Happy Homes

Christ, it’s another
She passed through the world
Then she died in a gutter
By the Hillsborough River
With the sun on her back
Near the car that killed her
 
I've been thinking about her
Right now I’m still thinking about her
Does her mother know her daughter’s gone?
Is she down on her knees, now, crying?
 
Alright baby, rest your head now
We all end up on the side of the road
And it’s alright baby, rest your head now
We all end up on the side of the road
 
Was she born to a happy home?
Two dogs, an account for college
She left home when she was just 16
Roamed the streets 'til the day I saw her
 
I've been thinking about her
Right now I'm still thinking about her
I can see her lonely face
God, I hope there's a heaven
 
Alright baby, rest your head now
We all end up on the side of the road
And it’s alright baby, rest your head now
We all end up on the side of the road
 
However I meet you, darling
Well, I hope that it's sooner than later
Sooner than later
(x2)
 
Is it safer in the darkness?
