Josephina Lyrics

by Van Halen

Josephina, there's so much I want to know
I've known you for all of mine but not all of yours
You're not a stranger, no, nothing could be further
I look back and I wonder, what you were like, long before?

Josephina, If I asked you, would you tell me?
The fact from the fancy and the dreams in between
Tell me a story all about yours truly
Photographs from the past imagine the mystery

Did you get your head lost in a day dream?
Is Cinderella, waiting for her charming?
Did you break a heart, like little girls often do?
Pigtails and painted toes, all dressed up in your mother's clothes

Can you shine the light?
Ohh can you shine the light?
Ohh please can you shine some light?
Yea can you shine the light?
Shine the light on a shadow

Josephina, would you lay down your defenses?
So I could make sense of those colors fading to gray
Not that you're hidin' somethin' I'd never imply
Yesteryear may be gone can't say the same for today

Yea Josephina
Like Josephina

How else am I to know, that all the while
There was a mischievous look, behind that smile?
It's hard to tell, when innocence comes and goes
I'm sure that there were times life could be unkind
Without a shoulder to cry on

Then you shine the light
Ohh can you shine the light?
Yea please can you shine some light?
Yea can you shine the light?
Yea can you shine the light?
Shine the light on a shadow

Ahh ahh
Ahh ahh
Ahh
