Oh Josephine

  • Diamonds hold mirrors
    And spoon it holds the stars
    It's been a long time baby
    Since I've seen the sun rise like this
    Make a wish and call it maybe
    And give me one more kiss
    Oh, I like it like this
    Oh, I like it like this

    Oh Josephine
    You're dressed in black
    Oh Josephine
    Your eyes are blue
    And I know now
    There's no turning back
    Oh Josephine
    What will we do?

    It's the dreaming through the come down
    Still filling every tape
    Come on and touch me baby
    Before I turn to rust
    I know there ain't no other
    It's not a matter of trust
    It's just sometimes love ain't enough
    Oh, love ain't enough


    For a while I was kneeling in tears and powder
    For as well I was strung out beyond my means
    Well I lost that love while climbing down the ladder
    Just looking for the song to set me free

    Waited for redemption
    No leaving love behind
    You've got to know where you wanna be
    It gets cold outside
    It's too late to play it safe
    So let's let it all ride
    Yeah, let's let it all ride
    Let it all ride!

  • Mel!ssa from Pittsburgh, PaThis is a great song. And yes, the last line does sum it up. You can live by that line! I always wondered if Josephine is Wyatt Earp's Josephine? It's my grandmother's name. Beautiful.
