DO I KNOW YOU?

Click Here for MP3 Listening

Do I know you?
You look so familiar
Did I have you over for dinner
A couple years ago
Do I know you? I think I do
Ah, but really, what do I know?

Why do I come back here
To this dimly lit old place
When I know that there's a chance in hell
That I'll see your ugly face
Alright you're not that ugly
At least not on the outside
I guess it must be the good stiff drinks
That the barmaids always provide

Do I know you?
You look so familiar
Did I have you over for dinner
A couple years ago
Do I know you? I think I do
Ah, but really, what do I know?

I'm staring into neon
The side that looks all charred
And thru that window into the night
Where the wind is whipping so hard
And the wind of course is like you and me
Blowing opportunities away
But I'm safe and sound now, here in the bar
Unless you decide to stay

You can roll thru what seems like a lifetime
And work so many things through
Then you find the wonderful person, you've shared all this great stuff with
Is not the one you thought
You knew

Do I know you?
You look so familiar
Did I have you over for dinner
A couple years in a row
Do I know you? I think I do
Ah, but really, what do I know?
What do I know?
