Maggie Rogers – James lyrics

[Verse 1]
“Too young, too thoughtless,” I said to myself
With idealistic visions all perched on the shelf
And I’m still hoping, waiting for you to come home

[Verse 2]
May your snow capped mountains carry you far
May they stand as protectors wherever you are
May you stay safe and happy all of your days

[Chorus 1]
Oh James
Oh James

[Verse 3]
Maybe you’re in love or hung up on another
Maybe you found a far prettier lover
Maybe you’ll paint her a picture like you did for me

[Verse 4]
You color your world with that Neverland smile
But it goes dark in pieces every once in a while
And on my birthday I told you, “Dont worry, there’ll be other days.”

[Chorus 2]
Oh James
Oh James
Oh James
Oh James

[Verse 5]
I’ll always be happy if you choose to call
Or write me a letter saying all that you saw and
How things have changed since our days there on Noxontown Pond

[Verse 6]
No don’t be a stranger, no don’t go too far
And though you love places that have lots of stars
Just know in the city, you’ll always have a place to stay

[Chorus 2]
Oh James
Oh James
Oh James
Oh James

[Chorus 2]
Oh James
Oh James
Oh James
Oh James

[Chorus 2]
Oh James
Oh James
Oh James
Oh James

MGMT – James Lyrics

[Verse 1]
James
If you heed the call
And you go outside, and wander off
Then home is there
Wherever you will make it
You can always say, “Who’s laughing now?”

[Verse 2]
James
If you need a friend
Come right over
Don’t even knock
And I’ll be home
The door is always open
And we both can say, “Who’s laughing now?”

[Chorus]
Oh James
My little doll
You just go outside and you call
Oh James
Oh you’re never too far off

[Instrumental Bridge]

[Chorus]
Oh James
My little doll
You just go outside and you call
Oh James
No, you’re never too far off

[Verse 3]
If your fire’s out
There’s no need to shout
I’m always home
And walk on in
I’ll make you tea and breakfast
And we both can say, “Who’s laughing now?”

[Outro]
Oh James
Oh James
Oh James
No, you’re never too far off (James)
No, you’re never too far off
