Lyrics

Cry For Her

There are sleepless nights behind her mirrored shades
Scars on her arms foundation can’t erase.
But when she goes downtown she is beautiful and brave.
She can disappear.
She can be remade.
She’s a hustler. A loser.
A thief. Survivor.
Always cheating the grave.
And you trail behind her.
Love’s indentured slave.

Because she done what she did
She took what it takes
To be the runaway kid out on Avenue A
You know, she done what she did and she took what it takes
To be evicted, and addicted, and committed, and raped
I seen her going down to Bonnie Brea
I seen her going down that way

And you can die for her
But that won’t solve a thing
And you can cry for her
And by your tears be saved.

You hear sirens crying behind the rage
She’s calling you from a bus stop
She’s got nowhere now to stay
As she attaches your good name
To the shame of whose to blame.
Theres her mother and her father,
All her lovers, all her saviors
Who betrayed her like the others.
Yeah, they all left her the same
Though you gave your soul to break that chain,
She’ll never see it that way.

Because she done what she did
She took what it takes
To be the runaway kid out on Avenue A
To see her summers gone
To see it on her face
I seen her going down to Bonnie Brea
I seen her going down that way

And you can die for her
But that won’t solve a thing
And you can cry for her
And by your tears be saved.
