Joey, Baby,
Don't get Crazy,
Detours, Fences,
I get Defensive.

I know you've heard it all before,
So I don't say it anymore,
I just stand by and let you fight your secret war.
And though I used to wonder why,
I used to cry till I was dry,
Still sometimes I get a strange pain inside.

Oh, Joey, if you're hurtin', so am I.

Joey, Honey,
I'll save all my money,
All is forgiven,
Listen, listen.

And if I seem to be confused,
I didn't mean to be with you.
And when you said I scared you,
Well, I guess you scared me too.
But we got lucky once before,
And I don't wanna close the door.
And if you're somewhere out there
Passed out on the floor.

Oh Joey, I'm not angry anymore.

(Instrumental break)

And if I seem to be confused,
I didn't mean to be with you.
And when you said I scared you,
Well, I guess you scared me too.
But if it's love you're looking for,
Well, I can give a little more.
And if you're somewhere drunk and
Passed out on the floor.

Oh Joey, I'm not angry anymore.

... angry anymore...

... angry anymore...

    I think it goes deeper than that. I think it's about the things that we break in each other and the hope we always will have that things can maybe reconciled.

    This song makes me think of my wife who has had to struggle with my bipolar disorder. The feelings of helplessness and watching someone you love destroy them-self is expressed in this song

    It's about loving someone who has a serious alcohol addiction. It's painful to see what they go through and how it affects their relationship with you, but you just can't let go because you love them so much.

    I think its about a girl who loves a guy and the guys addiction is getting the very best of him. She loves him so much she is willing to be with him no matter what

    My best friend "joey" died two days ago, we sang this song to him for the last ten years. He left us all. Sooo sad.
