  • Put your shoes on, put your makeup on
    Wear a smile, you put your fake it on
    And every night I hear you venting high
    You're hanging it out on the dirty laundry line

    No one says you've got it easy now
    But your defense, it seems to please you somehow
    And every night I hear you venting high
    You're hanging it out on the dirty laundry line

    And it seems to me you don't care
    You just hang it there, hang it on the dirty laundry line
    You don't mind, everyone can see
    Everybody sees your pain, ain't no shame
    It's just flying there, flying like a kite in the rain

    I believe we make our own road
    With a little help, we can carry this load
    But so many things are out of your control
    And it's breaking my heart, but I want you to know

    That I really want to be there
    At the same time, I'm tangled in your dirty laundry line
    You don't care, you just hang it there
    Everybody sees your pain, ain't no shame
    It's just flying there, flying like a kite in the rain

    I know I'm your shoulder (girl I am your shoulder)
    You're leaning too hard now (girl is falling over)
    I know I'm your shelter (pack it up babe,
    find another way, save it till the drama is over)

    And it seems to me you don't care…
    You just hang it there, hang it on the dirty laundry line
    You don't mind, everyone can see
    Everybody sees your pain, ain't no shame
    It's just flying there, flying like a kite in the rain
    My, oh my, does it make you cry?
    To see it on the dirty laundry line
