Hobo Johnson – Sorry, My Dear Lyrics | The Fall of Hobo Johnson (2019)

Sorry, My Dear by Hobo Johnson


Have you heard the story of the guy
Who decided not to die
He figured living was just easier
Than falling really high
And if someone heard about it later, thought
Maybe see that is why, I’m enamored
With the thought of seeing angels in the sky
That are singing
And their singing, and saying
Everything’s right, have you heard
They aren’t, So
Maybe I will find a place to sleep
Just a comfortable place
To lay my head

Please, Shoot me in the face, but
First slowly smoke your cigarette that’s laced
With fucking arsenic it makes, Just
Kill me in my sleep
Smother me in pillows, and kindness
Which I’ve never seen
Please slit my perfect throat
The knife that I gave you
When I told you I loved you in my home
Stab me in the back, and
Twist it with the anchor
Every single time I made you mad

Have you heard the story of the guy
Who decided not to die
He figured living was just easier
Than falling really high
And if someone heard about it later, maybe
They’d see that is why, I’m enamored
With the thought of seeing angels in the sky
In fact, their singing
And their singing, and singing
Everything’s right, have you heard
They aren’t
I will find
And I will find

Part of being alive is wishing that you weren’t sometimes
And as your brain forces you to breathe
It lets you rejoice in such reluctancies
But what’s more amazing than that
Is you can do it and it won’t fight back
My brain will calmly cease to breathe
If I really wanna shoot it, or smash it into things

And If I don’t feel better in the next 10 years
Then I’m sorry, my dear
So If I don’t feel better in the next 10 years
Then I’m sorry, my dear
Please love me, don’t be afraid anymore
Should you love him, don’t be afraid anymore

Tell me, have you heard the story of the guy
Who decided not to die
He figured living was just easier
Than falling really high
And if someone heard about it later, maybe
They’d see that is why, I’m enamored
With the thought of seeing angels in the sky
And I know
There’s a comfortable place
To lay my head
