Joan moved away to Colorado
Said she found god and a boyfriend as well
One that won't hit her or make her feel shallow
There's a lot to learn about Joan

Before I moved in, Joan had a fling with the landlord so she got to live stay for free
I'm not a genius but I figured out
There's a lot to learn from Joan

And after all this time, you were waiting on the ride, to stop at the place where they slowly misplaced your life...go get it right

I went to the closet to get dressed for work
When I spotted a box I had not seen before
With a box of all kinds of letters that never got sent to a guy in Colorado since 1994,
And I know it's wrong but I sat and opened

In no certain order a letter or two
She talked about blisters and bruises of anger
And she bought a handgun to learn how to shoot,
And the last letter said that she had to get out

But I couldn't make out the rest of the note,
From the blood stains all over,
The page of the letters.
There's a lot to learn
And there's a lot I learned about Joan

And after all this time, you were waiting on the ride, to stop at the place where you slowly misplaced your life, oh and after all this time, you were waiting on the ride, to stop at the place where they slowly misplaced your life...go get it right

Go get it right,
Go get it right,
Go get it right.

    General CommentWhat the hell you guys!?! Seriously, leave a normal comment.
    I think it's about a girl, who had a boyfriend that hit her. Then she moved to Colorado to be with a man she was having a long distance relationship with after she killed her abusive boyfriend. And Butch knew her because he lived in the same apartment as her. Something like that
