lyrics

I ran for dealer Dan
I knew he was your man
Late at night we’d rendezvous
I learned a thing or two
One night he went too far
I saw him hit you inside his car
I knew the day would come
Me, him, and a loaded gun

I’m tired of the way
He puts you on display
And then he cuts you down
If he only knew
The time I spent with you
While he was out of town

You gotta be strong
Whatever happens now
Don’t care if we’re wrong
It’s gonna get better, but
Amy, I won’t be around

One day I saw you bruised
Down on the avenue
We’d leave this life of crime
We said we’d bide our time
But careless is the yearning heart
All our plans I’d disregard
What was I supposed to do
Look the other way
When he raised a hand to you?

I’m tired of the way
I see him everyday
And I just can’t let on
What we have in store
Is a little more
Than he’s counting on

You gotta be strong
Whatever happens now
Don’t care if we’re wrong
I know we made plans but
Amy, I won’t be around

In the alleyway
Shots rang out and soon
We had a firefight
One of us was dead
But it wasn’t you, it wasn’t me
That died that night

You gotta be strong
Whatever happens now
Don’t care if we’re wrong
They took me away so
Amy, I won’t be around
