J-Boy

  • Something in the middle of the side of the store
    Got your attention when you ask for more
    I was excited to be part of your world
    To belong, to be lost, to be mostly the two of us
    Something I was stealing for no reason at all
    They hang me higher than a disco ball
    But you talked them into letting me go
    It's no Picasso, Michelangelo

    Something 'bout the jewels you wear
    Shiny, shiny bangles on your wrists
    And at the Masquerade ball
    You feel trapped in a vault, in an empty aquarium
    If suddenly you're out of the woods
    Then inside of an alley you're out of words
    Well, I thought it was radium at first

    Just because of you
    These things I have to go through
    Is it so bad? Is it so true?
    Is it still you?
    Just because of you
    These things I have to go through
    It's more than that, we're chained
    And there's no one else to blame
    For us two

    Some things they don't matter till they matter to you
    They stole that money from a homeless girl
    The truth, we're all to blame
    There are lies and moral consequences
    We started at the end of the line
    To end up giving up to a couple, who cares?
    When you talked me into letting you go
    No more coral on the atoll

    Something 'bout how hard you learned
    Kamikaze in a hopeless world
    Do you remember the last time you laughed
    And I laughed and you left and I left?
    Send me on the lonely other side of the world
    With a couple of guys and no alphabet
    Put two and two together
    We'll make it last forever

    Just because of you
    These things I have to go through
    Is it so bad? Is it so true?
    Is it still you?
    Just because of you
    These things I have to go through
    It's more than that, we're chained
    And there's no one else to blame
    For us two

    Just because of you
    These things I have to go through
    Is it so bad? Is it so true?
    Is it still you?
    Just because of you
    These things I have to go through
    It's more than that, we're chained
    And there's no one else to blame
    For us two Writer/s: Mars Thomas, Christian Mazzalai, Branco Laurent, Deck D'Arcy
