Johnny dear can I make it clear that we were
we were meant to be?
You were standing near but you could not hear the saints
calling you to me.
You've got your high shades on, your shadow's overdrawn, and you are lost in cloudy dreams.
Oh Johnny dear if you were crystal clear than you would
belong to me.

Johnny dear it is what I feared,
you are far from all you seek.
Still see him hanging there but act like you don't care,
you rest your demons in the deep.
Make sure your eyes are red and keep your noses white;
pretend her love is what you need.
But Johnny dear her love will disappear;
she'll leave you strung out at your peak.

Oh, I'm what you need.

Johnny dear remember late last year when I
couldn't sleep at all?
Oh, I was crying drunken tears, oh I was full of fear when I
finally made that call.
We planned our future out, said you were ready now,
but I was right to have my doubts
cuz Johnny dear just downed another beer;
he still can't wash the devil out.

Oh, can't save him now.
