lyrics

I DON’T KNOW
______________

[DAVE]
This is Ghost Quartet. Side 1, Track 1. “I Don’t Know.”

[ALL]
NOW I DON’T KNOW
BUT I’VE BEEN TOLD
AND THAT’S TRUE OF EVERYTHING I THINK I KNOW
EVERYTHING I THINK
THAT I DON’T KNOW
BUT I’VE BEEN TOLD
YES I’VE BEEN TOLD

[GELSEY]
I DON’T EVEN KNOW HOW TO BEGIN

[BRITTAIN]
I DON’T EVEN KNOW WHO I AM
I’M NOT HERE

[BOTH]
NO ONE IS HERE

[BRITTAIN]
I STAY AWAKE MOST EVERY NIGHT
WAITING FOR A GLIMPSE TO APPEAR

[BOTH]
WHERE’S MY GHOST IN THE MIRROR
I WANT ONE TOO

[ALL]
I’VE GOT A THOUSAND ONE STORIES
EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM’S A LIE

LET ME READ YOU A STORY
LET ME READ YOU A ROMANCE
I WILL READ, YOU WILL LISTEN
AND THIS TERRIBLE NIGHT WILL PASS

WHEN I WAS A CHILD I USED TO PLAY
PLAY WITH ALL THE VOICES IN MY HEAD
LONG LONG AGO
THAT’S NOT ME ANYMORE

NOW I RIDE THE SUBWAY EVERY NIGHT
STARING AT THE GAME ON MY PHONE
KEEP MY HEAD DOWN
I’M ALL ALONE

[DAVE & BRENT]
I DON’T KNOW IF THIS ME AT ALL
OR JUST SOME GHOST OF ME
THAT I DREAMED UP
JUST TO SING MYSELF TO SLEEP

[BRITTAIN]
OR SOMEONE THAT I USED TO BE
OR SOMEONE THAT I WILL BE
OR SOMEONE THAT I AM RIGHT NOW

[ALL]
OR SOMEONE THAT I USED TO BE
OR SOMEONE THAT I WILL BE
OR SOMEONE THAT I AM RIGHT NOW
OR SOMEONE THAT I USED TO BE
OR SOMEONE THAT I WILL BE
OR SOMEONE THAT I AM RIGHT NOW
