[Living In] Desperate Times - Lyrics

Never thought it would be so rough
And I wonder if I have enough
To keep from breaking down
No mercy in this town
Everyday is just another test
Seems I'm always second best
But you learn along the way
Its the price you have to pay

You try to say goodbye
You talk to yourself and lying
You might get tired to the bone
Love is just a wish you keep inside
How can I help you to survive?
Looks like I'm in this fight alone

And I'm living in desperate times
Being alive's my only crime
Don't cure what I have to do
I find some way to make it through
Oh and I'm living in desperate times
I guess you'll make me change my mind
In these desperate times of love
Rather run, watch me run

Innocents get taken in
By the promise of an easy win
And God I'm so naïve
So eager to believe
Hope the glitter of the city lights
Only covers up a lonely night
Of strangers slamming doors
Get hungry and ignore

I face the competition
I've made a hard decision
Will it be worth it in the end?
Taking any chance because I'm hot
Everybody tells us right or wrong
I only wish I had a friend

And I'm living in desperate times
Being alive's my only crime
Don't cure what I have to do
I find some way to make it through
Oh and I'm living in desperate times
I guess you'll make me change your mind
In these desperate times of love
Rather run, watch me run.
