"Without You" is a song demo by The Smashing Pumpkins from the Adore-era. It was included on the Adore Demos II bootleg, and was later recorded with the full band during the Machina sessions.

The song is slated to appear on the Machina reissue, with Corgan saying the original master recording of the full band playing live on the floor will be used, with some overdubs for added depth. He added it is difficult to mix because it's "ostensibly a demo" that was "never designed to be released".[1]

Lyrics[edit | edit source]

Let's aim to be
The bumblebees
Let's aim to please
The deep blue seas
The gin wheeze of everything

Without you
Within you
Beside you
Fell into a bad dream
Without you
Without you

Let's aim to see
The deep blue sky
Let's aim to squeeze
The last drops out of life

Without you
Within you
Beside you
Fell into the worst dream
Without you
Without you
