** The [[StalkerWithACrush otherwise kind of creepy]] lyrics of 'Johanna' are rendered decidedly sweeter and more genuine with context and this interpretation. Yes, under normal circumstances it would not be particularly romantic to swear you're going to track a young girl down and kidnap her away, and that in the meantime you'll imagine what it would be like to be holding her. When the girl in question is currently huddled in a filthy corner, terrified and alone, however... it can be read less as an unhealthy obsession and more as [[YouAreNotAlone an oath to a frightened young woman]] that he's not going to give up on[[RescueRomance saving her]] just because their path to freedom has gotten harder.
