lyrics

"Hey Joey"
Written by Jaclyn Shaw © March 2013

Nothing is sacred no more
My body defiled and rejected
My health a stream of ranges
My heart a fallen castle

Embrace me in my weakness
Tongues degrading
and they're speaking easy
You touch me as I'm falling
A reward for past aggression

Hey, Joey what you say
The lover waits as while the sinner prays
Won't you rest your hard head
on my heart
Falling like the rain
As I try to save
That part of you that calls my name

You're castles resurrected
Your silence burns your tongue
Our eyes are hungry leaches
Our bodies are tired vessels
These paths are intertwined
Crazed minds now loosely laced
Setting ripples in still waters
Making bounds and bourders

Hey, Joey what you say
The lover waits as while the sinner prays
Won't you rest your hard head
on my heart
Falling like the rain
As I try to save
That part of you that calls my name

It says hold on
I can feel ya
It says hold
I can free your mind
It says hold on
There's still an angel in my heart

Hey, Joey what you say
The lover waits as while the sinner prays
Won't you rest your hard head
on my heart
Falling like the rain
As I try to save
my peace again
my peace again
Hey, Joey
What you say?
