lyrics

On the corner of Hope and Forsaken Streets
There's a house where a little girl lives
She's been waiting alone for her dad to come home
And make good on the promise he gives

But he's busy downtown on Besotted Street
In a tavern he visits each day
He's been drowning his sins in tequila and gin
While the whole world just washes away

And he feels alone
And he doesn't know
Why he can't control his own life any more
So he runs away
And he comes to stay
Where he feels at home
in the town at the end of the world

His mind is lost on Anguish Avenue
As he summons his strength not to cry
While his girl is alone when he doesn't come home
And she still doesn't understand why

That he feels alone
And he doesn't know
Why he can't control his own life any more
So he runs away
And he comes to stay
Where he feels at home
in the town at the end of the world

He thinks the best of his life has gone by
But all the things worth living for
Are in front of his eyes

And over the hill on Nostalgia Way
There's a woman that he used to love
She is wondering how he is doing right now
And if she's someone he's thinking of

And she feels alone
And she doesn't know
Why she can't control her own life any more
So she runs away
And she comes to stay
Where she feels at home
in the town at the end of the world
