Johnny Come Lately Lyrics by Cantatonia

 

Johnny Come Lately by Cantatonia


I'm sorry you couldn't make it
You could have seen him
So weathered and dated
He was a Johnny Come Lately
And I know that you would hate it
If you'd seen his botanical leanings
First prize exhibit and all down to good spirit
He was a Johnny Come Lately
And I know that you would hate me
If I'd envied the things that he spoke of
How I envied the things that he thought of
He was a Johnny Come Lately
And I know that you would hate me
If I told you that I made some time
To stay behind the final line and make the garden grow
Where the sun no longer shines
If I asked too many questions
And stayed behind the final line and made the garden grow
But he never ever gave away the secret of his godforsaken soil
He didn't need us
Just tempted and teased us
You could have been here
Wishing you were here
This was a Johnny Come Lately
And I know that you would hate me
He was a Johnny Come Lately
And I know that you would hate me
If I told you that I made some time
To stay behind the final line and make the garden grow
Where the sun no longer shines
He assured the seeds you sold were sound
But I must have cast them all on stony ground
And now the sun won't shine
I must have asked too many questions
And stayed behind the final line and made the garden grow
But he never ever gave away the secret of his godforsaken soil
