Jeannine 02:43 video
Take me away from this place I’ll never go again Found a way to replace All the things I’ve ever been You won’t feel this way in the summer Look behind the door and let it all in You can rely on your friends To get you to the end And it will come around Will always start again You won’t feel this way in the summer Look behind the door and say goodbye It wont take it away, oh no You won’t feel this way in the summer Look behind the door and fill it all in Tell me everything that was on your mind When He left you there And you came out to them It wasn’t your fault that they didn’t understand Pete Yorn/Boyletown Music (ascap)

The world is a beautiful place even though I don’t like it sometimes Seeing what ya get Ya don’t know what you’re expecting You’re waiting on the things That I know you’ve been rejecting The world is a beautiful place Even though i don't like it sometimes The world is a funny place Even though it makes me sad sometimes Seeing what you’ll get You don't know what to expect But you’re in the game So you know you can’t complain The world is a funny place Even though it makes me sad sometimes it makes me sad sometimes Oh it makes me sad sometimes It makes me sad sometimes And my heart goes out to the winners of lotteries They drive home in the sun But take another piece of me The world is a crazy place And i just can’t take it sometimes You’re ever in a rush You don’t know what to expect And even in the mud You can’t get that upset The world is a funny place Even if it makes me sad sometimes Oh it makes me sad sometimes Oh it makes me sad sometimes Oh it makes me sad sometimes Copyright 2020 Boyletown music/ascap

about

"Inspired by the tragic story of Jeannine Deckers, The Singing Nun, who’s #1 hit “Dominique” kept “Louie Louie” by The Kingsmen out of the top spot in 1963, “Jeannine” is a deceptively sunny song that deals with the repression of self and the hope that one day the world will understand an individual’s struggle to feel free to express who they are at their core." Pete Yorn

(Lyrics)
Take me away from this place
I’ll never go again
Found a way to replace
All the things I’ve ever been
You won’t feel this way in the summer
Look behind the door and let it all in

You can rely on your friends
To get you to the end
And it will come around
Will always start again
You won’t feel this way in the summer
Look behind the door and say goodbye
It wont take it away, oh no

You won’t feel this way in the summer
Look behind the door and fill it all in
Tell me everything that was on your mind
When He left you there
And you came out to them
It wasn’t your fault that they didn’t understand
