Concrete Blonde - Joey Lyrics

Don't get crazy
Detours, fences...
I get defensive....

I know you've heard it all before
So I don't say it anymore
I just stand by and let you
Fight your secret war

And though I used to wonder why
I used to cry till I was dry
Still sometimes I get a strange pain inside
Oh Joey if you're hurting so am I

I've got the money

All is forgiven. Listen....listen...

But if I seem to be confused
I didn't mean to be with you.
And when you said I scared you
Well, I guess you scared me too
But we got lucky once before
And I don't want to close the door
And if you're somewhere out there
Passed out on the floor...

Joey, I'm not angry anymore

And if I seem to be confused
I didn't mean to be with you.
And when you said I scared you
Well I guess you scared me too...

But if it's love you're looking for
Then I can give a little more
And if you're somewhere drunk and
Passed out on the floor...

Joey, I'm not angry anymore
Angry anymore, angry anymore

  24. NightRunner417

    Anyone who lost someone to addiction or is going through a private hell trying to save them from themselves: you need to understand that it isn't your fault. It isn't your fault that they are that way, and it isn't your fault that you can't or didn't fix them. You have to live it yourself to really understand... the world is too loud, too mean, too bright, too rigid, too frightening, too real, too fake. Unless you honestly believe you can change an entire planet, you can't but help only so much. Even if you could "fix" it, what would that even look like? Some of us, we just go on and on forever feeling trapped here, and it's too much vastly more often than it isn't. If you need comforting while standing by and watching them slowly disintegrate, take it from this - you're probably one of the only things (if not THE only) in their world that feels good and right. Everything else is full of poisonous thorns to them. Take your comfort in that you provide them something that isn't horrible, but actually beautiful and warm. It isn't perfect, I know, but it means more than you can ever know. Just because my kind are shit at expressing that, doesn't mean it isn't very, very real to us. We know how special you are.

  25. granulosum1

    try and live a life of joey and being the saviour nevertheless great song

  26. Lisa Hudson

    This song reminds me of my son, Joey. Who has always saved me. He's bossy, and I wish he wouldn't be so bossy with me cause it never works. We've been all around & have seen lots of things.
    He doesn't make decisions with his emotions. He's an Aquarius. He uses logic. And he is right. He saved me a lot of $$, on my last escapade. He nailed me to a burning cross. And he never threw it in my face either. Not once. Everything he said, he was right. I bought him a new car today. 😂 He deserves it.
    I love my Joey.

  27. paul macek

  39. Apollo Geerman

    This song made me realize the struggle a dear coworker was going through. It was very hard to get her husband off of alcohol but they succeeded.
    Sadly, a week after his daughter was born, he died in an accident caused by a drunk driver who rear ended him while on his motorcycle

  40. Bow Legged

  68. aubree flick

    I lost the love of my life to an overdose. We were together 16 years, friends for 21. He was my world. My absolute everything. No words can describe the pain of losing him. I played this song for him once because it hit home with our relationship. Listening to it now breaks my heart in 2. If only we could go back in time my sweet william. If only we could have fought off those demons that were haunting you. I'm so sorry I couldn't save you my darling. Until we meet again I love you now and forever. 3.8.1. 💔

    Mr. Jones

    May the Good Lord Send you The Comforter, And Bless You Aubree. I myself was dragged through drug n Alch, abuse, But I survived I dont know why. But God willing I read his word daily.

    aubree flick

    @Mr. Jones thank you.

    Mr. Jones

    @aubree flick , Aubree you are so sweet. Im just an old man, But Iv seen alot, But losses not anything close to yours. What ever you are doing its working. Or you wouldnt have thought about replying to some one like me, Grab you a Bible and hold on. When I was young there was a Band called Bread they made a song called Aubrey. Another song was "sweet surrender". Im sorry these songs are love songs But they are good Listening. Bread has a lot of good songs God Bless You And yours. Larry.

    Mr. Jones

    aubree flick, You are Loved Aubree. I prayed for you.

  71. Michael Parkinson

    Say what you want, but I do find it comforting to know that my band plays to the same sized crowds as Concrete Blonde if you go by this video.

  72. Mr.Cracker BOOBDANZA

  80. Mrs J 02

    Once upon a time, I was Joey

  81. JB Allen

    The zoom in and out of his face and the bottle to emphasize his alcoholism, yet the bottle is completely full. I'm not even half the alcoholic Joey is and yet even I would've already knocked back a third of that bottle! You do the math, kids!

  82. Guit Meister

    My name is Jody, my friends all sing this from time to time with my name, very nice.

  85. Howtech

    Who's getting sick and tired of seeing the "who's listening in 2019" comment?


    THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I wish people would stop crying out for attention and affirmation. Get over yourselves.

    Shane FIELD

    As pathetic as the MeToo movement and BlackLivesMatter

  86. Andy Diaz

    First time I listened to this song man what awesome song!

  87. Scott Martinets

    One of the rare songs that just stops me in my tracks, no matter what I'm doing and makes me reminisce about so many things. And wow, it's also rare because it sounds even better live. Just a wonderful masterpiece of music

  89. Sang Hun Jung

    One of the most underrated vocal and group. but keep playing all over..

  90. Constillate

    Thanks Mr Robot

  91. Rambo P. Brown

    This song is like a coincident for my band it's about our late ex bassist his nickname was Joy, who was a heavy-drinker, woman-beater who enjoys bating and abusing his mrs and even asked her a lot of money for grog but the sheila insisted to keep loving him and forgiving him and stay with him despite all the abuse and shit. One day we decided to kick him out and a week later or so i got a text from his mrs said that Joy wasn't home for last 2 days and she asked me to check if he might somewhere out there drunk and passed out. 2 days later we found him dead in one of his friend's flat with his liver swollen like a rugby ball.

  92. Xiao Chris

    Johnette Napolatino 嗓音很有感染力

    I often think of my ex girl friend when i hear this

  94. Celeste Woodhead

    This goes out to my raging alcoholic ex boyfriend, Kirk. This song always made/makes me think of him. He finally succumbed to his personal demons 9/20/17 🖤
