Playing: Johnny Boy - Twenty One Pilots

"Johnny Boy"

He stays home from work this time.
He never really told his wife.
He never really told a lie,
But this time he decides that it's alright.
It's alright.

No one really knows his mind
And no one knows behind his eyes
The man deserves a medal,
But he's never really won a prize
Before.
He goes to lock the door.

He has fallen in love.
He knows it's enough.
But the world looks down and frowns.

Get up, Johnny boy, get up, Johnny boy,
Get up 'cause the world has left you lying on the ground.
You're my pride and joy,
You're my pride and joy.
Get up, Johnny boy, because we all need you now.

We all need you now.

Someone said, "Away you go."
And someone said to you, "Goodbye."
They deflect
The disrespect
When they say that they blame it on the times.
They blame it on the time.

We all know you're qualified
To fix a chair and love your wife.
They all know you're qualified
But they lie when they blame it on the times.
Oh, we blame it on the times.

He has fallen in love.
He knows it's enough.
But the world looks down and frowns.

Get up, Johnny boy, get up, Johnny boy,
Get up 'cause the world has left you lying on the ground.
You're my pride and joy,
You're my pride and joy.
Get up, Johnny boy, because we all need you now.

We all need you now.

I will carry all your names
And I will carry all your shame.
And I will carry all your names
And I will carry all your shame.
And I will carry all your names
And I will carry all your shame.

[2x]
Get up, Johnny boy, get up, Johnny boy,
Get up 'cause the world has left you lying on the ground.
You're my pride and joy,
You're my pride and joy.
Get up, Johnny boy, because we all need you now.
