At first, they were just hannah and joe. It was fall 2009. Joe wore his bell bottoms everyday, and hannah cried each week during one tree hill. Blame it on their youth. They met that winter. Bonding ensued over 3 course meals served by the fantastic Anna Terrell and a close call with angry hooligans who chased them home. It was only a matter of time before joe and hannah became The Johannas. ... more

You Just Can’t Revive
Words and Music by Hannah Lee Thompson and Joseph Hixon Terrell

Sometimes you grimace when you grin
Like I don’t know the shape your in
And there’s nothing I can do to make it better

Until you let me inside
The corners of your mind
And I begin to feel a little bit better


A lucky life’s an eye for an eye
The bad ones you just can’t revive

But I found comfort cause I know
You’ll come with me when I go
someplace I won’t return from

Home is where my heart is
The alleyways I darted
Things I can’t take part in anymore

It’s such a high cost of living
For a lowlife like myself
All the bottom feeders are the last ones on the shelf

But Brooklyn is too beautiful to spend all day in bed
Get out of the covers and shake
The cobwebs off your head


Autumn leaves have fallen
It’s clear that the fall’s been done in
Rest yourself before you come extinct

When daylight is over
Before the afternoon begins
Don’t you think

But I found comfort cause I know
You’ll come with me when I go
someplace I won’t return from
