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 

Didja get your head lost in a daydream? 
Cinderella, waiting for her charming 
Did ya 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? 
Ah, can you shine the light? 
Oh, please can you shine some light? 
Yeah, can you shine the light? 
Shine the light on a shadow 

Josephina, would you lay down your defenses? 
So I can make sense of 
Those colors fading to grey 
It's not that you're hiding 
Something, I'd never imply 
Yesteryear I may be gone 
Can't say the same for today 

Yeah, Josephina! 

Ah, 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 
Can you shine the light? 
Ah, can you shine the light? 
Yeah, please can you shine some light? 
Yeah, can you shine the light? 
Yeah, can you shine the light? 
Shine the light on a shadow 

(Ah-ah-ah) 
(Ah-ah-ah) 
(Ah-ah-ah)
