and i saw right through
and though i knew
you know it suits me well
i wait for you
i dream about you

you know it suits me well
bound by your leaving

i'd since forgotten
i knew it then
but then i closed my mind
to the truth, the awful
the awful words

you know my hands are tied
bound by your leaving
you know my hands are tied
wishing you were by my side

you know it suits me well
bound by your leaving
you know my hands are tied
wishing you were by my side

well it seems to show
only when i'm alone
all alone
only when i'm all alone
it suits me well

    General CommentThis song, being the first Pumpkins song, is about Billy's failure with his first band, The Marked. After playing 20 gigs down in Florida, the band came back to Chicago as failures. However, once back there, he met James Iha and thus this song was written as the first Pumpkins song.
