  • Hey child
    You've got blood
    On your doorstep

    Long nights
    Cheap talk
    Strange forces

    How long
    Can you hold
    Hold down your resistance

    Hey child
    You don't know
    No baby, you don't know your own existence

    And in the ruins of the nights that we went
    Writing numbers on our arms
    But when you wake up to find there's nothing there
    Don't you know your future's almost gone

    Hey child
    Better get it right on you
    Hey child
    You got so many better things to do

    Hey child
    You've got dogs
    Dogs that guard your weakness

    All your wounded men
    Oh baby, don't you know that they're useless

    Don't light this burning love
    When the streets are cold and wet
    You're just a face without a name
    But when you wake up and find there's nothing there
    Oh honey, baby, ain't it a shame

    Hey child
    You better get it right on you
    Hey child
    You got so many better things to do
    Hey child
    No you ain't found it yet
    Hey child
    You better quit placing all those bets
    Hey child
    No, no, no, no, no
    Hey child
    You're gonna get it right, on you
    Hey child (whoa) Writer/s: Jeremy Ivey, Margo Price
