"Lisa" as written by and Gustavo Adrian Cerati....
I used to be like her we were one and the same
I used to hold her I used to know her name
Out on the water I feel her once again
I used to be like her I used to call her friend

She was a lost child running way too fast
No matter where she went she could not get away
There's a voice reverberating deep inside my head
Telling me I should have made her stay

'cause now there's no one but me
And I feel the sting

There was a time she was beautiful
She had so much life to give
But now all I remember is the broken shell
I see in my nightmares
I can hardly recognize her

Doesn't it feel good
Doesn't the sting feel good

    General CommentThis song... WOW! Not to mention every time I hear it I think of a long lost ex girlfriend that I just can't come up with the courage to call and see how she's doin', but what a song... I think the song may really be about a friends suicide and the way he felt leading up to it... But if you haven't heard it listen to it...
