​Red Headed Stepchild

This song is by Golden Smog and appears on the album Down By The Old Mainstream (1995).


Hello darkness, come on in
Let me light a candle
Imaginations running
Hands start to tremble

Knows enough to know not to believe
What is real and what it seems to be
Knows what's keeping him from being free
Right outside your door

Don't run away
Red headed stepchild
I can only promise you won't find your way back home

In another room there's laughing
Entertaining strangers
Walls in there don't breathe no more
But they're keeping out some angels

Laughed so much, he almost cried
Stranger offers him a ride
City blocks, they roll on by
Never coming back

Don't run away
Red headed stepchild
I can only promise you won't find your way back home

Take your pictures off my wall
I hate to look at strangers
Then it's burning be forewarned
Keep me out of danger

Knows enough to know not to believe
What is real and what it seems to be
Knows what's keeping him from being free
Right outside your door

Don't run away
Red headed stepchild
I can only promise you won't find your way back home

Don't run away
Red headed stepchild
I can only promise you won't find your way back home
Find your way back home
