Lyrics

[Verse 1] Cold, cold eyes upon me they stare People all around me and they're all in fear They don't seem to want me but they won't admit I must be some kind of creature up here having fits [Verse 2] From my party house, I'm afraid to come outside Although I'm filled with love I'm afraid they'll hurt my pride So I play the part I feel they want of me And I pull the shades so I won't see them seein' me [Chorus] Havin' hard times in this crazy town Havin' hard times, there's no love to be found Havin' hard times, in this crazy town Havin' hard times, there's no love to be found [Verse 3] From my party house I feel like meetin' others Familiar faces, creed and race, a brother But to my surprise I find a man corrupt Although he be my brother, he wants to hold me up [Chorus] Havin' hard times in this crazy town Havin' hard times, there's no love to be found Havin' hard times, in this crazy town Havin' hard times, there's no love to be found [Breakdown] So many hard times... Sleepin' on motel floors Knockin' on my brother's door Eatin' Spam and Oreos and drinkin' Thunderbird baby [Chorus] In this crazy town Havin' hard times, there's no love to be found Havin' hard times, in this crazy town Havin' hard times, there's no love to be found [Instrumental] [Outro] I'm sick and tired I'm sick and tired of payin' dues baby And I'm sick and tired of havin' so many hard, hard times baby And from my party house, from my party house
