I Don't Know Lyrics

Musical by Dave Malloy (2014)
Ghost Quartet the Musical - I Don't Know Lyrics

ALL:
Now I don't know
But I've been told
And that's true of everything I think I know
Everything I think that I don't know

GELSEY:
I don't even know how to begin

BRITTAIN:
I don't even know who I am
I'm not here

GELSEY/BRITTAIN:
No one is here

BRITTAIN:
I stay awake most every night
Waiting for a glimpse to appear

GELSEY/BRITTAIN:
Where's my ghost in the mirror
I want one too

ALL:
I've got a thousand one stories
Every single one of them's a lie
Let me read you a story
Let me read you a romance
I will read, you will listen
And this terrible night will pass

When I was a child I used to play
Play with all the voices in my head
Long long ago
That's not me anymore

Now I ride the subway every night
Staring at the game on my phone
Keep my head down
I'm all alone

DAVE/BRENT:
I don't know if this is me at all
Or just some ghost of me that I dreamed up
Just to sing myself to sleep

BRITTAIN:
Or someone that I used to be
Or someone that I will be
Or someone that I am right now

ALL:
Or someone that I used to be
Or someone that I will be
Or someone that I am right now
Or someone that I used to be
Or someone that I will be
Or someone that I am right now
