Imogen Joy: "Milenko & His Wife"

Released June 5, 2020






I don’t think it’s true

A part of you

Is closing itself off like it’s going out of business

That’s just what you say when you’re

Afraid, cause your dad loved your mom

While he fucked a lot of women

It made you devoted,

Like a cult member

It made you chaotic,

With a soft centre

your world’s so pretty

Colourful and smashed up

It’s a one time ride, I put my hands up


I don’t think you’d ever love again

I’m your pilot I’m your finale

Like Milenko and his wife

I’d dance with you all night and

they’d think yea some things are just supposed to be


some things are just supposed to be


I don’t think it’s true

A part of you

Was built only for me and sectioned off for 26 years

I’d like to think I came

So out of the blue

I destroyed your little town and all the ghosts that lived there

Spooky just to think we

Almost never met

If you had watched those fireworks

For even one minute

Your Russian wife would be making tea

But at the bottom of your glass

the leaves would look like me


I don’t think you’d ever love again

I’m your pilot I’m your finale

Like Milenko and his wife

I’d dance with you all night and

they’d think yea some things are just supposed

to be


I hold you so pathetically tight

When we’re together

Cause I know forever isn’t really forever


I don’t think I’d ever love again

You’re all my pain, all my ecstasy

Like Milenko and his wife

I’d dance with you all night and

they’d think yea some things are just supposed to be

some things are just supposed to be

some things are just supposed to be
