My James Dean

from Jonestown by Sofia Talvik



My James Dean

So look what you’ve done
what I’ve become
look what you’ve done
You couldn’t leave me be
and now that you see
I’m not that special
you leave me
here is a lonely place
and staring back
is a lonely face
I couldn’t let you go
though I tried to throw
it all away
I wanted you to stay

So baby I’m sorry
I wanted you to be my James Dean

Yes I know what you’ve done
what you’ve become
I know what you’ve done
I wish that you were mine
could you give me time
and I’ll make it better
I turn around and there
is no one here
my hair is wet
from my own tears
I wake and it’s half past five
it’s still dark outside
not nearly morning
and I want to scream out loud

Baby I’m sorry
I wanted you to be my James Dean

I fall asleep I’m happy here
you’re in my dreams 
it’s nearly morning
I close my eyes I see you smile
right by my side My James Dean
