Last Call

This song is by Elliott Smith and appears on the album Roman Candle (1994).

Last call; he was sick of it all; asleep at home
Told you off and goodbye

Oh, you know, one day it'll come to haunt you that you didn't tell him quite the truth
You're a crisis, you're an icicle, you're a tongueless talker, you don't care what you say
You're a jaywalker and you just, just walk away. And that's all you do
The clap of the fading-out sound of your shoes
Made him wonder who he thought that he knew

Last call; he was sick of it all
The endless stream of reminders made him so sick of you, sick of you, sick of you, sick of your sound
Sick of you comin' around

Tryin'a crawl under my skin when I already shed my best defence
It comes out all around that you won, and I think I'm all done. You can switch me off safely
While I'm lying here waiting for sleep to overtake me

Yeah, you're still here but just check to make sure. All you aspire to do is endure
You can't ask for more, ask for more, knowing you'll never get that which you ask for
So you cast your shadow everywhere like the man in the moon

You start to drink, and just wanna continue. It'll all be yesteryear soon
Start to drink, and just want to continue. It'll all be yesteryear soon

Church bells and now I'm awake, and I guess it must be some kind of holiday
I can't seem to join in this celebration
But I'll go to the service, and I'll go to pray, and I'll sing the praises in my maker's name
Like I was as good as she made me

And I wanted her to tell me that she would never wake me, I wanted her to tell me that she would never wake me
I wanted her to tell me that she would never wake me, I wanted her to tell me that she would never wake me
I wanted her to tell me that she would never wake me, I wanted her to tell me that she would never wake me
I wanted her to tell me that she would never wake me, I wanted her to tell me that she would never wake me
I'm lying here waiting for sleep to overtake me
