lyrics

WALK OF SHAME

I see a man as I walk down the street
His heart as dark as night
He’s so tired he can barely sleep
Underneath this city’s light
People smile as they walk on by
And turn their eyes away
He hangs his head and he starts to cry
Here’s nothing left to say. Its LA

Picks up his bag, leaves his living room
Walks towards the den
“You fucking bum” is all he hears from some
It’s the same tonight again
He lays down behind a garbage can
So no one can see
Locks himself into his new bedroom
While you and I hold a key

I’ve seen nothing in this life
Compared to what is faced each night
Would I stand apart or would I stand the same
Would I spend my own life upon this walk of shame

I see a woman, beautiful moment
A child in her hands
Her baby sighs at the sweetest lies
She pick garbage from the cans
Her dreams are faded as the pavement stars
But with two lives to feed
She’ll keep dancing in the topless bar
Its that sweetest side of greed

I’ve seen nothing in this life
Compared to what is faced each night
Would I stand apart or would I stand the same
Would I spend my own life upon this walk of shame
