So long ago, I don’t remember whenThat’s when they say I lost my only friendWell they said she died easy of a broken heart diseaseAs I listened through the cemetery treesI seen the sun comin’ up at the funeral at dawnThe long broken arm of human lawNow it always seemed such a wasteShe always had a pretty faceSo I wondered how she hung around this placeChorus:Hey, come on try a littleNothing is foreverThere’s got to be something better thanIn the middleBut me & cinderellaWe put it all togetherWe can drive it homeWith one headlightShe said it’s coldIt feels like independence dayAnd I can’t break away from this paradeBut there’s got to be an openingSomewhere here in front of meThrough this maze of ugliness and greedAnd I seen the sun up aheadAt the county line bridgeSayin’ all there’s good and nothingness is deadWe’ll run until she’s out of breathShe ran until there’s nothin’ leftShe hit the end-it’s just her window ledge(chorus)Well this place is oldIt feels just like a beat up truckI turn the engine, but the engine doesn’t turnWell it smells of cheap wine & cigarettesThis place is always such a messSometimes I think I’d like to watch it burnI’m so alone, and I feel just like somebody elseMan, I ain’t changed, but I know I ain’t the sameBut somewhere here in between the city walls of dyin’ dreamsI think her death it must be killin’ me(chorus)
