Lyrics

Livin’ without power again
Things are taking a turn for the worse
How can so many things be right
When my life is falling apart?

Car’s about to die
Clothes are all dirty
No heat and no AC

Got no phone
So I can’t call
Seems too much to face it all

But I tell myself it’s not so bad
Don’t wanna shoulda, coulda, woulda,
What I wouldn’t have
Putting out much more
Than you know I’m getting

It’s not easy – it’s oh so hard
Dreamin and pushin livin’ in the dark
This aint the darkest place I’ve ever been in
Lower Level Ghetto Livin’

The front yard is mud
Couldn’t walk it if I wanted to
Learnin what it feels like
To pull myself out of the ghetto

Bill collector’s at the door
Gave him everything but he wants more
Taping over holes in the floor
You know I don’t mind, though…

I tell myself it’s not so bad
Don’t wanna shoulda, coulda, woulda,
What I wouldn’t have
Putting out much more
Than you know I’m getting

It’s not easy – it’s oh so hard
Dreamin’ and pushin’ livin’ in the dark
This ain’t the darkest place I’ve ever been in
Lower Level Ghetto Livin’

I tell myself it’s not so bad
Don’t wanna shoulda, coulda, woulda,
What I wouldn’t have
Putting out much more
Than you know I’m getting

It’s not easy – it’s oh so hard
Dreamin’ and pushin’ livin’ in the dark
This ain’t the darkest place I’ve ever been in

I tell myself it’s not so bad
Don’t wanna shoulda, coulda, woulda,
What I wouldn’t have
Putting out much more
Than you know I’m getting

It’s not easy – it’s oh so hard
Dreamin’ and pushin’ livin’ in the dark
This ain’t the darkest place I’ve ever been in
Lower Level Ghetto Livin’
