The Lyrics Are Below

Dear Joan


Dear Joan

I've almost forgotten

The pane in the window

The blue dress in the doorway


Dear Joan

Help me remember

The face I forget

And the traps that I've sprung


I guess I've grown tired

It's just what's expected of me

To tear your heart

From the inside to the outside

You know I was wired

I just couldn't help it

The hundred thousand times I hurt you



Dear Joan I wanted to say

I'm sorry for the screaming last night,

And the nights before

I've wanted more from this

Than anything I've ever known

Dear Joan


Dear Joan

Your face has a brightness

That I've never seen

In the years that I've known you


Dear Joan

I'd pick up the pieces

But some scattered too far

They flew when I kicked them


I know you believed

When I said it was over

You stood by me patiently

Waiting and brooding

So deeply in love

With every face that I've shown




Once I forget

Twice I'm a fool

Three times I wrap

My hands around your neck

(while your sleeping)

(so quietly sleeping)

(sleeping and dreaming)


Dear Joan

Don't walk out the doorway

Because if you did, I believe

I could honestly kill you
