Story

I was feeling lost and lonely and playing some blues riffs on the guitar when these lyrics suddenly came to me. It then took a few hours to hone them.

DON'T KNOW WHERE I AM

Don't know where I am. Don't know where I been.
But I'm on the lam and know, How cold my sins.

Don't know what I got. Don't know what I need.
Though I ain't been caught I can feel, Where I bleed.

An' I can't tell right from wrong. Jus' know I don't belong.
An' I can't tell night from day. Jus' that the pain, Won't go away.

Don't know who I am. Don't know who I've been.
Jus' know trouble. Oh, the trouble, I'm in.

Don't know how to live. Don't know what it takes.
Don't know how to give. Jus' know,
To forsake and fake.

An' I can't tell up from down. An' I can't tell dirt from ground.
An' I can't tell short from long. Jus' know I don't belong.

An' I wait and wait, at the starting gate.
But I hate that wait, 'Cause I came, Too late.

Don't know why I'm here. Don't know why these tears.
Are flowin' down, around, My frozen ears.

Don't know why I'm lost. Jus' know I'm alone.
Don't know what the cost to find, My way back home.

An' I can't tell right from wrong. Jus' know I don't belong.
An' I can't tell night from day. Jus' that the pain,
Won't go away.
