JOSEF AND ONG

JOSEF AND ONG

when life was once too short for all the things we’d do and the shots we’d call
and endless summer without a fall
when promises were meant to keep

and nighttime wasn’t meant for sleep

JOSEF AND ONG

I went down south to purify my soul
I went down to south to purify my mind
Dressed in black and lavender I rode
Cause if you stand tall for each other
You will find love
And if you stand tall for one another
You will find love

JOSEF AND ONG

the day when we all got lost on the old mans farm
just trying to get across
it was only then I knew what love was
Sunday mornings that never ended and hangovers that never mended

JOSEF AND ONG

let it all rain down on me
it happened too soon

lay your head

down upon my shoulder

JOSEF AND ONG

Sometimes it’s hard to see the change from where you stand
you wake up in a pool of your own selfpity
you try hard to lose whatever dignity she’s left you with
but maybe it’s time to realise that you’re stained but not weak,

calm but not sleak, she’s out of your league

JOSEF AND ONG

i’ll always be by your side
holding you close
holding you tight

i’ll always be by you’re side

JOSEF AND ONG

Tear us in different ways but leave a thread throughout the maze
in case I need to find my way back home
all these decisions make for people living without faith
fumbling in the dark nowhere to roam

JOSEF AND ONG

feeling of no control
empty heart, mind, bottle & soul
drive a man to think he’s on his own
fortunate ones are told, live happily grow wise, grow old,

never let the rain soak to the bone

JOSEF AND ONG

I’ll be needing you tomorrow and for days to come
cause I’m no daydreamer
but I’ll need a place to go if memory fails me & let you slip away

JOSEF AND ONG

This life that sometimes feels like a big joke
where death was the final punchline that everybody waited for
But I’m not ready yet
I have a new vigour

And I intend to see this thing through to the end, my friend

JOSEF AND ONG

cecilia, you didn`t wanna give your heart away
you tear apart with angel eyes like bluebells
with trembling hearts, you leave your empty shells

JOSEF AND ONG

it seems I have a weakness I didn’t know about, till the day it rained
and it seems my weakness has been bulging, has been forcing its way

it seems I have a weakness I didn’t know about, till the day it rained
and it seems my weakness will become my final stage

JOSEF AND ONG

We went to bed and turned the stereo on low
Heard the timer creek and windows rattle gently
Although we smiled, there were no words left to say
A soothing draft was all I had for company

JOSEF AND ONG

sing out, the world is in your voice
it might not be far from the truth
you might not make it, you know how hard it is
but oh how you’ll make the world shine
with just one song at a time

JOSEF AND ONG

it seems I had a secret I didn’t know about, till the day it poured
and it seems my secret has been bulging, has been forcing its way

it seems I had a secret I didn’t know about, till the day it poured
and it seems my secret will become my final stage

JOSEF AND ONG

a thousand miles
lie in your trail
in passing time

you will prevail

JOSEF AND ONG

life takes a different turn, it may feel like your average crash & burn
cause shit aint always how you planned it, how you planned to break on trough
and it aint always how you’d live your life if you could live your life again

JOSEF AND ONG

I travelled too far
to reach for the golden shrine, the evening star
but no matter where you are
you long for mama’s food and daddy’s car
home is how the word is spelt

and belonging is the feeling felt

JOSEF AND ONG

no matter where you go you’ll always be a part
a thousand miles and I’m home
take me back rolling
I have friends to see
maybe I’m old
life here is gold
