"Josephine" as written by and Frank Turner....
I heard the name Josephine
It came to me in dream
And I don't usually set too much store by the things that these things might mean
It was spoken with seriousness
More of a whisper than a scream
Now, I'm waiting on this Josephine
To show herself to me

Could have been anyone
I imagined, I could be
I just needed somebody
To show me how to be
I could have been Napoleon
Could have been Beethoven
Could have been anyone, but uncomfortable me
So come on now Josephine, show yourself to me

So come on now Josephine give me what I need
I don't like to be needy but sometimes needs
Must, I can't stand being the person that I've been
I'm an impending car crash
I'm the first one on the scene
I'm a defeated commander
I'm a tone-deaf composer
I'm a strange name whispered in a dream

Could have been anyone
I imagined, I could be
I just needed somebody
To show me how to be
I could have been Napoleon
Could have been Beethoven
Could have been anyone, but uncomfortable me
So come on now Josephine, show yourself to me

So come on now Josephine
Let's pretend it's Halloween
You come as a car crash
And I'll go as James Dean
I'm Napoloeon on Elba
And you're a hundred days in 1815
I wrote all of these letters to my immortal beloved
You're the only one who's ever gonna know what they mean

Come on now Josephine
Show yourself to me
Could have been anyone
But I ended up being me
Could have been runaway
Could have been what you need
I wish that I was anyone except for just me
So come on now Josephine
Show yourself to me
Come on now Josephine
Show yourself to me
Come on now Josephine
Show yourself to me
Come on now Josephine
Show yourself to me
