Agatha Chang
by Eels

Album: The Cautionary Tales of Mark Oliver Everett (2014)
  • Agatha was beautiful
    Her long, black hair and aching eyes
    Even when she didn't feel so good
    She look alright
    She always had her smile
    And it was good for a while

    I wouldn't answer each time the phone rang
    But I should've stayed with agatha chang

    Agatha, she wasn't mean
    She didn't cheat, she never lied
    Even if she disagreed with you
    It wasn't a fight
    Made you feel like you're both right
    But then I lost sight

    I couldn't bear to break up my old gang
    But I should've stayed with agatha chang

    What was so important then?
    I haven't a clue
    How could I have been so blind and cruel?

    Agatha, where did you go?
    Do I have the slightest chance?
    I could make up for everything that I did wrong
    But I know it's just a song
    And you're probably long gone

    Forgot all about her each night that I sang
    But I should've stayed with agatha chang Writer/s: MARK O. EVERETT
