Give me a pill
That alters my mind
Paint over memories
Of things left behind
Cause I don't want them around here no more

Give me a smoke
And I'll smoke you right out of that room in my head
Where you told me to stand and wait
Where you held my hand
Where you said I know you do
Where you said Because
Where you said I'll see you again,
When you hear them singing

La la la
Then you walked out the door

So give me a drink
Just one more drink
Something to keep me warm
Something to wash the last cells from my brain
That whisper your name in the cold

Something to wash down that last drop of rain
That I caught on my tongue, you were laughing
There at the end
I could hear them singing

La la la
Then you walked out the door

In 2018, Steve's song 'Melbourne Rain' reached new success after it was featured in PS4 game Detroit: Become Human.
