​How I Remember (Dont Cry, I'm Not Gonna Hurt You)

This song is by David Bazan and appears on the album Fewer Moving Parts (2006).

I go out in public now
More than you might think
But only after several drinks ("pills and drinks" in acoustic)
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 sight
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
