Song Meaning
Verse 1
Never thought it would be so rough
And I wonder if I have enough
To keep from breaking down
No mercy in this town
Verse 2
Every day is just another test
Seems I'm always second best
But you learn along the way
That's the price you have to pay
Verse 3
I try to stay defiant
Be tough and self-reliant
Though I get tired to the bone
Verse 4
Love is just a wish you keep inside
How's it gonna help me to survive
Looks like I'm in this fight alone
Verse 5
And I'm living in desperate times
Being alive's my only crime
Don't care what I have to do
I'll find some way to make it through
Verse 6
Oh, and I'm living in desperate times
And it's too late to change my mind
Till these desperate times are done
Gonna run, watch me run
Verse 7
Innocents get taken in
By the promise of an easy win
They start off so naive
So eager to believe
Verse 8
But the glitter of the city lights
Only covers up a lonely night
Of strangers slamming doors
You're hungry and ignored
Verse 9
I've faced the competition
I've made the hard decisions
Will it be worth it in the end?
Verse 10
Taking any chance that comes along
Getting hard to tell what's right or wrong
I only wish I had a friend
Verse 11
And I'm livin' in desperate times
Being alive's my only crime
Don't care what I have to do
I'll find some way to make it through
Verse 12
Oh, and I'm livin' in desperate times
And it's too late to change my mind
Till these desperate times are done
Gonna run, watch me run
Verse 13
And I'm livin' in desperate times
Being alive's my only crime
Don't care what I have to do
I'll find some way to make it through
Verse 14
And I'm livin' in desperate times
Being alive's my only crime
Don't care what I have to do
I'll find some way to make it through
Verse 15
Oh, and I'm livin' in desperate times
And it's too late to change my mind
Till these desperate times are done
Gonna run, watch me run
