Little Nemo – Johnny Got His Gun lyrics

Johnny's alone in his mind
As spring's colours let him cold,
Remembers the day
When Mary came to him and said:
"It's for ever..."

Now Johnny can't understand
Why Mary will never touch his hand... Why?Why?

Johnny's alone in his mind
Feels autumn's here cos of signs
Thinking of the train
He took one morning in the rain
Why this train?

Johnny's alone in his mind
Knows that winter isn't far
Waiting in silence
To make himself heard by the nurse
"I want to die..."
