Stacy Lattisaw - Johey! Lyrics




A Sunday dinner with my folks (Doo, doo, doo, doo)
We're crackin' up at Jerry's jokes (Doo, doo, doo, doo)
We want to catch the evening sky (Doo, doo, doo, doo)
I trace the sadness in your eyes (Doo, doo, doo, doo)

Ooh, what's that you say (Say)
This can't be true (True)
You're movin' away (Away)
Might as well tear my heart in two (Oh... oh... oh...)

(Doo, doo, doo, doo)
Headin' off is on your mind (Doo, doo, doo, doo)
You say a better life there to find (Doo, doo, doo, doo)
Please take me with you from my fancy school
(Doo, doo, doo, doo)

Ooh, ooh, look in my eyes (Eyes)
What do you see (See)
I'm not a child (Child)
Why can't you leave it up to me

Johey (Johey)
Don't leave me lonely (Don't leave me lonely)
I'm so afraid of being left behind
Johey (Johey)
Don't leave me lonely (Don't leave me lonely)
Say that you'll wait, my broken heart is cryin'
My heart is cryin'

(Doo, doo, doo, doo)
Then all the people gathered around (Doo, doo, doo, doo)
They're goona miss you in this town (Doo, doo, doo, doo)
I can't breathe, I'm chokin' back the tears
(Doo, doo, doo, doo)

Ooh, ooh, once in my life (Life)
Ain't gonna hide (Hide)
I know I'm right (Right)
Gotta be strong enough to fight

Johey (Johey)
Don't leave me lonely (Don't leave me lonely)
I'm so afraid of being left behind
Johey (Johey)
Don't leave me lonely (Don't leave me lonely)
Say that you'll wait, my broken heart is cryin'
My heart is cryin'

Johey (Johey)
Don't leave me lonely (Don't leave me lonely)
I'm so afraid of being left behind
J-o-ohey (Johey)
Don't leave me lonely (Don't leave me lonely)
Say that you'll wait, my broken heart is cryin'

Johey (Johey)

Oh, Johey
I can't believe you're leavin' me, Johey
I mean, everything was so perfect
So afraid, so afraid, so afraid of being left

Johey (Johey)
Don't leave me lonely (Don't leave me lonely)
I'm so afraid of being left behind
Johey (Johey)
Don't leave me lonely (Don't leave me lonely)
Say that you'll wait, my broken heart is cryin'

Johey (Johey)
Don't leave me lonely (Don't leave me lonely)
I'm so afraid, I'm so afraid
Oh... (Johey) Johey, Johey, Johey
(Don't leave me lonely)
Don't leave me lonely, don't leave me lonely

(Johey)
Don't leave me lonely (Don't leave me lonely)
Don't leave me weeping, oh

(Johey)
(Don't leave me lonely)
(Johey)
(Don't leave me lonely)

(Johey)
(Don't leave me lonely)

    I just love this song. I was just a child when it was recorded. but is meaning is just as poignant today. Stacy Lattisaw was beautiful teenager and is now a beautiful woman which is enhanced by her love for Jesus.
