She had a drive-by childhood
A plastic Jesus on her chest
A mean mean girl
With a certain snake allure
A heart like 16 midnights
And a surgical voice
Keepin' strange for some change

Empty eyes with a haunted look
Leanin' hard, she lost her place
Try as she might
She couldn't take my advice
It's a desperate conclusion
People with a grudge
And a mind you can not budge

Ain't no bed of roses
Tryin' to turn your life around
Ain't no bed of roses
Time won't move no mountain
Just the faith in the leap, my friend

A cliff dwellin' creeper
And a runaway
On the ol' cat slide of town
See how you run, oh see how you pay
Another honest mistake
If dreams are all you need
Then alone is where you'll be

I'm the leader of the middle
And I see that streak in you
Was it somethin' you were born with
Or did it just seep on through?
It's a nightmare on a budget
Just enough to keep you off track
Always somethin' for nothin'
On the road, to hell and back

Ain't no bed of roses
Tryin' to turn your life around
Ain't no bed of roses
(time) won't move no mountain
Just the faith in the leap, my friend
I'm the leader of the middle
And I see that streak in you
Was it somethin' you were born with
Or did it just seep on through?
It's a nightmare on a budget
Just enough to keep you off track
Always somethin' for nothin'
On the road, to hell and back

Ain't no bed of roses
Tryin' to turn your life around
Ain't no bed of roses
(time) won't move no mountain
Just the faith in the leap, my friend
Ain't no bed of roses
Tryin' to turn your life around
Ain't no bed of roses
(time) won't move no mountain
Just the faith in the leap, my friend
