• Bor to Run

    Backstreets

  • One soft infested summer me and Terry became friends
    Trying in vain to breathe the fire we was born in
    Catching rides to the outskirts tying faith between our teeth
    Sleeping in that old abandoned beach house getting wasted in the heat
    And hiding on the backstreets, hiding on the backstreets
    With a love so hard and filled with defeat
    Running for our lives at night on them backstreets
    Slow dancing in the dark on the beach at Stockton's Wing
    Where desperate lovers park we sat with the last of the Duke Street Kings
    Huddled in our cars waiting for the bells that ring
    In the deep heart of the night we let loose of everything
    to go running on the backstreets, running on the backstreets
    We swore we'd live forever on the backstreets we take it together
    Endless juke joints and Valentino drag where dancers scraped the tears up off the street dressed down in rags
    Running into the darkness, some hurt bad some really dying
    At night sometimes it seemed you could hear the whole damn city crying
    Blame it on the lies that killed us
    Blame it on the truth that ran us down
    You can blame it all on me Terry
    It don't matter to me now
    When the breakdown hit at midnight
    There was nothing left to say but I hated him and I hated you when you went away
    Laying here in the dark you're like an angel on my chest
    Just another tramp of hearts crying tears of faithlessness
    Remember all the movies, Terry, we'd go see
    Trying to learn how to walk like heroes we thought we had to be
    And after all this time to find we're just like all the rest
    Stranded in the park and forced to confess
    To hiding on the backstreets, hiding on the backstreets
    We swore forever friends on the backstreets until the end
    Hiding on the backstreets, hiding on the backstreets
