Johnny I waited where you told me but you never came.
I practiced my cheers in the rain.
A forever in black leather Johnny, can't you see?
I need your hurt inside of me.

Do-do-do-do-do-do-wa, Do-do-do-do-do-do-wa.

Johnny you took away my diary said that it was yours.
I found it in the trashcan by the double doors.
A bloody unicorn without her horn was crudely drawn,
On all tomorrow's pages scattered & torn.

& you just drive away
You drive away
You drive away
Johnny Nightmare
You drive away
You drive away
You drive away
Oh please don't take my nightmare away.
Please don't take my nightmare away.

Oh something's glowing in the heather around the last turn,
Hollowed out like a jack o'lantern.
Johnny I sold my soul for petrol how could you forget?
I'm still wearing your ID bracelet

& you just drive away
You drive away
You drive away
Johnny Nightmare
You drive away
You drive away
You drive away
Oh please don't take my nightmare away.
Please don't take my nightmare away.

Speed kills but Love Saves.
He spills what he craves.
Blood! Warm as a motor.
Blood! Thick as a milk shake.

& you just drive away
You drive away
You drive away
Johnny Nightmare
You drive away
You drive away
You drive away
Oh please don't take my nightmare away.
Please don't take my nightmare away.

Johnny I think I was an angel & then I fell
& then I just kept falling
& then I just kept falling
Do-do-do-do-do-do I just keep falling?
Do-do-do-do-do-do I just keep falling?
Do-do-do-do-do-do I just keep falling?
Do-do-do-do-do-do I just keep falling?
