"I Figured You Out"

Mary Lou Lord saved this Elliott Smith song from the trash. Her version is achingly sweet and his is just plain heartbreaking. Who hasn't felt this before?

Elliott Smith, Nick Drake, Tim and Jeff Buckley. So many achingly brilliant song writers cut down in their prime. I love their songs but also weep every time I hear them. Does brilliance drive one to an early grave? If so, I'll live to be 135.
