BACKSTREET

 

A music video Ken Finton made in 1998 that it still as appropriate today as it was then.

 

Sweet Carolina Lee was a lonely girl

Who could not wait to play in a grown-up world.

Then one day she ran away

from her Daddy’s mansion.

She couldn’t wait to get away

Looking for some action.

There is a back street in every city.

(What’s going down there sure ain’t pretty.)

With every stranger, there is a danger.

(Take your money and leave you lying there.)

You meet the user, you find the losers.

(People hurt by their past abusers.)

And as you wonder, it sweeps you under.

(Hell lies in wait for all who blunder there.)

Some say that all things come to those who wait.

Some the early bird is the one who ate.

Back-street folk, they have no views:

They grab whatever passes.

Carolina has no chance.

They found her broken glasses.

Sweet Carolina, don’t you hear it callin’!

Sweet Carolina, don’t you hear it callin’!

There is a back street in every city.

(What’s going down there sure ain’t pretty.)

With every stranger, there is a danger.

(Take your money and leave you lying there.)

You meet the user, you find the losers.

(People hurt by their past abusers.)

And as you wonder, it sweeps you under.

(Hell lies in wait for all who blunder there.)
