Girl you taught me how to hurt real bad and cry myself to sleep
You showed me how this town can shatter dreams

There ain't no glamour in this tinseled land of lost and wasted lives
And painful scars are all that's left of me
But thank you girl for teaching me brand new ways to be cruel
And if I can find my mind now, I guess I'll just leave


It's the only thing that keeps me hanging on
It's the only thing that keeps me hanging on
