Tragically Hip – Goodnight Josephine lyrics

I remember a girl on her cellphone
Surrounded by her friends
Eyes flickering she's trying
To smother a smile in her hands
Is it someone for us
Someone more worry-free
Someone who can say'
"leave the worrying about him to me Josephine"?

I remember you there in the last rays
Of light at diplomacy's end
Eyes flickering you're crying,
"but , isn't this when the crimes begin?"
When the people you want to don't
The people who do
You don't believe
You Josephine?

I remember you there at the table
Surrounded by all the days plans
Eyes flickering you're trying
To let a coffee cup warm your hands
Maybe we're born lost
Born to persevere
Honey I'd walk into your painting
Until I'd reappeared
A speck of comet-tail dust
A blue-green northern light
Flickering just
In your eyes' deepest ravines
Goodnight goodnight Josephine
