Queensryche – Della Brown lyrics

Youve got a cardboard house
Live there all the time
Keep your memories tied with string
The face that many once adored
Twenty years gone maybe more
Somewhere you lost the dream
Mama watched your every move, but now you're all alone

Shes been gone for awhile
Daddy left some time ago, fading years pass too slow
Hes the only one, could make you smile
Oh, you're still crying

Big city bound
Gona make your mark
Read your name in the lights
All the ads and people say, beauty lets you get you way
Tried your best to prove them right

But living on the streets aint bad, sad people make you glad
Pardon me, could you spare some change
-oh, you're still crying-

Street corner girl
Watch the crowd go by
Fill your tin can with life
Summer days tend to slip away
Like your men you couldn't make them stay
Hard to choose, whiskey or a wife
Sometimes you wonder wheres the end
Where you goin where you been?
Happiness seems so hard to win
Most never care to find
Della brown sees it al the time
Looking for that man to make her smile again
