Jon English – Josephine (Too Many Secrets) lyrics

Oh Jo-osephine, well you wont fi-ind your dream
At the local movie show, the only place you go-o
And I've seen your face at night, out in the glow of the projection light
'Cause up o-on the scree-een are all the people you might have been
I know-ow-ow, I can see
That they'll never give you all the things you're gonna get from me
And I know-ow-ow, yes I know-ow
That you're just another lo-onely gir-irl with no place to go-o
But Josephi-ine (Josephine), don't look in my eyes, you've got too many secrets
Oh, Josephi-i-ine (Josephine), they aint crocodile cries or Hollywood features
But Josephine, I believe (Josephine), you can try 'em out on me
Just try 'em on me
I believe, I belie-ieve
Oh Jo-osephine, well you wont fi-ind your place
Up on a movie screen, with a different name and a different face
And I know-ow, what they say
That you never wanted life, all you want is a three act play
And I know-ow-ow, 'cause I trie-ied
Just to make you talk about thi-ings you wanted to hi-i-ide
But Josephi-i-ine (Josephine), don't look in my eye-eyes
'Cause you've got too many secrets
Oh Josephi-i-ine (Josephine), they aint crocodile cries or Hollywood features
But, Josephine I believe (Josephine), you can try 'em out on me
'Cause you see, I don't wanna tell ya I know all the answers
But I'll pay my money, take my chances
Baby I don't wanna see ya all alone
At the end of the show when the light goes on
'Cause I aint no star-ar, I don't know that sce-ene
I know what I a-a-am, and I believe in Josephi-ine
Josephine, I believe, I belie-ieve
Josephine, just try 'em out on me
Josephine, I believe, I belie-ieve
Josephine, try to sing your song to me

Josephine (Too Many Secrets) meanings

    Hi. I am Josephine English, in that I mean I am Jon's daughter. This song was written when I was a little girl. Dad has told me it was not written about me, obviously, as I was just a youngster. However, as an adult, Dad and I have remarked that the lyrics have become eerily close to things that have happened to me as an adult. Weird eh? Anyway, I always really liked this song, it's still kinda strange to hear him sing it live though and when Dad knows I'm in the audience he always gives a shout out to me and we have a secret chuckle. To be honest, sometimes it makes me cry cause it's so pretty, yet so sad too. It goes without saying that I am immensely proud of all of Dad's work but this song does have a very special place in my heart(as, of course, does my Father). And it's true, I aint no star, I'm just me!
