    Song Lyrics / J / Jeff Buckley / People's Parties Lyrics
    (j.mitchell)
    Originally performed by joni mitchell. jeff performed it live at sin-?, new york, late in the night on december 31 1995.
    All the people at this party
    They've got a lot of style
    They've got stamps of many countries
    They've got passport smiles
    Some are friendly
    Some are cutting
    Some are watching it from the wings
    Some are standing in the centre
    Giving to get something

    Photo beauty gets attention
    Then her eye paint's running down
    She's got a rose in her teeth
    And a lampshade crown
    One minute she's so happy
    Then she's crying on someone's knee
    Saying laughing and crying
    You know it's the same release

    I told you when i met you
    I was crazy
    Cry for us all beauty
    Cry for eddie in the corner
    Thinking he's nobody
    And jack behind his joker
    And stone-cold grace behind her fan
    And me in my frightened silence
    Thinking i don't understand

    I feel like i'm sleeping
    Can you wake me
    You seem to have a broader sensibility
    I'm just living on nerves and feelings
    With a weak and a lazy mind
    And coming to peoples parties
    Fumbling deaf dumb and blind

    I wish i had more sense of humor
    Keeping the sadness at bay
    Throwing the lightness on these things
    Laughing it all away
    Laughing it all away
    Laughing it all away
