Yes, it's an Am7 chord opening in both tunes, strummed in a similar manner, though this song is at a different tempo.

Wondered the same ever since I heard ES for the first time here, and several others, for that matter. They were just really good (he, especially) and knowing that this is "all she wrote" makes it all the more poignant, methinks. But really love ES.

For anyone that has had a problem with the bottle this song is about as honest as it comes. Quite a poetic description of becoming an alcoholic. drink up, baby, stay up all night
the things you could do, you won't but you might
the potential you'll be, that you'll never see
the promises you'll only make drink up with me now and forget all about the pressure of days
do what I say and I'll make you okay and drive them away
the images stuck in your head people you've been before that you don't want around anymore
that push and shove and won't bend to your will
I'll keep them still drink up, baby, look at the stars
I'll kiss you again between the bars where I'm seeing you
there with your hands in the air, waiting to finally be caught drink up one more time and I'll make you mine
keep you apart deep in my heart separate from the rest
where I like you the best and keep the things you forgot the people you've been before that you don't want around anymore
that push and shove and won't bend to your will
I'll keep them still

The comment kind of just came out; I thought "Maybe I should delete this?"

I mostly say what I mean...funny how things can be perceived as rudeness, sarcasm, innuendo or wit when you're just saying what you mean: sort of like that Peter Seller's movie "Being There."

Man, this dude breaks my heart every time...first couple chords of any song of his and it's like a tractor beam into a base sadness that exists deep inside of my being.  I used to be a sad person, and have since learned that life is a symphony; with point and counterpoint, ecstacy and grief, hopefulness and despairing, triumph and failure...all used in movements and proportions that bring our days and nights alive with color. 

In spite of all the blessings that my life today is filled with, the music of E.S. can without fail bring a lump in my throat, a weight in my chest, and an almost insatiable desire to weep...but not because it makes me sad - more because it makes me feel almost overwhelmed with joy.  He slays me.  His music, for me is that intensely beautiful. 

I feel that my life has been enriched by Elliot's sound; as well the sounds of others like Brian Wilson, Nick Drake, John Lennon, James Taylor, Tom Petty, Chris Robinson, and Billie Holiday to name a very very few.

Thanks RP, for providing a soundtrack to all of our lives.

Wow, if this hadn't played just now while I was listening (its been a while), and if I hadn't checked this song specifically, and seen a comment from a year ago that seemed kind of unusual - until I realized that I had written it - then I might never have remembered my RP username.  I'm not sure whether to call it a senior moment, a synchronicity, or just random witlessness.

Metric, Emily Haines  - "Between The Bars" Live Acoustic


"but maybe a few people will see this and look for the original and see something really, really good"

"I think she could've done better, I mean she's a talented woman after all. Still, it's hard to capture the sadness and the beauty of the original... you hear the very first notes of Elliott playing it and it inmediatly feels like your heart is breaking. Still, nice to see her remembering Elliott. We all miss him."
