Sold Life (Original Version)

from Sold Life - EP by Billie Ray Martin & Hard Ton

lyrics

I was a straight girl
Living in a simple world
I worked nine to five
For a straight and narrow life

And then you worked my nerve
Turned my head and shook my world
Now I work overtime
For a sold life

Sold life
I was sold from the moment I saw you
I was a seven for seven straight on the line
Now I’m a fool for you

Sold life
I was haunted from the moment I saw you
I was never so sad in all my life
Now I’m a slave for you

I was tired and bound
Silence is a deadly song
This is a cruel time
Walking on a narrow line

You know I phantasize
I’m hiding in the neon lights
I’m unidentified
For a sold life

Sold life
I was sold from the moment I saw you
I was a seven for seven straight on the line
Now I’m a fool for you

Sold life
I was haunted from the moment I saw you
I was never so sad in all my life
Now I’m a slave for you
