Have you ever missed someone you have never met before? Perhaps a fictional character you found yourself a little more than fond of, or maybe it is a singer who had a way of singing of feelings you yourself kept locked so deep inside. I feel that way about Elliott Smith, and sometimes when I listen to his music the tears sting my eyes and my throat starts to close. I feel a piece of my heart fracture slightly.
“I’m never gonna know you now,
but I’m gonna love you anyhow.”
Waltz #2 (live) :: Elliott Smith
