lyrics

You stumble a mile, you take a stumble
So many dead end roads you’re on
You’re playing with fire, you cover your mirrors
How many bedrooms have you burned down?

Don’t let yourself fall, just know where you’re going
Keep looking for doctor’s cure
Said she could get killed, said she was abused
Stranded in forgotten years

Sharon, you’ve got to be strong
Baby, I’ll keep you safe & warm
Sharon, don’t let yourself fall
So keep your head up, hold on

The weakness it showed, down suicide road
Doctor, doctor, got no cure
As far as my poor eyes could see, baby brings me to my knees
The habit, the hurt that it feeds
With your head face down in bed, let the dead bury the dead
They put a price on her head

Sharon, you’ve got to be strong
Baby, I’ll keep you safe & warm
Sharon, don’t let yourself fall
So keep your head up, hold on

Sharon, you’ve got to be strong
Baby, I’ll keep you safe & warm
Sharon, don’t let yourself fall
So keep your head up, hold on
Sharon, you’ve got to be strong
Baby, I’ll keep you safe & warm
Sharon, don’t let yourself fall
So keep your head up, hold on…
