"Song In The Air" as written by and Steven P. Smith....
They come here alone and they leave in twos
Except for you and me who just came to use
If you're all done like you said you'd be
What are you doing hanging out with me

Why you tell me stuff that's so plainly untrue
If you'll be straight with me, I'll be straighter with you
If you're all done like you said you'd be
What are you doing hanging out with me

I've been wanting to do anything for a long time
But whatever you got right now will probably suit me fine
If you're all done like you said you'd be
What are you doing hanging out with me

I've been wanting to do anything for a long time
Whatever you're doing now would probably suit me fine
If you're all done like you said you'd be
What are you doing hanging out with me
What are you doing hanging out with me

    General Commenti have one correction to one of the most beautiful songs ive ever hears. It is "Show that sparkles last."

    General Commenti'd say these lyrics are perfect. especially that heartwrenching last revelation; "maybe you're the same without me". i miss these guys...

    last christmas, i heard something about a elliott dvd in production. it was gonna be live vidoes, discarded songs, behind the scenes footage and whatnot. but i guess it went to nothing =(

    General CommentThis song is gutwrenching. One of the best Elliott songs I've ever heard. I can't think of a better farewell to the fans than this CD, and this song. The DVD was completed, I'm waiting on my copy to arrive now. You can buy it on Spun.com for about $12.
