I Know I’m Not Wrong

Her lips were waitin’
Her eyes looked sad
The dreams of a lifetime
A year gone bad

The dreams of a lifetime
Told me wrong
Everything is all right
And now it’s gone

Don’t blame me
Please be strong
I know I’m not wrong

Mmm, here comes the nightime
Lookin’ for a little more
Waitin’ on the last time
Somebody outside the door

Don’t blame me
Please be strong
I know I’m not wrong

Ooh…
Ooh…

Her lips were waitin’
Her eyes looked sad
The dreams of a lifetime
A year gone bad

Don’t blame me
Please be strong
I know I’m not wrong

The first and last song worked on in Studio D, it went through several iterations during the band’s year in the studio, as indicated by the density of the arrangement.

Lindsey: “This is a close relative to ‘Not That Funny’ and they share a lyric. ‘Here comes the night time/Looking for a little more.’ It’s a little joke — can you find the thread here? Like a repeating theme in a novel.”

Interesting Fact

When Tusk was first reissued to CD, it included the remix of “I Know I’m Not Wrong,” instead of the album version. The original album version was restored to disc on the 2015 Tusk reissue.
