How I Remember - David Bazan

I go out in public now
More than you might think
But only after several drinks

That's how I remember

Then if I see any girl
I've ever met before
I run like hell for the door

That's how I remember

Memory records
Selected shorts and interpretations
Then later plays them back
As gospel fact

That's how I remember
That's how I remember

With one eye open
You can focus like a camera on
Whomever you are capturing

Without exception
I prefer it as a way to document
The objects of my interest

Red and yellow, black and white
Are precious in his eyes
But who he roots for in a fight

That's how I remember

So every time I find a girl
Beaten, gagged and bound
I let her go and write it down

That's how I remember
That's how I remember
