lyrics

I've been looking for a lover
I've been looking for a lover or a friend
i've been looking for someone
i've been looking for someone
who could understand
how could you understand?

i've been seeking out a signal
i've been seeking out a signal or a sign
some kind of good fortune
in this misfortunate design

and now this night is almost over
and there's no one left but you
who do i turn to?
who do I turn to?

I can feel it all
I can feel it all
slipping away slipping away through my fingers

i've been seeking out a signal
i've been seeking out a signal or a sign
some kind of good fortune
in this misfortunate design

am I becoming a stranger?
oh no the nausea overtakes
je ne sais pas, je ne sais pas
this feeling has no name

and now this night is almost over
and there's no one left but you
who do i turn to?
who do I turn to?

I can feel it all
I can feel it all
slipping away slipping away through my fingers

we step out on decatur street
we step out we step out in the smoldering heat
and the air is thick as thieves the air is thick as
thieves and so are we, yeah so are we

we step out on decatur street
we step out we step out in the suffocating heat
the air as thick as thieves the air is thick as thieves
and so are we, yeah so are we

and now this night is almost over
and there's no one left but you
who do i turn to?
who do I turn to?

The Public was formed in New Orleans in 2003 by drummer Bryan Besse and guitarist Jack Champagne. Singer Travis Shuler and bassist Ryan Plattsmier joined the lineup and they began work on a few songs influenced by UK post-punk,90s Britpop and American underground alt-rock. They broke up in 2010 a year after losing Plattsmier to suicide. Bassist Ronan Bradley played for the last year of the group. ... more
