......... But i knew him at a glance. He looked older than he had on the other side of the one-way glass, and there was more in his face than the years alone could account for. There's no charge for seats in an AA room but that's because you pay for them in advance.
A Drop of the Hard Stuff
If i knew the way i'd go back home
The countryside has changed so much, i'd surely end up lost
Half-remembered names and faces so far in the past
On the other side of the bridges
That were burned once they were crossed

Marlowe's type shouldn't get married. Because he is a lonely man, a poor man, a dangerous man and yet a sympathetic man, and somehow none of this goes with marriage. I think he will always have a fairly shabby office, a lonely house, a number of affairs, but no permanent connection ......... I see him always in a lonely street, in lonely rooms, puzzled but never quite defeated.
