The bartender’s friend sold us something I think was probably coriander
4th quarter / Hail Mary / Wide receiver / Hail Caesar /
The guy we’ve been waiting for / Came up from the catacombs /
Walked into the bathroom / Put it under the trashcan /
And I went in after /

Do you even remember? /
They used to call us Junebug and Jester /
They used to call us Jester and June
We used to have our own tune /
We used to sing it in church /
Then it got worse /

We put too much faith / Gave too much cash /
To that one creepy kid at the carwash /
He said he could make a few calls /
But I don’t think that he made any calls
Well, we probably should have tried the guy with the Dracula cape /
Because other than the cape he was cool /
He had that wild kind of sadness /
Like he knew something important /

I wonder if he even remembers /
They used call us Junebug and Jester /
They used to call us Jester and June
We were laughing making jokes / Laughing making jokes /
Smiling in the smoke /
They used to call us Junebug and Jester
We would drink and fall in love /
Drink and fall in love / Fall around the clubs /
They used to call us Jester and June
We used to know all the tunes /
We used to have our own church / But then it got worse

Now honestly, officer / That’s a really good question /
I’m just kind of distracted / By those jangling handcuffs /
And the flashlights in our eyes /
Too much faith in desperate guys /
Too much fun in eight straight summers /
Do you remember Junebug and Jester? /

Now we’re called Justin and Jane
We tried to push through the pain /
We tried to work through the hurt /
We tried to build our own church
Now the cops got our names as Justin and Jane /
The only people waiting at the carwash in the rain /
The clubs have all changed / The buildings fell away /
We were hoping that this corner might remember Junebug and Jester
