Imogen Joy: "Just to Make Sure"

Released March14, 2020






Just as low as the lows were

High were the highs

So afraid of myself

I went out every night

A roller coaster

no engineer in sight

Pull me closer

if that’s what you’d like


When I came for my mail

you left it in the hall, as if it hurt your eyes

Next to some clothes folded so neatly

They almost scream oh please just leave for good this time

But still I couldn’t help lingering outside of your door

Just to make sure, there was nothing else

I was leaving behind


(Something yells inside of me are you stupid please don’t stay here, but if I could see your face think I’d remember why I came here)


There’s blood on the horizon

There’s poison in the dew

My love was violent

My love was true

Behind a velvet rope

Tour guides lead people past our room

Here's the dinosaurs of love

What killed them sleeps inside of you


When I came for my mail

you left it in the hall, as if it hurt your eyes

Next to some clothes folded so neatly

They almost scream oh please just leave for good this time

But still I couldn’t help lingering outside of your door

Just to make sure, there was nothing else

I was leaving behind


(Something yells inside of me are you stupid please don’t stay here, but if I could see your face think I’d remember why I came here)


Wish there was a bubble

I could hold you forever in

But you're turning purple

There’s no oxygen

On a beach in Varadero

Stars fall down like plane crashes

I complained it was so early

But you said as I get older

I'll realize sunrises are so much better

than sunsets


Mushrooms float in my tea

Like lily pads

I dance in the street

I let the world collapse

A magician's science project

We're one person cut in half

A comedy,

That’s love

If you're brave enough to laugh


When I came for my mail

you left it in the hall, as if it hurt your eyes

Next to some clothes folded so neatly

They almost scream oh please just leave for good this time

But still I couldn’t help lingering outside of your door

Just to make sure, there was nothing else

I was leaving behind


(Something yells inside of me are you stupid please don’t stay here, but if I could see your face think I’d remember why I came here)
