where were you lyrics – zuba

1) johnny was a man from a good town south of omaha
he lived his dreams and raised a family
but he could not see the way you see, all the people and the freaks
were on the empty pages in his mind

2) johnnys daddy died in the big war
they never found his body to this day
it was on that beach in normandy, johnny hoped he’d never see
his daddy washed away to an early grave

chorus –
where were you then
i’m on that street again
wishing i could fly away forever

3) johnnys’ daughter hates her life in this godd*mn town
she runs away forever to be free
but the city eats her sanity, she winds up livin’ on the streets
wishing she could be home by the fire


4) johnny died late one night in his empty bed
a lonley man with no one by his side
it was there he slipped into his dreams, with all the people and the freaks
right there by his side no longer alone

chorus 2x
