my lyricsbox
Outside the window the neon flashes
In the morning light
Down on the sidewalk there's a woman with a problem
But she don't know how to fight

She's destitute and broken down
She softly whispers is there no one around
And no one hears the sound
Her knees give way and hit the ground

This is the toughest street in town
This is the toughest street in town
This is the toughest street in town
This is the toughest

Like a rat in a pack it attacks
From the back
Through a crack in a track
And you take a smack

This Jack has had a hard day
No one told him it would be like this
He's had to score the hard way
Working on twenty hour shifts

This is the toughest street in town
This is the toughest
It's tough stuff
This is the toughest street around
This is the toughest
Don't you do down
No how

It's just another black spot
Where far too many people have died
It's just another grave yard
And there's not too many people left alive

This is the toughest
Are you tough enough
This is the toughest
Are you rough enough
This is the toughest
Can you bluff enough

Just a minor misery did me no harm
But it's there to warn, outside the window
The neon is still flashing in the morning light
Down on the sidewalk that woman was blown away
Out of sight

All across the city no one gives a damn
All across the city no one seems to understand
This is the toughest
This is the toughest street in town
This is the toughest street around
This is the toughest
Are you rough enough
This is the toughest
If I were you I wouldn't come around here
This is the toughest
This is the toughest
Are you tough enough
This song is from the album "Black Rose".
