Jonny Lang

Jonny Lang - Thankful

Well there’s no one that can stop her

She’s going until the house lights come up

Or her stomach spills onto the floor

This night is gonna end

When we’re damn well ready for it to be over

Worked all week long now the music is playing on our time

We do what we do to get by

And then we need a release

You get mixed up with the wrong guys

You get messed up on the wrong drugs

Sometimes the party takes you places that you didn’t really plan on going

When people see the track marks on her arms

She knows what they’re thinking

She keeps on working for that minimum

As if a high school education gave you any other options, you know.

They don’t know nothing about redemption

They don’t know nothing about recovery

Some people just aren't the type for marriage and family

No mother ever dreams that her daughters going to grow up to be a junkie

No mother ever dreams that her daughters going to grow up to sleep alone

No mother ever dreams that her daughters going to grow up to be a junkie

No mother ever dreams that her daughters going to grow up to sleep alone

She’s out of step with the style

She don’t know where the actions happening

You know the downtown club scene ain't nothing like it used to be

You reach a point where there’s not a lie in the world

That you could use to make the boys believe you're still in you twenties

But they keep getting younger, don't they baby?

She’s not waiting for someone to come over and ask for the privilege

She can still hear that Rebel Yell just as loud as it was in 1983, you know

There ain't no Johnny coming home to share a bed with her

And she doesn’t care

No mother ever dreams that her daughters going to grow up to be a junkie

No mother ever dreams that her daughters going to grow up to sleep alone

No mother ever dreams that her daughters going to grow up to be a junkie

No mother ever dreams that her daughters going to grow up to sleep alone

No mother ever dreams that her daughters going to grow up to be a junkie

And if she had to live it all over again you know she wouldn’t change anything for the world
