Saw you layin' under my car, but you took it too far
Don't you know
Held your hand, well I knew you slipped away
Watched your eyes, turn to grey, in mine
But you're still lingering
I see it somehow
You know what I mean, don't you
Don't you
Say what you mean
I've said it so well
Me and my own
I still, but you're damned
My eyes are crying, as you slip from my view
I guess you know it, I feel for you
Yes I do
Saw you layin under my car, but you took it too far
Don't you know
Held your hand, as you, slipped away
Watched your eyes turn to grey tonight
Me, I'm alone
I'm just driving away, from the side of you laying in death
Goodbye before I cry
I know you feel for me too
And I do
But it's the end
Goodbye my friend

    This is an obscure Mazzy Star song and perhaps not many people have heard it.

    I think the narrator is expressing her guilt and condemning herself for her role in her friend's descent into drug addiction that will ultimately lead (either literally or metaphorically) to the friend's death. Another interpretation could be that the narrator was the cause of the friend's death from a disease such as AIDS.

    I never knew this song existed until I saw its title on this website. Turns out it’s only found on some versions of the single version “fade into you” Consider yourself lucky if you own this one :)
