lyrics

Verse 1:
Joshie was a good man
But no one understood him
Joshie wrote his feelings
in a book of poems
Joshie had the wisdom
But he never had no children
Had a reoccurring nightmare
he’d live life all alone

Hook:
And when he did
He laid down
He tried to cope
And turn his life around

Chorus:
He’d have lived and died his life alone
had he not gone out and got himself a backbone
You should know that I’m not the one to boast
But I must say I’m the one that gave Joshie hope

Verse 2:
Joshie is the reason
that Bradley is still living
Because he gave Bradley
some much needed ambition
he saw a fixer upper
who needed a picker upper
and while talking sense to Joshie
saw the comparison

Hook 2:
And so he stayed
and sat Joshie down
And told him why
he should stick around

Chorus:
He’d have lived and died his life alone
had he not gone out and got himself a backbone
You should know that I’m not the one to boast
But I must say I’m the one that gave Joshie hope
He’d have lived and died his life alone
had he not gone out and got himself a backbone
You should know that I’m not the one to boast
But I must say I’m the one that gave Joshie hope

Bridge:
Hope is the faith residing in you and me
Hope is what saves people like you me and Joshie
Hope is the faith residing in you and me
Hope is what saves people like you me and Joshie

Chorus:
He’d have lived and died his life alone
had he not gone out and got himself a backbone
You should know that I’m not the one to boast
But I must say I’m the one that gave Joshie hope
He’d have lived and died his life alone
had he not gone out and got himself a backbone
You should know that I’m not the one to boast
But I must say I’m the one that gave Joshie hope
