Haze

Lyrics: Weir, Shaw, Mydland
Music: Weir, Cochrane, Kelly

Played by Bob Weir with Bobby & The Midnites - apparently written as a eulogy for Weir's friend Bruce Baxter.

Don't look like no kinda good thing
Might just be right for tonight
Wouldn't want no one to see this, no
Guess I'd best stay out of the light, that's right

Haze, crazed and dazed
Time to run and leave this place
Yeah I ought to turn and run and leave this place
Haze, crazed and dazed
It may be meant to be, just may be fate now
Hell, it's probably too late

Better off not knowing
Yeah, I wonder what this is all about now (note 1)
Better off not knowing
There's only one way I'm gonna find out now

There are nights for taking chances
There are nights for taking care
Hey tonight I see no reason, no
Not to take it anywhere, anywhere

Haze, crazed and dazed
Yeah I ought to get out of this place now
I ought to run but I don't care
Haze, crazed and dazed
Hey tonight you're gonna be amazed now
At the things we do when we dare

Better off not knowing
Listen here
Better off not knowing
Some nights you just don't care
Better off not knowing
Just don't care
Better off not knowing
Just might take it anywhere

Could be that running
Would be a mighty foolish move
I know I can take whatever's coming
Just keep burning on
Till there's nothing left to use
Nothing left to lose
Nothing left to do
Nothing left

Anything goes, nobody knows now
'Cause in the morning none of it shows now
Let me see, can I remember how it goes now
Any old way she blows now, there she goes now

Haze, crazed and dazed
Can't let this feeling go to waste now
Been waiting for this night way too long
Haze, crazed and dazed
My body's ready and my head's ablaze
And I want to know what it is leading me on

Better off not knowing
Keeps leading me on
Better off not knowing
Tonight we're gonna have some fun
Better off not knowing
Some fun, gonna have some fun
Better off not knowing
Some fun, some fun
Better off not knowing
Send lawyers, guns and bunnies
Better off not knowing
And we gonna have some fun, hey

Could be that running
Would be a mighty foolish move
I know I can take whatever's coming
Just keep burning on
Till there's nothing left to use
Nothing left to lose
Nothing left to prove
Nothing left

Haze, crazed and dazed
[etc]
Notes
(1) the lyrics with the album have this as "I want to know what this is all about", but that doesn't seem to be what Bobby sings
