Lyrics

Mr. J is away /why am I so afraid?
They told he’s sick and very tired
And he can’t come to see me today
Mr. J. is away /why am I so afraid?
Maybe next time he’s feeling better
For now it’s just me

But I miss him, I miss his love.
And I can’t understand why he doesn’t speak to me
Is he that tired? Are you that tired? Are you?

What happened? What’s wrong?
Where is he? Tell me now!
No! why? It’s not possible!
Take a prayer. Take care of us
We need you so much!
Come back! Come back home!

Come back! Come back home!
OHohohoho
All the time she wondered about the future,
Dreaming of new worlds
And living with the ghosts in her mind
Days turned into a lonely life,
No place to call home, an aimless soul, relying on MR. J.

Come hear me singing
Come to take this off my chest
I need to get it out
I need to get it out
I don’t wanna be afraid
Help me mother, guide my way
Help me to stay
I need to get it out
I need to get it out
I don’t wanna be afraid

On the age of kings she disobeyed.
Got up in one morning
Saw the sunrise calling for a walk
Found a home and changed her life.
No more sorrow, no more pain, relying on Mr. J.

Come hear me singing
Come to take this off my chest
I need to get it out
I need to get it out
I don’t wanna be afraid
Help me mother, guide my way
Help me to stay
I need to get it out
I need to get it out
I don’t wanna be afraid.
Come hear me singing
Come to take this off my chest
I need to get it out
I need to get it out
I don’t wanna be afraid
Help me mother, guide my way
Help me to stay
I need to get it out
I need to get it out
I don’t wanna be afraid.

Why don’t you shut up
Stop screwing with my head,
Making me feel like shit
Looking at me like that.

Hey J.! I need some peace of mind
Some love, of some kind
And a new heart, to keep me alive
And a new heart, to keep me alive.
Please let me live my life

Don’t ever come back
Remember what you’ve done
Crawl back to where you’ve been,
To the life you’ve had before.

Hey J.! I need some peace of mind
Some love, of some kind
And a new heart, to keep me alive
And a new heart, to keep me alive.
Please let me live my life

Hey J.! I need some peace of mind
Some love, of some kind
And a new heart, to keep me alive
And a new heart, to keep me alive.
Please let me live my life
Once upon a time
There was a dog, he lived in a crowded house
Sometimes he got in and out
Nobody ever noticed his getaways

Lost on the mountain, Oh…
Searching shelter, Oh…

In the cold, in the dark
He couldn’t see a thing
The wind didn’t bring him any news
And he walked ‘till the sun rised
He found Mr. J
They hade a talk that last for days

Lost on the mountain, Oh…
Searching shelter, Oh…
Hello my dear J.
I’m coming back from far away.
The feelings I had before are the same I have today
So please listen to what I have to say.

Ordinary people see things in black and white,
I see a rainbow where we can fly high.

Tell me how you feel
In your heart of steel.
Show me your bright side
There’s nothing left to hide
Tell me how you feel
In your heart of steel.
Show me your bright side
There’s nothing left to hide

You’re driving me insane
Turn the lights on, forget the pain.
Stay with me, hold me close, I’m betting all on you
Always remember that I love you.

I’ll be here wishing one more day to hold you,
There’s so many things we have to do now.

Tell me how you feel
In your heart of steel.
Show me your bright side
There’s nothing left to hide
Tell me how you feel
In your heart of steel.
Show me your bright side
There’s nothing left to hide

Tell me how you feel
In your heart of steel.
Show me your bright side
There’s nothing left to hide
Tell me how you feel
In your heart of steel.
Show me your bright side
There’s nothing left to hide
