about

"Jimmy" is inspired by my admiration for a coworker from my restaurant job as well as my love for the heart-wrenching music of Amy Winehouse.

lyrics

His past was blow, but she kept hold
and soon he kicked his habit
He says he's old, but I'm not sold
I catch onto his tactics.

So when we go out, we shoot the shit
While he looks at me, I'm charmed by him
Oh and he drinks five, while I take three-
He sets me straight

Never second guess, that's what he taught me
better than the rest, oh Jimmy-
sets me straight, when I wonder how life can be

To sail the world is how he's heard
but he's tied to those who need him
I fear he's bored, he goes toward
Mr. Captain of his freedom

So when we go out, we shoot the shit
While he looks at me, I'm charmed by him
Oh and he drinks five, while I take three-
He sets me straight

Never second guess, that's what he taught me
better than the rest, oh Jimmy-
sets me straight, when I wonder how life can be

Like everybody told me, you're a curious case
and I question those who doubt you, and I think it's a disgrace
but nobody sees you like I do
and nobody gets you like I do

Never second guess, that's what he taught me
better than the rest, oh Jimmy-
sets me straight, when I wonder how life can be
