Kingsley Flood - Hard Times for the Quiet Kind Lyrics

  • I was born a spark plug girl, cut from heart and iron
  • Papa’s hands were small and strong, Mama’s soft smile wide
  • But I know all the good girls move so slow
  • I’ve been soaking up the TV glow
  • I’ve been feeding mirrors, bleeding on tip-toes
  • Chorus:
  • It’s hard times for the quiet kind
  • They tame their tongues and wait in line
  • While the Cadillac kids pay no mind
  • I don’t want to be the one they leave behind
  • I cut my teeth neath dead heroes, who live on on my wall
  • Their voices blown, their elbows thrown, but that’s not what I recall
  • All around, there were preachers with furrowed brows
  • Poor pundits paid to stretch their mouths
  • But the widest eyes are blind when looking around
  • Chorus
  • Last night I dreamt I was ten feet tall, and I punched right through the roof
  • Right past Papa’s sullen stare, sighing “that’s not what we do”
  • But I wanna hush that quiet and I
  • And I wanna shout it out loud and I
  • wanna climb these walls before they climb all over me
  • Chorus
