October Project lyrics : "Johnny"

There was Johnny like a stranger
Living in a small town
Measuring the small time

He was thinner than a razor
Johnny in a small town
Living with his thumb on the trigger

Wishing he could be
Just a little bit bigger
Bored

To the heart of himself
He was trouble in the making
Trouble in the keeping

History repeating
He was walking into danger
Johnny in a small town

Looking for a light in the tunnel
Creeping in the dark and
Doubting that the sun'll

Shine
To the heart of himself
And he tells himself it'll be alright

Happiness is just around the corner
And he tells himself
It'll be okay

Happiness is just a life away
She was pretty as a picture
Shining in a window

Everybody said so
What did johnny have to give her
Johnny in a small town

Putting on a suit he had borrowed
Knowing she would probably
Leave him tomorrow

Weak and alone with himself
And he tells himself it'll be alright
Happiness is just around the corner

And he tells himself
It'll be okay
Happiness is just a life away

Everything is different but
It's all the same to him
Everything is nothing like it was

Before she came
Before she stayed
And went away

She left Johnny like a stranger
Waiting in a small town
Measuring the small time

Nights were longer than the days were
Living in a small town
Looking for a door he could open

Hoping that he wouldn't break until he broken
Free
To the heart of himself

And he tells himself it'll be alright
Happiness is just around the corner
And he tells himself

It'll be okay
Happiness is just a life away
And he tells himself it'll be alright

Happiness is just around the corner
And he tells himself
It'll be okay

Happiness is just a life away
A life away
Just a life away
