lifeblood: songs: lyrics: refugee


we got somethin we both know it
we don't talk too much about it
yeah it ain't no real big secret
all the same somehow we get around it
listen it don't really matter to me baby
you believe what you want to believe
i said you don't have to live like a refugee
(don't have to live like a refugee)

somewhere somehow
somebody must have kicked you around some
tell me why you would lay there
and revel in your abandon
ah baby it don't make no difference to me baby
everybody's had to fight to be free
i said you don't have to live like a refugee
(don't have to live like a refugee)
oh baby you don't have to live like a refugee
(don't have to live like a refugee)

now baby we ain't the first
i'm sure a lot of other lovers been burned
i know this seems real to you
but it's one of those things you gotta feel to be true

somewhere somehow
somebody must have kicked you around some
who knows maybe you were kidnapped
tied up taken away and held for ransom
yeah baby it don't make no difference to me baby
everybody's had to fight to be free
you see you don't have to live like a refugee
(don't have to live like a refugee)
oh baby you don't have to live like a refugee
(don't have to live like a refugee)
no baby you don't have to live like a refugee
(don't have to live like a refugee)
no no no no
