- LyricsAnd I'm alright standing in the streetlights here
Is this meant for me? My time on the outside is over
No, we don't know how you're spending all of your days
Knowing that love isn't here
You see the pictures but you don't know their names
- LyricsI saw a dried up river and a rich man
Turning on a garden hose
I see a young man picking up a gun
I guess that's where the money goes, yeah
Am I just as good as a bad man
- LyricsOh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, for your love
I would do anythin', I would say anythin'
I would try anythin' for your love
- LyricsEveryone loves you but they don't love you like I do
And everyone knows you but they ain't seen this side of you
I'm over the measure, one shot turns into four
And I end up injured as love turns into war
Oh, oh, oh, oh
- LyricsI wasn't gonna drink tonight
Then I went to a bar
I wasn't gonna start that fight
But they pushed me way too far
And ooh, ooh
