She's a true original
Not some store bought rebel
She can find her own way home
You just have to let her

[Chorus:]
Whichever path she finds,
It's hers to take
And if she says she's fine
You just have to wait for her

She's an artist in the world
She composes from the heart
The finish on he's always there
Well before she starts

And any time she might
Get the words wrong
You just turn it up and you
You sing along with her

And if a gun was pointed at her
I would stand between the bullet and her
And if not being with me is what makes her happy
I'd take that bullet too

[Chorus:]
Whichever path she finds,
It's hers to take
And if she says she's fine
I just have to wait for her

She's a true original.

Have to mark this one down somewhat. I do love the Eels, but sometimes, they are a one trick pony.
This is so much like so many of their songs - and as such, lacks depth. It's an afterthought of a song.

Wow.  Totally depressing on a bunch of levels.  But I kinda like it.
I get it.
A series on songs on the decending chord progression akin to Strawberry Fields.
Sweet timeless melodies.
RP Taste Forever!

Hmmm. Not quite the high energy of previous Eel tracks. But it's original.
I don't know whether to love this song or hate it.
Shit. Not the song, the situation it reminds me of.
