It's come and gone
It's a million miles away
That dress she wore
Is all that shall remain
In a clear blue sky
That turns in my memory
But now you find
That things ain't coming
And remain unchanged
Don't push me too far
You won't get anywhere like that
They're going to dry you up
And drown you deep inside
The heroin bag

And it's come and gone
And it's never coming home
Pushed too far
And then you break the tones
And a clear blue sky
Turns in my memory
And now you find
That things ain't coming
They leave you alone
Don't push me too far
You'll never get anywhere like that
They're going to dry you up
And drown you deep inside
The heroin bag

So long now
There's not a flower left in you
It's just your eyes
And now they're made of stone
And a clear blue sky
It turns in my memory
But then you get it on, get it on
And it's right on you own
But don't push me too far
You'll never get anywhere like that
They're going to dry you up
And drown you deep inside
The heroin bag

    General CommentThis is totally NMH's worst song, in my humble opinion! Good thing it wasn't released! The characteristic ability of the rest of Mangum's songs to turn life, death and decay into things of strange beauty, and reveal them fatalistically as but part of the exquisite complexity of existence, is not present in this song. Just depressing... bah! Anyone could write something like this.

    General Commenti don't see how these are possibly 'bad' lyrics.
    it's an early song, one can agree there might not be as much style as later recordings, but it's still very jeff.

    i think it's beautiful, the last verse specifically sounds very mangum-esque.
