(i. hanson/t. hanson/z. hanson/e. shipley)

Dear amy, see you in september
Hope that you remember me next year
Hey jamie, you've been a great friend to me
I hope that I'll still see you around here
'cause I'm looking through the yearbook then I find that empty space
There's a name without a picture, but I can't forget his face
Tell me where did he go, I want to know
Where did johnny go?
It says, "picture unavailable" right here
More than sad, it makes me mad to know somebody knows
There's a lying in your silence. tell me where did johnny go?
Poor katie, she won't even speak his name
None of us will ever be the same
It's quiet in the halls, but I hear echoing off the walls.
The rumors of johnny's mystery
'cause I'm looking through the yearbook then I find that empty space
No he never wrote me nothing, but I can't forget his face
(repeat chorus)

Ohhh. there's a lying in your silence. tell me where did johnny go?
Ohhh. there's a lying in your silence. tell me where did johnny go?
Sometimes I think I hear him calling out my name
Sometimes I wonder if maybe we're to blame
It's been a year now and a lot of things have changed
But I keep thinking about johnny. I keep turning to that page.
Where did he go I want to know, where did he go I want to know?
Ohhh. there's a lying in your silence. tell me where did johnny go?
Ohhh. there's a lying in your silence. tell me where did johnny go?

    I never knew what could have happened to Johnny when I listened to this song way back when, but now, I wonder if Hanson was trying to put forth a song over teenage angst leading to suicide or something of the like...
