And I said no to all the men I've come across
through the years I've been living strong and today
I'm not afraid of love a different shade
so much the light would never hope to travel through
And I said no but all the things around my feet
point the other way and I'm afraid I could be wrong.
Put up walls round where you stay
Different heights for different days
In this town I'm trying to live the otherside is
And I said no but in my heart I've always been
a little in between the old-time straight-line family ways.
Not long ago I do recall the uphill battle to the day.
When they said go and in their faces I could see and all I thought
of was suicide I'm nothing of a man.
Read the walls round where you stay. Different shapes
for different ways. In this town I'm trying to live
the otherside is safer still.
Salt waterfalls and I've got scars to show I've been crying all the time
