Marc Almond – The Hustler lyrics

Over there
In the cold
Stands the hustler
His eyes are old
He has seen a million ugly scenes
Places where men droop with mould
The backrooms
Where soiled goods are sold
Seen with opened eyes since frail fifteen
He has found it hard at first
But on his brow there sits a curse
For when the young must suffer
At the hands of men

Memories of christmas past
Were never there to ever last
Things as were can never
Be again

Over there
By the wall
Stands the hustler
Hes not very tall
Hes trampled by the jaded by the sly

Hes seen the darker side of men
First fascinated and then
He found his urge to laugh
An urge to cry

Hell find close friends
No friend at all
He feels so lonely, tired and small
How few are chosen from
The golden call

There's something in us all it seems
To crave adventure
Hunt for dreams
But corruption the seducer spoils our schemes
And surely as the snow will melt
The hustler
Grabs his soul and heads for home
With lessons learnt under his belt

Over there
By the wall
Stands the hustler
With the men of law
On either side to flank the sallow youth
But some of us will never learn
It takes the blow of fists to burn
How painfully we suffer for the truth
