Lyrics

Joann

Written By: Gann Matthews

I don’t want to feel the way I feel today
It gets a whole lot worse before it goes away
I don’t want things to change
But they just can’t stay the same
I just need a little time to myself Joann

I think I’ll die if I take another step
And in my silence I was crying out for help
I’m here cause of you
But there’s nothing you can do
I just need a little time to myself Joann

I know it’s hard to see right now
But we’ll both be better off somehow

And I’m sorry I never cried ‘til today
And never said the things I know you knew I had to say
I know you love me, I do
But we fucked it up it’s true
I said I hope I’ll see you around sometimes Joann

Living Dangerously

Living Dangerously
Words and Music by Gann Matthews

The world’s changing constantly
As you wait behind closed eyes
Biding time like a spy in disguise
Under a thin fabric of lies

You’re holding on to the things you once held
With the strength of 10,000 men
But things are slipping through your hands my friend
Soon your play will come to an end

You’re living so dangerously
As a man stuck in his ways
Sitting here in this old café
Waiting for yesterday

The railway is rusty and cold
Matinees are much too bold
The motorway is dusty and overgrown
And the kids have all left the fold

You’re halfway there you see
Begging down on your knees
But things are not like they used to be
You’re screaming to the gallery

You’re living so dangerously
As a man stuck in his ways
Sitting here in this old café
Waiting for yesterday
