Mel Street – Lovin' On Back Streets lyrics

We try to pick the most unlikely places

Where no one's apt to know us by our name

And for a while we share the sweet affection

That makes it worth the sorrow and the shame

Of lovin' on back streets and livin' on main

Sufferin' hell through the daylight for the heaven darkness brings

Two hearts in the shadows tradin' passion for pain

Of lovin' on back streets and livin' on main

[ fiddle ]

In the morning when I face the one who owns me

And she comfronts me with some things I can't explain

Then once again I hate myself for living

And wonder just how long my mind can stand the strain

Of lovin' on back streets...

Lovin' on back streets and livin' on main
