If she wants to dance and drink all night,
Well there's no one that can stop her.
She's going until the house lights come up,
Or her stomach spills onto the floor.
This night is going to end,
When we're damn well ready for it to be over.
Worked all week long now,
The music is playing on our time.
Yeah we do what we do to get by,
And then we need a release.

You get mixed up with the wrong guys,
You get messed up on the wrong drugs.
Sometimes the party takes you places that you didn't really plan on going,
When people see the track marks on her arms.
She knows what they're thinking,
She keeps on working for that minimum.
As if a high school education gave you any other options.
They don't know nothing about redemption,
They don't know nothing about recovery.
Some people just aren't,
The type for marriage and family.

No mother ever dreams that her daughters going to grow up to be a junkie,
No mother ever dreams that her daughters going to grow up to sleep alone.
[X2]

She's out of step with the style,
She don't know where the actions happening.
You know the downtown club scene ain't nothing like it used to be,
You reach a point where there's not a lie in the world.
That you could use to make the boys believe your still in you twenties,
Well they just keep gettin younger don't they baby?
She's not waiting for them to come over and ask for the privilege,
She can still here that Rebel Yell just as loud as it was in 1983.
There ain't no Johnny coming home to share a bed with her,
And she doesn't care.

No mother ever dreams that her daughters going to grow up to be a junkie.
No mother ever dreams that her daughters going to grow up to sleep alone.
[X3]

If she had to live it all over again you know she wouldn't change,
Anything for the world.

    Its about a girl who can't find anything in the world . So she goes out and finds her own peace . In drugs, and alcohol . She needed a release , and she found one . Looking back she was okay with the choices she made . She wasn't angry , she was content . But it's also a warning to others , what could happen . Drugs and alcohol are really bad things . It can take you bad places like it says . Make you meet the wrong people . What ever the meaning is behind it , it's a great story .
