Nobody's Child
by Lita Ford



She was born on a dead end street
Half a mile from the freeway sign
Growing up in a house that was never a home, all alone
She never had too much to say
It didn't matter anyway
Ain't no one to hear you
When you're on your own, oh no
And the road gets longer as the night goes on.

Now you're running yet you're crying
Falling faster than you fly
And the demons just beside you
Come swift and wild when you're nobody's child
There's a heartache like the devil at your side
And the danger is the dark and lonely night
When you're nobody's child.

He was raised as an army brat
He never stayed in one place too long
Moving town to town he never knew a soul
Had nothing to show but Mama left when he was a boy
His dad said better act your age
One night he just walked away alone
Now he's long gone
And the road gets longer as life goes on.

Now you're running yet you're crying
Falling faster than you fly
And the demons just beside you
Come swift and wild when you're nobody's child
There's a heartache like the devil at your side
And the danger is the dark and lonely night
When you're nobody's child.

Some people get lucky
And that's the way it goes
And some people never find their way back home.

Now you're running yet you're crying
Falling faster than you fly
And the demons just beside you
Come swift and wild when you're nobody's child
There's a heartache like the devil at your side
And the danger is the dark and lonely night
When you're nobody's child
