If You Know Me

lyrics

In the failing light,
I have to squint my eyes,
And listen quiet.

Have to stay away,
Just to stay awake,
I stay inside.

But I don’t really care,
If I know where I am.
Find it on a map.
Write it down with a pen.
Feel it with your hands out in front.
If you lose your sight go out and find it.

If you know me,
I won’t be pretending at all.
If you know me, (In the failing light,)
I won’t be, (I can see your eyes,)
Pretending, (As they seem to glow.)
At all.

But I don’t really care,
If I know where I am.
Find it on a map.
Write it down with a pen.
Feel it with your hands out in front.
If you lose your sight go out and find it.

I don’t need to wait,
Don’t need to wait up.
I don’t keep pace or care if I’ve won.
I don’t need to see,
Don’t need to be seen.
I don’t hold hands with everyone.
I don’t need to save.
I don’t need to be saved.
Don’t need to taste what’s put on my tongue.

And I don’t have to insist,
(I don’t need it.)
And I don’t like to resist.
(I don’t feel it.)

It’s best to behave as people should,
Stay away and stay awake,
To stay the night to meet the next day.

But I don’t really care,
If I know where I am.
Find it on a map.
Write it down with a pen.
See it in your head, keep it.
Make believe you have succeeded.
And try to feel it with your hands out in front.
If you lose your sight go out and find it.
