Memory Gloss

My past is as dark as the night
I'm lost, like a man without sight
I don't know a friend
From those who pretend
Don't blame me for being uptight.

Amnesiac John Hodiak doesn't know who he is, or who to trust, in Somewhere in the Night (Joseph L. Mankiewicz; 1946).

The 39 Winks

Done shooting, no film they're exposing
But Hermann's not finished composing 
The score's incomplete,
He snores in his seat
Just wait until Hitch sees him dozing.
