Lyrics

Never thought it would be so rough And I wonder if I have enough To keep from breaking down No mercy in this town Every day is just another test Seems I'm always second best But you learn along the way That's the price you have to pay I try to stay defiant Be tough and self-reliant Though I get tired to the bone Love is just a wish I keep inside How's it gonna help me to survive? Looks like I'm in this fight alone And I'm livin' in desperate times Being alive's my only crime Don't care what I have to do I'll find some way to make it through Oh, and I'm livin' in desperate times And it's too late to change my mind 'Til these desperate times are done Gonna run, watch me run Innocents get taken in By the promise of an easy win They start off so na´ve So eager to believe But the glitter of the city lights Only covers up a lonely night Of strangers slamming doors You're hungry and ignored I've faced the competition I've made the hard decisions Will it be worth it in the end? Taking any chance that comes along Getting hard to tell What's right or wrong I only wish I had a friend

And I'm livin' in desperate times Being alive's my only crime Don't care what I have to do I'll find some way to make it through Oh, and I'm livin' in desperate times And it's too late to change my mind 'Til these desperate times are done Gonna run, watch me run La, la, la, la, la And I'm livin' in desperate times Being alive's my only crime Don't care what I have to do I'll find some way to make it through And I'm livin' in desperate times Being alive's my only crime Don't care what I have to do I'll find some way to make it through Oh, and I'm livin' in desperate times And it's too late to change my mind 'Til these desperate times are done Gonna run, Watch me run
