Help Me

I was playing at the "Inferno Show Lounge" here in Kansas City one night and a woman who was there came up to the stage, looked at me and gave me a message. The message read, "You Know You Love Me." I'd never seen her before in my entire life. When we took our break, she approached me again and I told her, you must have me mixed up with someone else. I tried to get rid of her. After the gig and upon arriving home, about 2:30 in the early morning, I heard my door bell ring. At this time of morning, I was wondering: who could be ringing my bell? So I peeped out the window and there was this same woman that had talked to me in the club. This time she had something in her hand, it looked like a gun, I couldn't really tell. So I decided to play it safe and call the police and leave. I never answered the door; I just left through the back door and then called the police. I don't know what her problem was but she scared the hell out of me. That incident remained in my mine for a long time. I'm much older now and these things don't happen anymore. So I decided to write a song about it. What an experience that was.

Help Me


A woman called me – the other night.

She told me something - I didn’t like.

Didn’t pay no attention – to what she said.

Next thing I knew – she was ringing my bell.

Went to the window – so I could see

If  that woman – looking for me.

Lighten up – don’t understand

Why that woman’s got a gun in her hand.


Somebody help me – help me save the day.

Somebody help me – I got to get away


I started running – out the back door.

And left the message I don’t live here no more.

I don’t remember – nothing at all.

Why this woman – is all pissed off.

Might have a situation, everybody’s getting high.

And it’s her imagination, my situation, love communications,

She’s got it going on.


Now tell me something – what would you do

a strange woman – chasing after you?

Lighten up – and get back.

I’m sorry baby – it ain't like that.



Give me a break – you made a mistake.

Give me a break – you made a mistake
