lyrics

I'm not a criminal though I've killed people in my dreams
And I've never had to steal
though I've been known to dine with thieves
And to tell the truth they're just like me

I'm not a hypocrite, still I'm not proud of all I've done
And I hate to think of it, but often I'll refuse to run
When Satan's chasing after me

And when he's knocking at my door,
there's times I let him in
Cause sometimes when you're all alone,
it's nice to have a friend
to see

I'm not a prisoner of anything but my own mind
And I've never been to jail,
but you could say that I've done time
Though time's been pretty good to me

And I don't know what I said, more than 15 minutes ago
But it won't make a difference
some 15 years on down the road
I doubt that you'll remember me

But that's okay cause I don't think that I'll remember you
But I hope that you'd say hello
if your memory pulls through
for me
