lyrics

Secretly Joan
Whispers on the phone
Glued to that thing
When she’s home alone
And through her strange days
Of filling ash trays
Her high school friends
Were secretly gay
And when JFK died
America cried
But Joanie just lied
At the beach
She got drunk at the mall
With her ex-boyfriend Paul
Made out in the changing stall in Macy’s
The Vietnam war and her grocery store
Couldn’t mean any less on a packed dance floor
Joanie wants to kiss a man
With a gun in his hand
She’s tired of the horses
She’s sick of the sand
Her friends draped up in lace
Couldn’t make it anywhere but this place
Neckin’ in a line of Chevrolets
Outside a bar
It’s a sweet seventeen
For a disappearing queen
Her youth is vanishing
Au revoir
Tonight she saw her mom cry
Through the windows outside
Her childhood fried like tar
And then Joanie saw him
Come in
A black leather jacket
He split the lines up
And snorted
A bright white substance
And they began to dance
He took off her pants
An eternal trance
In love in Paris, France
She’s not a kid anymore
She’s not a kid anymore
She threw that shit in a drawer
Now she gets the spins
And throws up on everything
And passes out leanin’ on the front door
And she’ll wake up to the sound
Of her head hitting the ground
And she’ll wake up to the sound
Of her head hitting the ground
