  • Tired of sleeping on the sidewalk
    Working at the bus stop night 'til morning
    Tired and waiting for the sunlight
    When it comes, it's still dark where I'm going

    Don't, don't punish me for what I feel
    Don't, don't punish me for what I feel

    So I crawled out of the back door
    Took off all these tight clothes
    Jumped into the water
    So I crawled out of the back door
    Took off all these tight clothes
    Jumped into the water
    I jumped into the water
    The water

    Vicious demons on the TV
    So I sold it on 16th St
    But I still hear the drone
    Now I'm 'bout to get off this night shift
    Do you think I could get a lift?
    I don't care where you're going

    Don't, don't punish me for what I feel
    Don't, don't punish me for what I feel

    So I crawled out of the back door
    Took off all these tight clothes
    Jumped into the water
    So I crawled out of the back door
    Took off all these tight clothes
    Jumped into the water
    I jumped into the water
    The water

    My face was numb, my lungs were sore
    But still I swam until my feet could touch the shore
    Now I've been sleeping on your porch
    I'm still too scared to bust the lock on your door

    So I crawled out of the back door
    Took off all these tight clothes
    Jumped into the water
    So I crawled out of the back door
    Took off all these tight clothes
    Jumped into the water
    I jumped into the water
    The water
