He wanted me
to talk to you,
It's something any friend would do.
Oh he's out in the car with his head unscrewed
and I know he'll be crying.
He's not a bad man.
He's not a child.
He's just a little volatile
but he can take you where the four winds blow
and your heart melts 'cause you know that...
Johnny's got a poet in his heart.
He's got an artist in his soul.
Too bad the drunk in Johnny's body
is the only John you know.
It wasn't love.
It wasn't hate.
Or something you premeditate.
Oh he was getting drunk
and it was getting late.
Please let me call a doctor.
He could stop the shouting
and all the noise
of Johnny's heavy party boys
all trying to take you where the four winds blow
and Elvis was singing Love Me Tender
There's a poet in his heart.
He's got an artist in his soul.
Too bad the drunk in Johnny's body
Is the only John you know.
But you could turn the light on.
Turn on the light
You could turn the light on.
Turn on the light
But if you don't want to turn it on...
we'll talk in the dark.
Must feel like your world is ending.
And I wish I could make it all... Johnny
go away.
I'm not trying to defend him
but I'm begging you
to stay... For Johnny
You say you love him
but don't you know
what a sad kind of lovin' this is?
How come you still want him so
if you're gettin' kicks instead of kisses?
Come away with me.
Move away with me.
He'll want to hold you... Always
He'll want to comfort you
and talk away everything he's done... Always
Then he'll take you where the four winds blow.
Blow by blow by blow
'til you say...
He's got a poet in his heart.
He's got an artist in his soul.
Too bad the drunk in Johnny's body
is the only John you know.
But you could turn the light on.
Turn on the light
Oh, you could turn the light on.
Turn on the light
But if you don't want to be the one
To turn it on...
We'll talk in the dark.
...the drunk in Johnny
We'll talk in the dark.
Too bad the drunk in Johnny
We'll talk in the dark.
Too bad the drunk in Johnny
Too bad the drunk in Johnny's body
Is the only John.
