Joey will come to see your flowers.
Joey will come to while away your hours.
But she will tell you you're not so good for her,
She wouldn't be there if it could be that you were.

Joey has loved, never shown no tears,
So she may laugh in the autumn of your years.
When you're with her you wonder if it's true,
All that they said of a world without you.

Where she may come from.
Where she may go.
Who she may run from.
No one will know.
Why she was late may trouble you some,
Still you wait for Joey to come.

Joey will come when once more it looks like snow.
Joey will come when it's really time to go.
And you may smile when you find that you've been wrong,
You thought you'd found her but she knew you all along.

But Joey will come to say hello.
Joey.

    General CommentThis song has a special meaning to me. I read that the song was about death but I think it is unrequited love. She is the free spirit not willing to commit. She cares for him but won't be his. I can see all the death reffered to. That is part of who Drake was.

    General CommentI have always thought this song was from the point of view of someone who has died anticipating the visit to their grave by the object of their (unrequited?) love.
    Very moving anyway.

    General CommentI think this song is about a casual relationship he became involved in shortly before his death, with the last few years at least. I believe she was a worldly, sexually experience gal, even a bit hard, but he liked her, cared for her, but did not love her. She knew of him and his music and was intrigued. She even desired sex from him, but Nick did not concede. Nick was a very romantic gentleman in my opinion and did not go out for casual sex. He "did" think about it though with this woman. He liked her enough to be at least slightly hurt if she was late or didn't show up when he thought she would.
