying
    She's a sight to see, she's good to me
    I'm already somebody's baby
    She's a pretty thing and she knows everything
    But I'm already somebody's baby
    You don't deserve to be lonely
    But those drugs you got won't make you feel better
    Pretty soon you'll find it's the only
    Little part of your life you're keeping together
    I'm nice to you, I could make it through
    That you're already somebody's baby
    I could make you smile if you stayed a while
    But how long will you stay with me baby
    Because your candle burns too bright
    Well, I almost forgot it was twilight
    Even if I think that you are right
    Well, I'm tired of being down, I got no fight
    You're wonderful, when it's beautiful
    But I'm already somebody's baby
    And if I went with you I'd disappoint you too
    Well, I'm already somebody's baby
    Already somebody's baby

  66. TunaMi

    love the natures sound in the background. I feel like hes in a forest or sth and singing in the twilight

  67. Marian M

    He sounds like Rivers Cuomo

  68. Berik Von Dread

    First time I've heard this but it describes my own self sabbatical sabotage on every relationship I've endured.

  69. MegaZ

    this is some fucked up music

  70. Otofu Tofu

    My baby Chriss said that this is my theme song

  71. dontwanttono

    Pretty soon you'll find it's the only little part of your life you're keeping together...

  77. Cameron Sharples

    I miss tania

  78. Ken P.

    I miss you every day Syl.. life just isn’t the same without you.

  79. Juan Gutierrez

    I love Elliot's music, you can hear the pain in his voice, (just like 2pac) and his music helps me get through the day when I'm hungover, just like now!!! RIP Elliott:(

  80. You don't know me.

    This song makes me realize what good music actually sounds like!

  81. João do Dinheirão

  83. Mike Bird

    But how long will you stay with me, baby?

  84. J Chav

    This song is flawless. The melody, lyrics, everything. The raw emotion. The harmony of the vocals are on point. Everything is perfect.

  85. Mike Ramos

    I used to listen to this song every night when I lost everything. I had nothing. No food, no car, no job, rent past due, no significant other, nothing. I still can't believe how I managed to survive that dark and depressing time in my life.

    eric shoff

    shit makes the grass grow.

    Nathan Blades

    Renan Schüller

    Thanks to Elliott

  93. Meegs B

    Please research the flat Earth!

  94. Mike Ramos

    This song reminds me of this beautiful woman I knew. She was absolutely perfect; physically gorgeous, smart, funny, kind -you name it. But she suffered from depression and depended on her meds to "get by" and keep living. Wherever you are, Lin, I sincerely hope you found the happiness that once lived inside you.

    hollowonion
