Short Change Hero

Album: The House That Dirt Built (2009)
  • I can't see where you comin' from
    But I know just what you runnin' from
    And what matters ain't the, who's baddest but
    The ones who stop you fallin' from your ladder, baby

    feel like you feelin' now
    I'm doin' things just to please your crowd
    When I love you like the way I love you
    And I suffer, but I ain't gonna cut you 'cause

    This ain't no place for no hero
    This ain't no place for no better man
    This ain't no place for no hero
    To call home

    This ain't no place for no hero
    This ain't no place for no better man
    This ain't no place for no hero
    To call home

    Every time I close my eyes, I think
    I think about you inside
    And your mother, givin' up on askin' why
    Why you lie, and you cheat, and you try to make
    A fool outta she

    I can't see where you comin' from
    But I know just what you're runnin' from
    And what matters ain't the, who's baddest but the
    Ones who stop you fallin' from your ladder, 'cause

    This ain't no place for no hero
    This ain't no place for no better man
    This ain't no place for no hero
    To call home

    This ain't no place for no hero
    This ain't no place for no better man
    This ain't no place for no hero
    To call home

    This ain't no place for no hero
    This ain't no place for no better man
    This ain't no place for no hero
    To call home Writer/s: CHRISTOPHER WILLIAM ELLUL, DANIEL MATTHEW TAYLOR, KELVIN CLAUDE SWABY, SPENCER HARRISON PAGE

  • Roxanne from MaineLove the music in "Short Change Hero"! Just watched the movie "Faster" with Duane Johnson... I had to look up the song to prove it had Ceelo Green singing... SORRY! But, even though I was wrong, please take that as a compliment! Now I can't wait to listen to the rest of your music...
