Hey Joni lyrics

hey joni, put it all behind you
hey joni, now i’ve put it all behind me, too
these times can’t add up, your life’s such a mess
forget the past, and just say yes

tell me joni, am i the one
to see you through?
in this broken town, can you still jack in
and know what to do?
i remember our youth, our high ideals
i remember you were so uptight
the time in the trees, we broke that vice
we took some steps and now we can’t think twice

tell me joni, am i right by you?
tell me how you’re gonna lose this hard luck?
hey joni, when will all these dreams come true?
you better find a way to climb down off that truck

shots ring out, from the center of an empty field
joni’s in the tall grass
she’s a beautiful metal jukebox
a sailboat explosion
a snap of electric whipcrack

she’s not thinking about the future
she’s not spinning her wheels
she doesn’t think at all about the past
she thinking long and hard
about that high wild sound
and wondering will it last?

kick it

hey joni, put it all behind you
there’s something turning, turning right to you
my head burns, but i know you’ll speak the truth, hey!
hey joni, put it all behind you
hey joni, now i’ve put it all behind me, too
forget the future, these times are such a mess
tune out the past, and just say yes

it’s 1963
it’s 1964
it’s 1957
it’s 1962

put it all behind you
now it’s all behind you
