Sleep on the Ground


Cardboard Room

Lyrics

 

I'm walking on nails, I'm riding the rails. Making the best of a bad time. I'm wondering away on the highway, another hundred miles to the exit sign.

 

You know there's people talking about you. You don't let that bring you down. You only come here 'cause you want to catch a break, or make a play for a good time.

 

You're doing okay, you're uptown in every way. And nothing’s hard it's the same, day in and out.

 

A silver spoon and a house on the hill. Well, I'm begging for a dollar bill. Twenty years have gone since we said goodbye.

 

I'll sleep on the ground tonight. Tell the kids that I'll be alright. I saw their faces for the last time.

 

I'll sleep on the ground tonight. Tell the kids that I'll be alright. I saw their faces for the last time.
