The Night and A Memory

Written with Eric Mellencamp

Got lost walkin' 'cause where I was tryin' to go to
isn't really a place; it's a face. It's you.
I've worn out holes in my shoes.
It's a fright what  the night and a memory can do.

I'm lost in the night and a memory.
I'm lost in the night and a memory.
You may say I got the Devil in me
but I'm reminded of angels when I spin in your memory.

I already wasn't right when yesterday hit me.
Like a firecracker, your echo lit me.
It was like a sleepin' dog that woke up and bit me;
the idea that you'll probably soon forget me.

And you left me in the night with a memory.
I'm stranded in the night and a memory.
Wish you'd let go of the Devil in me
'cause I'm reminded of angels when I spin in your memory.

I'll wake up somewhere anyhow, I don't know.
Wish I could wake up a long time ago
before I was chasin' your shadow
but I'm always a stone's throw
from a memory.

I'm caught in the night and a memory.
I'm lost in the night and a memory.
You may say I've got the Devil in me
but I'm reminded of angels when I spin in your memory.

I've worn out holes in my shoes
it's a fright what hte night and a memory can do.
I'd go to Hell if I had a soul to lose.
It's a fright what the night and a memory can do.

I'm scared of the night and your memory.
I'm lost in the night and your memory.
I can't let go of the Devil in me
'cause I'm lost in the night and in your memory.
I'm reminded of angels in your memory.
