A dark alley is your home.
Newspapers are your cover.
Do you remember where you came from?
Are you looking for your lover?

Longing to find your next drug fix.
Shivering and shaking from illness.
Do you remember making juice from a mix?
Don't you ever feel hopeless?

Your only job, prostitution.
Your child sits at home.
What about prosecution?
Will he be all alone?

You get paid a few dollars
and forget your baby's needs.
Your husband starts to holler
And beats you till you bleed.

When will you ever stop this?
Your causing so much pain.
Soon it will be your life you miss,
Your hopeless what is there to gain?
