Hard way of livin'



The lights come on, she takes the floor
The crowd inside applaudes
And it’s over

She doesn’t need to go with you, but she takes
Her chance hopin’ you will be gentle

For she longs to be the object of affection to a man
And she let all the words that he whispers, softly take her breath away

Tired now, she lies awake
With all those lonely years comin’down around her

Now what’s it for a ten minute show a five minute man
To make her feel like nothin’ again

But she longs to be the object of affection to a man
And she let all the words that he whispers, softly
Take her pain away
The roof creaks from above
And she hears the sound of headboards makin’love
And she wonders are they happy or are they just like her

So another night is lost again
And the good old sun peeks in like a friend
Someone she knows
The bags are packed, it’s time to go
A call to the man outside it’s another show

Still she longs to be the object of affection to a man
And she let all the words that he whispers
Softly take her life away
