Lovin' On Back Streets

In the style of

Mel Street

Lyrics

we try to pick
the most
unlikely places
where no one's apt
to know us
by our name

and for a while
we share
the sweet affection
that makes it worth
the sorrow
and the shame

of lovin' on
backstreets
and livin' on main
sufferin' hell
through the daylight
for the heaven
darkness brings

two hearts
in the shadows
tradin' passion
for pain
of lovin' on
backstreets
and livin' on main

in the mornin'
when i face
the one who owns me
and she confronts me
with some things
i can't explain

then once again
i'll hate myself
for living
and wonder
just how long
my mind
can stand the strain

of lovin' on
backstreets
and livin' on main
sufferin' hell
through the daylight
for the heaven
darkness brings

two hearts
in the shadows
tradin' passion
for pain

of lovin' on
backstreets
and livin' on main
lovin' on backstreets
and livin' on main
