"Vincent" lyrics Empty
PostSubject: "Vincent" lyrics   "Vincent" lyrics Icon_minitimeSat Feb 22, 2020 2:16 am

My name is Jolene, but I hate that song
I was baptized in a river when I was young
And Jesus forgives me for all of my sins
'Cept maybe that one when we were kids

I came from South Texas, killer party scene
But somehow the wanting turned to a need
I had a decent boyfriend, 'til he got mean
He hit me so hard that the room used to spin

So, say that you love me
Before we both end up in Hell
I'm not asking for your forgiveness
Couldn't run if I wanted to now

Say that you miss me
Tell me sweet, sweet little lies
Humor me, Vincent
After tonight, I won't be home for a while

And I would fly solo, to the rodeo dance
I'd cover my bruises in a Maybelline mask
I'd wait 'til he passed out, he did it most nights
I'd go to meet Vincent to come back to life

Nobody knew, but inside I would break
There was always this screaming, in between I'd just wait
One night, I suppose, finally drove me insane
And I stabbed him once, and stabbed him again

So, say that you love me
Before we both end up in Hell
I'm not asking for your forgiveness
Couldn't run if I wanted to now

But say that you miss me
Tell me sweet, sweet little lies
Humor me, Vincent
'Cause after tonight, I won't be home for a while

And I used to love the smell of the carnival
And the Tilt-a-Whirl setting us free
I'm sure gonna miss the summer
How the lights used to light up in me

But I better go
Vincent, I love you more than you know
God bless you old friend
I don't think that I'll ever see you again

My name is Jolene, but I hate that song
I was baptized in a river when I was young
