lyrics

Mamma said she saw you just the other day
living on the other side of town
smiling when you can, while people pass you by
and making the best of sleeping on the ground

These days your head’s so heavy you can’t hold it up
the sun in shining bright and you can’t sleep
you’ll find a darkened alley where you can shut your eyes
and think of all the things you couldn’t keep

You’re drinking to dream
cause you’re threadbare at the seams
did you choose this life honey or did it choose you?
well you wish you could forget when you’re bumming cigarettes
that the love you could have had is gone for good

Waiting on a handout and hoping for some change
that won’t ever come cause you’re too drunk to see
she tried to give you love but you refused
and instead devoted yourself to the streets

You’re drinking to dream
cause you’re threadbare at the seams
did you choose this life honey or did it choose you?
well you wish you could forget when you’re bumming cigarettes
that the love you could have had is gone for good
