I’ll be right behind you, Josephine
I won’t leave you waiting in between
And the cigarette you bummed from me is almost burning out
You suck it till your fingers burn, then you throw it to the ground

I’ll be right behind you, Josephine
Even after everything we’ve seen seen
In this sterile room with blinding lights and faces pointing down
I only want to scream but still I just can’t make a sound Now hold my hand, I’ll hold my breath There’s nothing in this world we really own And Jesus Christ, if you tore my heart out The only thing I’d feel is less alone

I’ll be right behind you, Josephine
I won’t leave you waiting in this dream
While you watch the people speaking words you can’t quite comprehend
You ask me if I’d pinch you but my fingers wouldn’t bend

I’ll be right behind you, Josephine
Just like I was when we were seventeen
I guess that’s only been a year but still it feels like 34
I don’t feel like I am living in the same skin anymore Now hold my hand, I’ll hold my breath There’s nothing in this world we really own And Jesus Christ, if you tore my heart out The only thing I’d feel is less alone

I’ll be right behind you, Josephine
Even when my soul’s an amputee
And my bleeding heart is sinking in the lake inside my chest
So I grab what I can cling to and I leave behind the rest Now hold my hand, I’ll hold my breath There’s nothing in this world we really own And Jesus Christ, if you tore my heart out The only thing I’d feel is less alone Now hold my hand, and take my breath And leave behind the things you’ll never own And Jesus Christ, please tear my heart out I wanna feel a little less alone
