Sonic Youth – I'm Not There lyrics

Ev'ry thing's
All right
And then
She's all the time
In my neighborhood
She cries both
Day and night
I know because
It was there

It's a milestone
But she's down
On her luck
And the day
Makes her lonely
And it's so hard
To buck
I was there

I believe
That she'd stop him
If she would
Start to care
I believe
That she'd look
Upon this side
And t' care
And I'd go
By the something
When she's on my way
But I don't belong there

No I don't belong to her
I don't belong to anybody
She's my prize
Forsaken angel
But she don't care
She cries
A lone-hearted mystic
And she can carry on

When I'm there
She's all right
But she's not
When I'm gone
Heaven knows
That the answer
She's don't call
In no one
She's a wave
A thing, beautiful
She's mine
For the one

And I'm also
By temptation
Lest it runs
Which it
Don't follow me
But I'm not there
I'm gone

Now I'll cry tonight
Like I cried
The night before
And I'll feast
On her eyes
But I'll dream
About the door
So long
Jesus, Savior
Blind faith
Worth to tell
It don't have
She's my

I was born to love her
But she knows
That the kingdom waits
So high above her
And I run but I race
But it's not
Too fast a pace

Of course
I'll not deceive her
I'm not there, I'm gone
It's all about confusion
And I cry for her
