Lyrics: Oh My Pretty Joy

I think of you the way I think of

Old photographs and pink roses

Oh my pretty joy I catch the tail of 

That frilly dress you try to run away in

 

Life's ever green on my side, on my side

Though what's ahead of me is somewhat elusive

Oh my bitter doubt I'll catch the tail of

My frilly mind that you tried to run away with.

 

I dance 'til my feet aren't tired

Cuz my mind's not caged in

I laugh 'til my throat's not dying

As an ode to the days when

 

I thought of you the way I think of

Old photographs I lost in the attic

Oh my pretty Joy, I'll catch the tail of 

Your frilly dress if you try to run away again

 

Oh my Pretty Joy...
