Street To Nowhere – They're Not Like Us lyrics

When I'd cross my arms and hope to cry if caught smoking,
You weren't sleeping
We never said a thing.
And I tried to leap from your front seat on the freeway,
But you held me,
You said now what a waste.
Your mark was cut in me
No they're not like us
We bled in empathy
No they're not like us
And oh when the world don't care for you
I do
They were quick to say you're overweight and lonesome,
And you believed them, you said what girl could love.
And they broke your arm in the schoolyard on the concrete,
I was watching, we never said a thing.

They never felt the sting
No they're not like us
We fell for everything
No they're not like us
And oh when the world the world don't care for you...
