Smell Of Gasoline

She didn’t leave no foot prints
No finger prints either
There was nothing out of place
And nobody said they’d seen her

She didn’t break the window
Or bust the deadbolt in
There’s no way I can prove it
But I know where she’s been

My neighbors think I’m crazy
Full of paranoia
But there’s some kinds of danger
That don’t respond to lawyers

What gave away her visit
Entry and exit clean
She left no sights or sounds
Just the smell of gasoline
