"That's All I Know (Right Now)" as written by Tom Verlaine and Richard Hell....
My nerves are buzzing and my heart is God
I think... but I might be wrong
this goes to to the attic and buzz on the wall
but it's all right I don't care at all
`cause I'm yours and you're mine and that's
and that's all I know right now
that's all
that's all
I know, right now

it's dark outside except for pinpoint light
lost in a fight
picking up from the street
I'll stop over once and lay it at your feet
`cause I'm yours and you're mine
that's all I know right now
that's all
that's all
I know, right now

oh, baby it's dark out there
but oh, baby it's dark in here
oh, darling I don't care no no

my TV's up against the wall like a painting
abstaining
but I myself had a thought for my lips
it's delicious lady won't you have a sip
`cause I'm yours and you're mine
and that's all I know right now
that's all
that's all
I know, right now

`cause I'm yours and you're mine
and that's all I know right now
that's all
that's all
I know, right now

    General CommentJust correcting some of these lyrics:

    My nerves are busted
    And my heart is gone
    I think I once was different
    But I might be wrong
    There's ghosts in the attic
    And GHOULS in the wall*
    But it's alright
    I don't care at all

    'Cause I'm yours and you're mine
    And that's, that's all that I know right now
    That's all, that's all
    I know right now

    It's dark outside
    Except for a pinpoint of light
    FROM a LITTLE GOLD TOOTH
    Lost in a fight
    I DUCK outside
    I pick it up from the street
    I stomp on it once
    And lay it at your feet

    Oh baby it's dark out there BUT
    Oh baby it's dark in here
    Oh darling I don't care oh no

    The TV's up against
    The wall like a painting
    And everybody here
    In the museum is fainting
    But me myself
    I've got FROTH on my lips
    It's delicious lady
    Won't you have a sip?

    * Might say HALL, but I'm not sure . . .

    P.S. By the way, you did know this song is not a Sonic Youth original, right? It was written by New York punk poet Richard Hell, and it was first recorded by The Neon Boys. If you haven't heard the original, I suggest you check it out - good stuff.
