Josephine, I have seen you on the sidewalk
Throwing troubles just like flowers to passers by
Don't weigh us down, though we have too many anchors
And like you we want to sail into the sea

I never had the chance to grow up
Into what they wanted me to be
Every rainbow has an end
And it's where the color is leaving

Josephine, keep your sunlight in our windows
We are rusting like the silos full of grain
Josephine, is it true that all state children
We will one day be forgotten by our names

I never had the chance to grow up
Into what they wanted me to be
Every rainbow has an end
And it's where the color is leaving

Josephine, I was written in the skyline
You must leave before your time
Don't let us die for we need your hands to cling to
A doorway we can walk through to heaven

I never had the chance to grow up
Into what they wanted me to be
Every rainbow has an end
And it's where the color is leaving
