lyrics

Born of a hussy mother, so you got a hussy mind…
You’re out on the streets; oh you’ll be lucky if you survive,
The world is big; the nights are long; and people not so kind;
And nobody’s wondering if you’re gonna make it through the night…

But somewhere inside you know
That there is more than a lonely life,
So find that love that you’ve been missing,
That you deserve, that you desire…

And don’t let’em tell you Hallie
How to live all nine o’ your lives…
They got only one and still they fill it
With so many lies…
They’ll go to the ground and wonder why it
Was so tough just to be alive,
So if you won’t, then I won’t, and we’ll be fine…

You got a new home, but ain’t it funny? Old habits don’t die…
Your new mother’s gone and you are looking for a way to get outside,
The world is big; your nights are long; and curiosity nigh;
What momma don’t know won’t hurt’er Hallie, but will it kill you in time…

‘Cause there was a time when you’d
Have given all to have what you have,
So let the love replace the hissing,
Oh give it a chance to grow inside…

And don’t let’em tell you Hallie
How to live all nine o’ your lives…
They got only one and still they fill it
With so many lies…
They’ll go to the ground and wonder why it
Was so tough just to be alive,
So if you won’t, then I won’t, and we’ll be fine…

Oh Hallie if you don’t, I promise I won’t,
And we’ll be fine…
