  • All alone she was living
    In a world without an end or beginning
    Baby girl was living life for the feeling
    But I don't mind, I don't mind, oh
    And all the wrongs she committed
    She was numb and she was so co-dependent
    She was young and all she had was the city
    But I don't mind, I don't mind

    And I know (know) that she's capable of anything, it's riveting
    But when (when) you wake up she's always gone, gone, gone, oh

    In the night she hears him calling
    In the night she's dancing to relieve the pain
    She'll never walk away (I don't think you understand)
    In the night when she comes crawling
    Dollar bills and tears keep falling down her face
    She'll never walk away (I don't think you understand)

    He sang a song when he did it
    He was cold and he was so unforgiving
    Now she dances to the song on the minute
    Yeah, all the time (all the time), all the time (all the time), oh
    It make her weak when she hear it
    And it got her on her knees like religion
    She was young and she was forced to be a woman
    Yeah, all the time (all the time), all the time (all the time)

    And I know (know) that she's capable of anything, it's riveting
    But when (when) you wake up she's always gone, gone, gone, oh

    In the night she hears him calling
    In the night she's dancing to relieve the pain
    She'll never walk away (I don't think you understand)
    In the night when she comes crawling (yeah)
    Dollar bills and tears keep falling down her face (falling down her face)
    She'll never walk away (I don't think you understand, oh babe)

    I don't think you understand (woah, woah)
    I don't think you understand (oh)
    (I don't think, I don't think) no, no, no (I don't think, I don't think)
    I don't think you understand (oh)

    In the night she hears him calling (yeah)
    In the night she's dancing to relieve the pain (to relieve the pain)
    She'll never walk away (no, no, no, I don't think you understand, hey)
    In the night when she comes crawling (hoo)
    Dollar bills and tears keep falling down her face (falling down her face)
    She'll never walk away
