Sonic Youth - JC Lyrics




[Kim]
Always cost a pair of hose - spaces pressed together rose
Arms around each others back - you know that I liked you Jack
And all the other boys who pose - a silent dance in the woods
In the suburb light is shown - another can of Coca Cola
Don't you ever call me Mom - freckled dancing in the plan
And air so thin it weighs a ton - you can see as far as fun
You're nothing but a history - a second here and then you're gone
Quicksand, quicksand all around - turn the corner just beyond
The shadows move and change the groove - and something tells me not to brood
Turning room and that's a show - you're walking through my heart once more
Don't forget to close the door - I'm not certain of what you found
All the men want a charming whore - like a crown fortunes
Sunny skies and angels bleed - falling down upon my knees
That wasn't how it's supposed to be - clear blue eyes, justice tries
The wind is busy blowing dizzy - you're dreams were shot like a star
Exploding in a mind somewhere - doing something on a dare
Pulling a trigger like breathing air - a sunkissed boy that gave no thought
To what he'd made while others sake

Ocean spreads a candle sand - it's dripping in my hand, you're dead
Little brother reminding me - the moments tick forever true
You can see as far as him - don't you know the shape I'm in
You're walking through my heart once more - don't forget to close the door

Sonic Youth JC Comments
  1. Jack

    1:55 hits so hard i could cry

  2. Otter Donnelly

    For all these years I pretended my favorite Sonic Youth song was about Jackie Chan. Now after looking into Kim's autobiography I see it was for Joe :( it's gonna hit different now

  3. Mark

    Dirty is the best album of Sonic Youth for me, who is it Joe Cole?

  4. calvez philippe

    Un passage léger, défonçant.Celui qui trouble, électrise.Et en musique, maestro. Explorons. Nos symphonies indéfinies. L'espace du souffle. Une voix. Sous stridence d'harmonies à déchirer le chaos. La symbiose. Juste écouter en larmes de fond, les lucioles. La rage qui tape du pied, dodeline de la tête tellement imparfaite.

  5. Street Snapper

    a close friend for the last 26 years

  6. Miya Donelly

    theres something more historical than history itself on sonic youth songs

  7. Heather Taylor

    Miss that boy

  8. Jason Huntley

    what is this song about? seems to me to be about suicide they had this song in the kurt cobain 27 club video at his vigil in seattle in 1994

    iluvugoldenblue

    it's about a friend of the band named joe cole who was murdered. 100% was also about him. you can see him dancing with kim in the my friend goo video.

  35. Jason Huntley

    this is very depressing and i like it they used it for the kurt cobain documentary "the 27 club" that's where i first heard it at first i thought it was bikini kill so i asked someone and they got back to me i really like this who is jc cole?

    ironduke2000

    He was Henry Rollins's best friend, a roadie for Black Flag back in the day; Sonic Youth got to know him when they were signed to SST. He was shot and killed in the course of a robbery in Venice, California, in December 1991. Henry Rollins fled and survived.

    L. M. M.
