Patrick White

Don't Know Where I'm Going

Don't know where I'm going.
Don't care who I am.
No place I need to be.
No face I've got to see.
Don't care if I'm loved.
Don't care if I'm not.
What arises arises mindlessly.
What business has it with me?
Imagination's just another word for free.
Free, free, free at last
I've let my people go.
I walk without a shadow.
There's nothing about tomorrow
that hasn't already passed
and yesterday's a prophecy
of what isn't waiting to come.
One thing suggests another
and worlds are arrayed before me
like the stillness
of the lost feather of the moon
on running water.
I endure my own weather like the sea.
The lightning strikes itself like a match
to take a look
but there's no one to witness the clarity.
I don't taunt my ghost like a man
who's going to live forever.
If I flower I flower.
If I shine I shine.
Whatever appears
in the black and white mirrors
of the infernal or divine
may or may not be
the meaning of my roots.
My affirmation refutes
what my denial ordains
and the cause doesn't
account for its effects.
I am the perfection of all my defects
so enlightenment and ignorance
are two waves of the same awareness in me.
The fool and the sage speak with the same voice.
Desire beatifies my heretics
like lies I've told to the stars
but their election was never a choice
and my wounds don't seek the truth
in the afterlife of my scars.
The old man does not say I am old
nor I am young, the youth.
Autumn is not older than spring
and spring isn't apprenticed to fall.
I can hear my own footsteps
coming down the hall like time
to meet me after all these years of looking
through everyone else's eyes
but even when I take my face off
at the end of the day
like a tired sky
and point to the stars the light concealed
my self-portrait is always a disguise.
And nothing is revealed.

Where We Are Going

There are times in our life
We don't know where we are going
Till we get there
And when we do
Even we are surprised a
At what we have accomplished

We Don't Know Where We're Going

The operation's on
Movin' forward
we don't know where we're goin',
but we're on our way
So raise the alarm
Movin' forward
we don't know where we're goin',
we're goin' our own way
So move away from home
it's happening
we don't know where we're goin'
but we're on our way
Pack up anything you own
it's happening
we don't know where we're goin'
we're goin' our own way
If we're gonna survive,
we gotta let go of you
I'm sorry that it took me so long
to open up and tell you the truth
The operation's on
Movin' forward
we don't know where we're goin',
but we're on our way
So raise the alarm
Movin' forward
we don't know where we're goin'
we're goin' our own way
If we're gonna survive,
we gotta let go of you
I'm sorry that it took me so long
to open up and tell you the truth

You Don't Know Where Your Interest Lies

You don't know that you love me
You don't know, but I know that you do
You may think you're above me, yeah
What you think isn't always true
Don't try to debate me
You should know that I'm womanly wise
Still you're trying to manipulate me
You don't know where your interest lies
No, you don't know where your interest lies
You don't begin to comprehend
You're just a game that I like to play
You may think that my friend's all right
But I won't let friendship get in my way
No, I won't let friendship get in my way
Indications indicate
Running the same riff will turn you around
Obviously, you're going to blow it
But you don't know it
You don't know that you love me
You don't know, but I know that you do
You may think you're above me, yeah
What you think isn't always true
And you don't know where your interest lies
You don't know where your interest lies

We Do Not Know Where We Are

WE DO NOT KNOW WHERE WE ARE

We do not know where we are-
We do not know why we are-
We just know we are-

For now.

I Don't Know Where

I don't know where my toilet goes and,
I don't know where my water comes from;
Because this is all about the sewage system!

Cloudy

The sky is gray and white and cloudy
Sometimes I think it's hanging down on me
And it's a hitchhike a hundred miles
I'm a raga-muffin child
Pointed finger-painted smile
I left my shadow waiting down the road for me a while
Cloudy
My thoughts are scattered and they're cloudy
They have no boreders, no boundaries
They echo and they swell
From Tolstoi to Tinkerbell
Down from Berkeley to Carmel
Got some pictures in my pocket and a lot of time to kill
Hey sunshine
I haven't seen you in a long time
Why don't you show your face and bend my mind?
These clouds stick to the sky
Like a floating question why
And they linger there to die
They don't know where they are going, and, my friend, neither do I
Cloudy
Cloudy

Who Am I

Who am I to understand
The ways of love a grain of sand
To fall between these fingers
That I hold
Who am I that you should trust
A wind that turns a stone to dust
A mountain to surrender all its gold
And who am I to say, you should believe in me
And who am I to say I love you
One reason why love cannot die
Tell me who am I
Who am I, I never knew
My heart was roaming from or to
(I don't know where we are going to)
The different arms between my day and night
(All I want is just to be with you)
Who am I, a distant sun
A thought before the moment's gone
(Just a thought before the moment's gone)
And I will never let you from my side
(You will always be the only one)
And all I have to say you can believe in me
For who am I to say I love you
One reason why love cannot die
You are on my heart remembers
Tell me who am I
And who am I to say I love you
One reason why love can not die
Tell me who am I
For who am I to say I love you
One reason why love cannot die
You are on my heart remembers
Tell me who
Tell me who am I

Till We Get There

Looking back at our lives
There times
When we don't know
Where we are going
Till we get there
And realize we were headed there
All the time

You Don't Know

You don't know where you belong
you should be more careful
as you follow blindly along
you just need to belong somehow

Relying on rhetoric
not well versed on topics
any idea what you're talking about?
revisions of history
fair well in some company
but don't shove that bullshit down
my throat

You don't know where you belong
you should be more careful
as you follow blindly along
to find something to swear to
till you don't know what's right from wrong
you just need to belong somehow

Left suppresses right
right suppresses left
so what's left

Don't know Where.

Dont know where
she said

standing by the back gate
which backed

onto the woods
with the evening creeping in

and she having snuck out
of her house without

her mother seeing
looked quite nervous

and kept looking back
over her shoulder

as if her mother
may have followed

can’t go to my place
she said

or mine you said
they’re always there

especially this time
of an evening

what about the hay barn?
You suggested

looking at her eyes
blue cornflowers

and that smile
that could have lit

fires in dark places
and she said

dont want no hay stalks
touching my ass

and she laughed
and you wanted to capture

her laughter
and that smile

and her bright blue eyes
and your youth

and that thinking
you had forever

and the monopoly
on truth.

P.s. You Rock My World

p.s. you rock my world
I was at a funeral the day i realised
I wanted to spend my life with you
Sitting down on the steps at the old post office
The flag was flying at half mast
And i was thinkin' 'bout how everyone was dying
And maybe it is time to live
I don't know where we're going
I don't know what we'll do
Walked into the thrif-tee
Saw the man with the hollow eyes
Who didn't give me all my change
But it didn't bother me this time
'cause i know i only got this moment
And it's good
I went to the gas station
Old woman honked her horn
Waiting for me to fix her car
I don't know where we're going
I don't know what we'll do
Laying in bed tonight i was thinking
And listening to all the dogs
And the sirens and the shots
And how the careful man tries to dodge the bullets
While a happy man takes a walk
And maybe it is time to live

When They Call You, You Must Go

do not refuse a chance to be a hero,
so on this day,
or tonight, when they call your name
go,
do not tarry, be ready with the raincoat
and the flashlight
you just do not know what happens next
they will take you to the place
a house on the side of the forest
at the foot of the mountain
there is no fire there
no smoke
nothing is cooked for supper
there is a bleeding man
and he is groaning in pain
and they open the door and you enter
with your black leather bag
and they call you
doctor
there is no ideology here
nothing to talk about
and you begin to take away the bullet
that pierced his strong flesh in the arm
and on his belly
there is no anesthesia and so you put
a red cloth on his mouth
until he faints and then there is silence
no song for the dead even
you cannot sleep over this calling
until you find light
penetrating the holes of the roof
it is already morning
and they all left and you do not know
where they are going
a child with sharp eyes calls your name again
he lead you to the exit point
back to your
old house in the subdivision where you live
where your wife is waiting
your breakfast is ready, your coffee cold.

I Don't Know How I Got By

How did I wake up each day
Before that moment I saw your face
Where was I before your touch
No where is where I was, without you
Without you in it
My life was just a lie
Before you I don't know how I got by
Before I met you
Before I held you in the night
I don't know how I survived
Before I found you
Before you made everything right
I was half alive
I wasn't really living till you came into my life
I got through baby
But I don't know how I got by
How did I get through those nights
Before that moment I held you tight
And where was I before your kiss
And how did I exist without you
Life had no meaning
No reason and no rhyme
And before you I don't know how I got by
Before I met you
Before I held you in the night
I don't know how I survived
Before I found you
Before you made everything right
I was half alive
I wasn't really living till you came into my life
I got through baby
But I don't know how I got by
I thank God when I wake each day
Awaking next to you
Don't know what I was living for
Before you, before you ohhhhh
Before I met you
Before I held you in the night
I don't know how I survived
Before I found you
Before you made everything right
I was half alive
I wasn't really living till you came into my life
I got through baby
But I don't know how I got by
Before I met you
I don't know how I got by

Cold Memory

It's raining all around me
My heart is beating fast
I'm trying to keep from hyperventilating
While I think of the time, that's passed
My clothes are drenched in water
But my skin is completely numb
I remember what you used to feel like
Before you decided to run
You decided the rain was too cold
You thought I was just getting old
You were suddenly grew attired
And told me to adhere
So I walk silently
And, in the rain, my eye sneaks a tear
I don't want your sorrow
I just wanna be alone
So i'll keep walking
On this concrete road
I don't know where I'm going
But anywheres better than here
So I'll keep on walking
Until theres no more tears

Don't Walk Away

Don't walk away
See I just can't find the right thing to say
I tried but all my pain gets in the way
Tell me what I have to do so you'll stay
Should I get down on my knees and pray

[CHORUS 1]
And how can I stop losing you
How can I begin to say
When there's nothing left to do but walk away

I close my eyes
Just to try and see you smile one more time
But it's been so long now all I do is cry
Can't we find some love to take this away
'Cause the pain gets stronger every day

[CHORUS 2]
How can I begin again
How am I to understand
When there's nothing left to du but walk away

See now why
All my dreams been broken
I don't know where we're going
Everything we said and all we done now
Don't let go

I Don't Know Where The Past Is Gone

I dont know where the past is gone
I only know most of my own life is over-
I dont know where the past has gone
I only know so many people I loved
Are no longer here and will never be here again-
I dont know where the past has gone
I only know that that chance I had that hope for so many years
Can never be mine in the same way again-
I dont know where the past has gone
So many moments of beauty and love and opportunity missed and longing unrealized-
I dont know where the past has gone
And what of it I should miss
And why I should long for it so.
I dont know where the past has gone
And where my life was lost and why I did not do better in it-
I dont know where the past has gone
And what will be when for me
Everything is only the Past gone

I Don't Know Why

This is one of those moments
When all that really matters
Is crystal clear
We are woven together
By whatever threads of life that have
Brought us here
We are stripped of all our layers
We are getting to the core
Tell me something real
And nothing more
Cuz I don't know why
I don't know how
I don't know where
Baby all I know is love
So I'm here between the bookends
Of everything that was and What will be
There's a wealth of information
Not so many answers
It seems to me
So I face the unfamiliar
And nothing's clear
Only blinding faith can carry me can carry me from here
And I don't know why
I don't know how
I don't know where
Baby all I know is love
Hold my hand and hold this moment
Time sure feels precious don't it
Life is always changing
This I know
I don't know why
I don't know how
I don't know where
Baby all I know is now
Baby all I know is now
