Small Town Heroes

This song is by Hurray for the Riff Raff and appears on the album Small Town Heroes (2014).

She was the queen
And she got all her drugs for free
She walked up to her daddy's door
He said, "You don't live here anymore"
She wanted love, wanted love
Oh, but she just couldn't get enough, enough

And my man, he wanders 'round
Well, he lays all those young women down
And they say, 'Darling, oh, can't you stay?"
And he says, "Baby, already on my way"
They wanted love, wanted love
Oh, but they just couldn't get enough, enough

Well, all these people, and all these things
Now, what's the point in a wedding ring?
'Cause we might not be here, when next year comes
Well, I guess you gotta watch your back and carry a gun

Oh, baby girl, where did you go?
I threw you out where the cold wind blows
Are you in Vidalia with your no-good mom?
I just couldn't watch you stick it in your arm

You wanted love, wanted love
Oh, but I just couldn't give enough, enough

And from the Boogie Down to Bowling Green
I rode the night train to infinity

Well, I tempted fate, and I acted smart
Oh, I grew some callous on my heart
I wanted love, wanted love
Oh, but I just couldn't give enough, enough

Well, all these places, yeah, all these towns
Now, what's the point in settling down?
'Cause we might not be here when next year comes
So you better live it like you're on the run
Hmm hmm hmm
Hmm hmm hmm
