Jillette Johnson Like You Raised Me

If I ever had to worry, I could worry out loud to you

Let you put a fishnet under my feet

I know the way you like to be a shoulder

As I get older, I smack my lips and suck on my teeth

Don’t you see that you and me

Scares me half to death

I hope to be half that lady

He never laid a finger on me, worst he ever did was scream

So I screamed right back then I toyed with his head

Hurt him worse than I could understand

And I caught you crying

You said “I deserve to be swept off my feet”

Do you remember 23?

Scared you half to death

I hope to be half as lucky

To find somebody and makes me happy

And gives his children everything

And maybe in the end, lie on a beach somewhere sunny

If you ever had to worry, you could worry out loud to me

Don’t wanna go there, yeah don’t get dark

It’s just a joke, don’t fall apart already

It’s only your family

You’re killing yourself, yeah everything’s fine

I’m sure we’ll have a glowing time

Nothing but the best

What did I expect?

I’m gonna be just as crazy

Like you raised me

Jillette Johnson Thumbelina

Listen to the sound of my voice

You only get one more chance

It’s up to you to make a choice

It’s time you took a stance

I’m not gonna let you ruin me for every other man

And twirl me in the palm of your hand

I’m not Thumbelina, I am not your ballerina

You are not going to make me dance for you anymore

Feels like I’m talking to a wall

Of all the stars in the sky

I could have anybody

Don’t you see them last

Everywhere we go

Do you really think it’s just

You and me and a Bible

I’m not gonna let you ruin me for every other man

And twirl me in the palm of your hand

I’m not Thumbelina, I am not your ballerina

You are not going to make me dance for you anymore

Feels like I’m talking to a wall

Of all the stars in the sky

I could have anybody

I’m not gonna let you ruin me for every other man

And twirl me in the palm of your hand

I’m not Thumbelina, I am not your ballerina

You are not going to make me dance for you anymore

Feels like I’m talking to a wall

Of all the stars in the sky

I could have anybody

Jillette Johnson Peter Pan

We don’t get drunk on Tuesday nights anymore

We don’t don’t have the stink from the weed

With the towel on the bathroom floor anymore

Everyone’s got something to wake up for

Doubling, coupling, only doing couple things

We don’t get drunk on Tuesday nights anymore

Well I guess I’m the only one,

I’m the only one,

I’m the only one left in Neverland

Hey where ya going?

Aren’t you sick of growing?

I’m the only one left in Neverland

We don’t take trips no little white tricks anymore

We don’t fade away

let the world decay on the bathroom floor anymore

Everyone does what they can get paid for

Puppet strings, puppet strings, money moves everything

We don’t take trips for the shit of it anymore

Well I guess I’m the only one,

I’m the only one,

I’m the only one left in Neverland

Hey where ya going?

Aren’t you sick of growing?

I’m the only one left in Neverland

Me and Peter Pan

We don’t wanna ever leave

Oh oh oh

All I need is my shadow

Oh oh oh

And all the rest is hollow

oh oh oh

And all the rest is hollow

Well I guess I’m the only one,

I’m the only one,

I’m the only one left in Neverland

Hey where ya going?

Aren’t you sick of growing?

I’m the only one left in Neverland

Me and Peter Pan

We don’t wanna ever leave

Don’t even think I can

Our never Neverland

Jillette Johnson Last Bus Out

What if I never make it to the bus stop

Never get on

What if I never take you to the west coast

Move back the clock

What if I stay in these sheets

And keep your hands on my knees

What if I want want to stay

And keep my clothes at your place

What if I belong in this battle

This side with this pillow

Sleeping in your sweater

Your skin and your smile

Maybe I don’t in California weather

What if I miss the last bus out

My life is waiting for me at a rental

Right on this street

They tell me this is where it all happens

Where the money is

What if I hate the machine

And get chewed up by the dream

What if I want want to stay

And keep my clothes at your place

What If I belong in this battle

This side with this pillow

Sleeping in your sweater

Your skin and your smile

Maybe I don’t in California weather

This battle

This side with this pillow

Sleeping in your sweater

Your skin and your smile

Maybe I don’t in California weather

What if I miss the last bus out

And we stay right here in this garden of skin

And bones…comatose

Ivy’s crawling up the bed

Tangling our legs

Forever till we’re dead

Baby I belong

In this battle

This side with this pillow

Sleeping in your sweater

Your skin and your smile

Maybe I don’t in California weather

This battle

This side with this pillow

Sleeping in your sweater

Your skin and your smile

Maybe I don’t in California weather

What if I miss the last bus

What if I miss the last bus

What if I miss the last bus out

Jillette Johnson 17

Kiss the nape, of my back

And lay me down in the silence.

I like the way you take me out.

Half my end turns to vio.len.ce

I love you

Young blind and dumb

And you love me

Upside and down

Still darling, still we can be 17

Feels like the day, that we met

The bite of frost, on the sidewalk

The morning glare, the nervous calm

The need to touch, the fear to talk

Oh I love you

Young blind and dumb

And you love me

Upside and down

Love you, young blind and dumb

Love me, upside and down

Still darling, still we can be 17

Grandfather talks, fire pops

The floor creaks, in a chorus

How was your day? I missed your face

But I light up when that door opens

I hate Wisconsin, the heaters broken

I miss my home on the pacific

But ill push through it, we all get homesick

But this is home now, cause you’re in it.

And in love you..

You love me..

I love you, young blind and dumb

And you love me upside and down

Love you, young blind and dumb

And you love me, upside and down

Still darling, we can be…

Still darling, we can be seventeen.

Jillette Johnson Bunny

Sign me away, everything I own

Wrap it up in plastic and take it from my home

Give it to the government, give it to the church

Whenever they’re done with it, feed it to the birds

Sign me away, write it in pen

Get it laminated and then dip it in cement

Hang it in the lobby just above a rubber tree

The official copy of a factory of me

When the world is over and the robot army comes

Filing down the mountain with their supersonic guns

I’ll be free

‘Cause you can have my body but you can’t have me

Somebody had got it in my head

I was gonna be the biggest star they ever met

I wasn’t Madonna in the naissance of her prime

Like an anaconda slowly wrapping around a prize

Ripe for the feast, eyes on the kill

Hungry, very hungry for the rapid blood to spill

Beady little eyes are burning holes in my back

Everyone’s a voyeur here but no one will react

When the world is over and the robot army comes

Filing down the mountain with their supersonic guns

I’ll be free

‘Cause you can have my body but you can’t have me

I don’t think you really care

Long as there’s a paper with your name on it somewhere

Giving you a piece of what someone might be someday

But you don’t believe in anybody anyway

When the world is over and the robot army comes

Filing down the mountain with their supersonic guns

I’ll be free

Floating on a sunbeam lost at sea

You can have my body but you can’t have me

Jillette Johnson When The Ship Goes Down

I wanna live in a better part of town

Over the park in a bed of garlands

With an ivory banister I can slide down

And a man outside that I call Simon

I wanna fall asleep in a cashmere nightgown

When the ship goes down

I wanna live in a better part of town

Where I don’t have to hide my diamonds

The bourgeois are bubbling around,

But they can’t touch my sweet asylum

They’ll put me on the first lifeboat out

When the ship goes down

When the ship goes down

We deserve a chauffeur in our car

Black truffle loaded with caviar

White gloves to open up every door

Life is short, let’s get what we came for

Ah, ah, I want more

La, la and I’ll get what I came for

La, la, I want more

I wanna get high and never come down

Mountains of white and music so loud

I want to die with jewels in my crown

When the ship goes down

When the ship goes down

When the ship goes down

Jillette Johnson I’m Sorry

I’m sorry

That’s what I am, sorrier than I’ve ever been before

Never again will I try to win your affection

It can’t be done

I’ll play a game that can’t be won

I got the taste of rejection and I can’t get it out

Now I don’t come easy anymore

I’ve never been so sorry

Not like before, not like i did

I never win this war

Why even try?

I died to win your affection

It can’t be done

I’ll play a game that can’t be won

I got the taste of rejection and I can’t get it out

Now I don’t come easy anymore

I’ve never been so sorry

I’ve never been so eager to win

I’m sorry

I’ve never been so eager to win anything

I can’t get none

It can’t be done

I’ll play a game that can’t be won

I got the taste of rejection and I can’t get it out

Now I don’t come easy anymore

I’ve never been so sorry

So sorry

So sorry

Jillette Johnson Heathen

Cinder blocks around my brain

Came to mock but I remain to

Pray, oh, pray

Am I talking to myself,

Talking to myself

Or brother are you with me?

The muscle of a temperate breeze

Could KO my philosophy

And I feel it shake,

I feel it shake

I’m at the belly of a well,

Talking to myself

Lover can you lift me?

Baby, are you still awake, hey, hey

Can I tell you about my night screams?

Would you teach a heathen how to pray?

Cinder blocks around my brain

Came to mock but I remain to

Pray, oh, pray

Axion shake, but I came to pray

I’m at the belly of a well,

Talking to myself

Lover can you lift me?

Baby, are you still awake, hey, hey

Can I tell you about the night screams?

Would you teach a heathen how to pray?

Oh, brother are you with me?

Baby, are you still awake, hey, hey

Can I tell you about the night screams?

Would you teach a heathen how to pray?

Would you teach a heathen how to pray?

Can I tell you about the lightning

Can I muster up a little faith?

Jillette Johnson True North

The enemy is in my mind

But the little belly aches give it, light

If I could be inside my body while I move my mouth, then, I

Could better swallow what I feel

And it would only be like water in a, whale

I could release you to the ocean with a mighty sound

I’ll find true north, somewhere, somehow

When the road ends, and spits me out

I’ll call my friends, and wipe my nose

Ill find true north, and stumble out

C’mon be a comedian

Got to admit there’s something funny in the

fall to ruin

You’re broken, hungover, and living in your parent’s house

You’ll find true north, somewhere, somehow

When the road ends, and spits you out

You’ll call your friends, and wipe your nose

You’ll find true north, and stumble out

I’m

I’m

Stumbling

Home

I’m

Stumbling

Home

Am I air or am I water will I dry or will I drown?

I built everything I wanted then I tore it, down

I am sure

As hot as cold

The more I learn

The less I know

I’ll find true north, and settle down

Release the lowness of my doubt

I’ll call my friends, and wipe my nose

I’ll find true north, and stumble home
