lyrics

Thought I could do it
Save you from the government
So I knew I had to try
Come and see you again
Ten years back, I saw you first, floatin' down the concrete halls
Ten years later, it's not the same, with the wires on the walls
And now, living anew is so very hard to do, my baby

Thought you could tell me
The bad days are gonna end
Seemed like it'd be better
To try it out with a friend
But every time I asked for a hand, they gave me that small change
I tried to align these thoughts of mine, but their hearts seemed out of range
And now, living anew is so very hard to do, my baby

Cry for me one time
'Cause the tears dried up long ago
Cry for me once more
Why I weep you'll never know

Thought I was ready
To reckon with their ways
Wading through the earthy muck
For a few more days
I keep trying to get to where I can start to walk the line
And keep my rights, 'cause I don't like to waste my precious time
And now, living anew is so very hard to do, my baby

Cry for me again
'Cause the tears ran out long ago
Cry for me some more
Why I weep you'll never know
