Back Away

This song is by Elkie Brooks and appears on the album Electric Lady (2005).

Kids'd always tease him
You know how they can be
Mum and dad would leave him
Father beat him constantly
When he grew into a young man
The girls would gather 'round
No-one ever reached him
He was too shy to ask them out

The town was disbelieving
Was it Luke that robbed the store
Always such a nice boy
Said the lady from next door
How could he be so desperate
To go with such a plan
The devil must have got him
Shouted father from the van

(Back away from the door he cried)
(Back away from the door or die)
(Back away from the door he cried)
(Back away from the door or die)

He started out on vodka
Sniffing glue to ease the pain
Then he'd smoke a little crack
Now it's heroin and cocaine

(Back away from the door he cried)
(Back away from the door or die)
(Back away from the door he cried)
Back away
(Back away from the door or die)
(Back away from the door he cried)
Back away
(Back away from the door or die)
(Back away from the door he cried)
Back away
(Back away from the door or die)
(Back away from the door he cried)
Come on Luke, give it up
(Back away from the door or die)
For the sake of our unborn child

They battered down the door
She pleaded I'm his wife
Nobody would listen, it was too late
They took his life

(Back away from the door he cried)
(Back away from the door or die)
Like it was nothing
(Back away from the door he cried)
They took his life
(Back away from the door or die)
(Back away from the door he cried)
(Back away from the door or die)
They took his life
(Back away from the door he cried)
Back away
(Back away from the door or die)

(Back away, back away, back away from the door)
(Back away, back away, back away from the door)
(Get back)
(Back away, back away, back away from the door)
(Get back)
(Back away, back away, back away from the door)
They took his life
Get back
