Two jumps in a week,
I bet you think that's pretty clever don't you boy?
Flying on your motorcycle,
watching all the ground beneath you drop
You'd kill yourself for recognition,
kill yourself to never, ever stop
You broke another mirror,
you're turning into something you are not

Don't leave me high, don't leave me dry
Don't leave me high, don't leave me dry

Drying up in conversation,
you'll be the one who cannot talk
All your insides fall to pieces,
you just sit there wishing you could still make love
They're the ones who'll hate you
when you think you've got the world all sussed out
They're the ones who'll spit on you,
you'll be the one screaming out

Don't leave me high, don't leave me dry
Don't leave me high, don't leave me dry

Oh, it's the best thing that you ever had,
the best thing that you ever, ever had.
It's the best thing that you ever had,
the best thing you have had has gone away.

Don't leave me high, don't leave me dry
Don't leave me high, don't leave me dry
Don't leave me high,
Don't leave me high, don't leave me dry

    General CommentI have heard Something Corporate do this song, they do a good job at it. I actually didn't know that it was a Radiohead song then though.

    General CommentThe only place I've heard SC perform this song is during their AOL session (downloaded from kazaa). I think Andrew did a great job (I especially love how he sang "don't leave me high, don't leave me dry"). actually, the whole band covered the song well, but of course since it is a cover the original's better. it's what got me into radiohead

    General Commentandrew does such a good job singing this cover. if you watch the AOL sessions, you can see the emotion he puts into it, just like he does with all of his songs. if anyone cares or wants to hear this song, fast forward about 12 minutes into the AOL sessions... or just watch the whole thing.
