after you

Gone down this road before,
Once or twice at least…
Already knocked on that door
Done did kill the ugly beast
But that’s not keeping me from going after you

Saw this picture a few years back
on the big wide screen…
Saw the director’s cut
on some Chinese bootleg DVD
But that’s not keeping me from knowing it’s true

A sudden realization
That slowly comes around
An instant flash of insight
without a thunderous sound
A restraint has been ordered
By heart’s short circuit judge
Gives guided tours of the park,
but he doesn’t get out much.

Been here and there; done all that
Have half a dozen shirts
Though the callous is deep and hard
God, that really hurts
But that’s not keeping me from going after you

I’ve forgotten again about déjà vu
But here it is again
Out of the shadows to remind me
of where it’s been
But that’s not keeping me from going after you

A sudden realization
That slowly comes around
An instant flash of insight
without a thunderous sound
A restraint has been ordered
By heart’s short circuit judge
Gives guided tours of the park,
but he doesn’t get out much.

But that’s not keeping me from going after you.
Now you see me, running after you.
