There was Johnny like a stranger, living in a small town, measuring the
Small time
He was thinner than a razor, Johnny in a small town
Living with his finger on the trigger, wishing he could be just a little
Bit bigger
Bored to the heart of himself
He was trouble in the making, trouble in the keeping, history repeating
He was walking into danger, Johnny in a small town
Looking for a light in a tunnel, creeping in the dark
And doubting if the sun'll shine to the heart of himself
And he tells himself it'll be all right, happiness is just around the
Corner
And he tells himself it'll be okay, happiness is just a life away
She was pretty as a picture, shining in a window, everybody said so
What did Johnny have to give her, Johnny in a small town
Putting on a suit he had borrowed, knowing she would probably leave him
Tomorrow
Leave him alone with himself
And he tells himself it'll be all right, happiness is just around the
Corner
And he tells himself it'll be okay, happiness is just a life away
Everything is different but it's all the same to him
Everything is nothing like it was, before she came, before she stayed,
And went away
She left Johnny like a stranger, waiting in a small town, measuring the
Small time
Nights were longer than the days were, living in a small town
Looking for a door he could open, hoping that he wouldn't break
Until he'd broken free to the heart of himself
And he tells himself it'll be all right, happiness is just around the
Corner
And he tells himself it'll be okay, happiness is just a life away
