I've been let down
And I still comin' round
I've been put down
And I'm still comin' round for you
Comin' round for you

Take away everything that feels fine
Catch a shape in the circles of my mind
Make me feel like I belong to you
Make me feel even if it ain't true

Catch a train on a silver afternoon
A thousand miles and I'm getting there too soon
Take me there when I should be going home
Tell me why I still feelin' all alone

I've been let down
And I'm still coming round
I've been put down
And I'm still comin' round for you
Comin' round for you

    General CommentLOL-That is Funny jazzy88, I've done the same thing before-it's even funnier knowing the dates are way apart. But, at least you weren't disagreeing with yourself. But yeah this song as well as the whole album is incredible & almost unherad of. When this album first came out I rushed out to get it-too bad it was the last from these guys.

    MemoryMelancholy but transcendent - one of the beautiful gems from this album and this period in Mazzy Star's music. I'm astonished how few comments there have been for this song. It's one of the most transparently honest lyrics from Hope and David. Roback passed away this year but his and Hope's gifts should be cherished in an era when shoegaze and dreampop have seen a resurgence.

    Hope's voice is amazing here "catch a train on a silver afternoon...takes me there when I should be going home" The way she breathes thru the last note "and I'm stilll coming round with you." is haunting.
