Although I've yet to hear the new David Byrne album, that's hardly cut down on my listening to the other LPs of his (which I have far.. FAR.. too many of).


You Don't Know Me - David Byrne
From the LP 'Feelings'
-------------------------------

You're looking at me but you can't see me,
I'm invisible to the naked eye.
I'm a part of everything you're doing,
I'm a part of you down deep inside.

I'm the part that sings those goofy love songs,
I'm the part of you you can't control.
I'm the part that fucked up your promotion,
I'm the part that hurts when you're alone.

On this beautiful night, by the bright disco light,
We will dance till the pain is all gone...

If love is alive why can't I touch it?
Does it feel like Jell-O or a fire?
I can tell by the taste it was not poison,
But it sure did mess up my insides.

There's nothing else like you on my planet,
You see me now in my true form.
I did not come here in a spaceship,
I came the moment you were born.

On this beautiful night, by the bright disco light,
We will dance till the pain is all gone...

For some reason, this has always made me think of a WoD Changeling getting used to Chrysalis.
