Lyrics

I know what she goes home to
I can tell by how hard she tries
And it’s hard, what she goes home to
But not enough to make it easier to lie

She don’t have an ally for miles
When a stranger calls her name she still smiles

She was born an actress long ago
And though she never did much with it
She still puts on a show

She needs a lucky break
Just a lucky break
Something to hold on to
She needs a lucky break
Just a lucky break
Something to go home to

I can see her beauty start to fade
Like roses that get stepped on in the rain
I know she’s burning to escape it
If only she would do the things she says

She’s never seen the ocean with a clear mind
She’d talk for hours ‘bout everything gone wrong
Her family don’t know ‘bout forgiveness
They just cycle through the pain and pass it on

She needs a lucky break
Just a lucky break
Something to hold on to
She needs a lucky break
Just a lucky break
Something to go home to

She falls in love
Strung out on the others like her
She can’t give up
Addiction to the pain

No matter how love will surround her
You can be sure she will always go back again

She needs a lucky break
Just a lucky break
Something to hold on to
She needs a lucky break
Just a lucky break
Something to go home to

I know what she goes home to
I can tell by how hard she tries
It’s hard, what she goes home to
Hot enough to make it easier to lie
