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 , isnt 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
