Somehow She Knew by David Crosby

Somehow She Knew Somehow She Knew (7:05)
Words: David Crosby
Music: David Crosby and Craig Doerge

As the room slid into focus
And he woke up
With room service at the door
And he wondered why he
Never spoke up
About all of that fear before

It was standing just an inch
Behind him
A shadow stalking by his side
A thing he was afraid would
Find him
And wash him away in the tide

And somehow she know why
I was crying
She knew just which fears
I had not faced
In her eyes I could see
Where I was lying to myself
And a path that she gently traced
To where the man in the movie said
Is it all right
If I miss her tonight
And the man felt just like me
They say a wolf in a trap will
Chew off his own leg
I guess I did the same
It's what you do with a thing
You can't handle
A picture you just can't frame

And from somewhere deep in that movie
She opened a door in my chest
And delicately took out a death
That had never been laid to rest

And somehow she knew why
I was crying
She knew just which fears I had not faced
In her eyes I could see where
I was lying
To myself
And a path that she gently traced
To where the man in the movie said
Is it all right if I miss her tonight
And the man felt just like me
