We get somethin' we both know it, we don't talk too much about it.
Ain't no real big secret; all the same, 'somehow we get around it.
Listen, it don't really matter to me.
Baby, you believe what you wanna believe.
You see, you don't have to live like a refugee.
Somewhere, somehow, somebody must have kicked you around some.
Tell me why you wanna lay there, revel in your abandon.
Honey, it don't make no difference to me.
Baby, everybody's had to fight to be free.
You see, you don't have to live like a refugee.
No baby, you don't have to live like a refugee.
Baby, we ain't the first.
I'm sure a lot of other lovers been burned.
Right now this ain't real to you.
It's one of those things you got to feel to be true.
Somewhere, somehow, somebody must have kicked you around some.
Who knows, maybe you were kidnapped, tied-up, taken away, and held for
Ransom.
Honey, it don't really matter to me.
Baby, everybody's had to fight to be free.
You see, you don't have to live like a refugee.
No, you don't have to live like a refugee.
Baby, you don't have to live like a refugee.
