"Hard Time" as written by and Desmond/de Martini Child....
When you're down
Kissin' the ground
And your friends downtown
Won't even let you sleep on the floor anymore
When you're holdin' up a cup
On a corner in the cold all night
You start to cry and wonder why

You're doin' hard time
You're doin' hard time, hard time
Even your soul ain't got a dime
You're doin' hard time, hard time

Outta luck, can't make a buck
Try to run but you're stuck
In the muck of your shattered life
Like a knife through your heart tears you apart
You got no one to hold but
Your memories through the night
And you can't see the light

You're doin' hard time
You're doin' hard time, hard time
Even your soul ain't got a dime
You're doin' hard time, hard time

When you're found they push you around
You got no one to hold but
Your memories through the night
You can't see the light

You're doin' hard time
You're doin' hard time, hard time
Even your soul ain't got a dime
You're doin' hard time, hard time

When you're found they push you around
You got no one to hold but
Your memories through the night
You can't see the light
