Lyrics

Sioux Falls Soldier
Words and Music by Adam Dorfman
Copyright 1998 Adam Dorfman



My thoughts are not quite clear today
I sold my body yesterday
I’ve got all these goddamn bills to pay
Before the month’s complete

I wish I could have made him see
That there’s a whole lot more to me
Than this high-heeled nude simplicity
There’s nothing left to do

I want to be
Someone to make me proud to be
A woman and a soldier
In this war that is my life

The TV is on
Gives me the images I’m feeding on
Don’t know what it is that I’ve become
Won’t someone come and save me from my life

I left Sioux Falls two months ago
Daddy’d die, don’t let him know
I’ve let myself sink down this low
I’ve got everything to gain

The tourniquet clamps down the vein
The needle’s in, erase the pain
It sweeps my body like the rain
With one more hammer’s pull

I want to be
Someone to make me proud to be
A woman and a soldier
In this war that is my life






The TV is on
Gives me the images I’m feeding on
Don’t know what it is that I’ve become
Won’t someone come and save me from my life

Jimmy swore he’d never leave me
I should have known, I’ve heard that line before
But I followed him down from the Black Hills to this Southwest desert hell
I’m not worth anything anymore

Guess that I have changed my ways
300 Johns, it really pays
It’s been sixty blacked-out days
Since I last talked to you

My daddy’s child days are through
Guess this body’s all I got to use
The marks down on my arm are blue
Make me forget my name

But now I see
I got a whole new world inside of me
This opium has set me free
To live the life I choose

The TV is gone
Don’t care where my next hit’s coming from
God won’t you deliver some
Don’t need no one to save me from my life.
