lifeblood: songs: lyrics: baby girl


they say
this town
the stars stay up all night
well i
don't know
can't see 'em
for the glow of the neon lights
and it's a
long way from here
to the place where the home fires burn
well it's
two thousand miles and one left turn

dear mom and dad
please send money
i'm so broke
that it ain't funny
well i don't need much
just enough to get me through
please don't worry
cause i'm alright
see i'm playing here
at the bar tonight
well this time
i'm gonna make our dreams
come true
well i love you more
than anything in the world
love
your baby girl

black top
blue sky
big town
full of little white lies
well everybody's your friend
you can never be sure
they'll promise
fancy cars
and diamond rings
and all sorts of shiny things
well
girl you'll remember
what your knees are for

dear mom and dad
please send money
i'm so broke
that it ain't funny
i don't need much
just enough to get me through
please don't worry
cause i'm alright
see i'm playing here
at the bar tonight
well this time
i'm gonna make our dreams
come true
well i love you more
than anything in the world
love
your baby girl

i know that
i'm on my way
well i can tell
every time i play
and i know it's worth
all the dues i'll pay
when i can write
to you and say

dear mom and dad
i'll send money
i'm so rich
that it ain't funny
well it ought to be more
than enough to get you through
please don't worry
cause i'm alright
see i'm staying here
at the ritz tonight
well what do ya know
we made our dreams come true
and there are fancy cars
and diamond rings
but you know that
they don't mean a thing
well they all add up to nothing
compared to you
well remember me
in ribbons and curls
i still love you more
than anything in the world
love
your baby girl

here we go

your baby girl
(dear mom and dad)
(please send money)
(i'm so broke)
(that it ain't funny)
(i don't need much)
(just enough to get me through)
your baby girl
(please don't worry)
(cause i'm alright)
(see i'm playing here)
(at the bar tonight)
(ooo ooo ooo ooo ooo ooo ooo ooo ooo ooo ooo)
(dreams come true)
