Something to Do with You

notes:
The streetlights go out when I walk underneath
Think someone is following me
Look back and there's nobody there
Just a wisp of mist, a disturbance in the air

Pull my hoodie up and try to think
There's got to be a missing link
A breadcrumb to start me on my way
Always something I forgot to say

I talk to people who want me to
Try to remember the things I knew
Don't understand what I need to do
Think it had something to do with you

Got two IDs, don't know which is me
Got two brass keys and no history
Got two memories, don't know which is real
Got two miseries, don't know which to feel

Turn the corner and I see a guy
Cross the street and walk on by
Hear footsteps coming from behind
Gotta figure it out, gotta clear my mind

Go into a bar too many people around
Go out the back, get away from the sound
A sharp pain, it all goes black
Everything comes rushing back

The deprivation, the man in the suit
The woman's perfume like exotic fruit
The drugs, the silence, the gun to the head
My feet are cotton, my eyes are lead

Wake up in the alley, grate belching steam
Memories flying like a fading dream
Try my best to hold the thread
But the candle's snuffed, the lights are dead

I talk to people who want me to
Try to remember the things I knew
Don't understand what I need to do
Think it had something to do with you

Blood on my sleeve, don't know if it's mine
There's no reprieve, I'm in decline
Stagger to the street and turn to the west
Really need to get some rest

Then I see you and something clicks
Maybe my brain is playing tricks, cause
I've never met you but I know you well
Maybe this is actually hell

My name is Dante and I'm on a trip
But St. Lucia's given me the slip
Fall into step thirty paces behind
Don't know why, another answer to find

You go into a building and lock the door
It feels like I've been here before
Cops drive by, I stop and freeze
Then I remember I've got two keys

I talk to people who want me to
Remember things I'm supposed to do
It's all a blur but I've got a clue
Think it's got something to do with you

I talk to people who want me to
Remember things I'm supposed to do
It's all a blur but one thing rings true
Know it's got something to do with you
