Me, Without You

Lyrics: Barlow, Johnson
Music: Alphonso Johnson

Played by Bob Weir with Bobby & The Midnites

Me, just a face I see
A motel mirror lookin' back at me
It comes and goes with the flash of a neon light

You, another fantasy (note 1)
Another replica of ecstasy
A broken promise I will break again tonight

Just me
Without you without me
Me without

We are just a state of mind
Feeding needs that are always blind
Sightless armies in the battleground of night

The sheets become an angry sea
Tossed by bodies that just gotta be
Something more for trying to unite

More than
Me, without you without me
Me, without you without me
Me, without you without me
Me, without you and me

The light of morning will dissolve us away
Nothing said, 'cause there's nothing to say
Sending post cards from places we've never been, deep within

Other voices heard in some other room
Another planet lit by some other moon
We'll meet strangers and be, together again and again, yeah

Me, without you without me
Me, without you without me
Me, without you without me

Yeah, that's the way it must be
The way it must be
It's the song we're playin'

Gonna take a lot of love
Gonna take a lot of love
But maybe some day
