Joelene

about

Anyone in a band knew this girl. The one that was part fan, manager, mother hen. This song is a tribute to that girl, being 23, growing up, and growing apart.

lyrics

Joelene
When you hang with my band
Doing all that you can
To promote what we’re doing that’s special (Joelene)

We’re gonna make your friends so proud (Joelene)
We’re gonna play so goddamn loud (Joelene)

Joelene
When you hang with my band
Doing all that you can
To promote what we’re doing that’s special

Joelene
You’re our number one fan
You’re the the one with a plan
Gonna make us so famous, we love you, Joelene

Our drummer got your friends backstage (Joelene)
And we won’t tell you’re underage (Joelene)

Joelene
When you hang with my band
Doing all that you can
To promote what we’re doing that’s special

Joelene
You’re our number one fan
You’re the the one with a plan
Gonna make us so famous, oh yeah

You graduated from our school (Joelene)
You disappeared, it wasn’t cool (Joelene)

Your fandom
Abandoned
We lost you to the real world

We’re hurting
Diverting
Away from making this happen…

There were fights over girls
Creative differences
You’re the glue, please don’t leave us, Joelene

This is hard, this is life
And we don’t a guide
Don’t forget that we need you, Joelene…

Joelene
When you hang with my band
Doing all that you can
To promote what we’re doing that’s special

Joelene
You’re our number one fan
You’re the the one with a plan
Gonna make us so famous, we love you, Joelene
