Legend in My Living Room (Lennox Annie)

When I was just seventeen I ran away from home To be with all the pretty people To be on my own Bright lights and trains and bedsit stains And pavements paved with gold And I believed in everything that everybody told me Have mercy Have mercy upon me I found myself in a lonely place with a suitcase full of dreams And I soon grew up to realise what living in the doghouse means But everyday I told myself good things would happen soon 'cause I knew that I was going to be a legend in my living room Have mercy Have mercy upon me (welcome to this perfect world) Now everyday on a dead end street is where I spend my time The dust has been collecting on the corners of my mind But I've she'd my tears in bitter drops until the thorn trees bloomed To take the spiky fruit to crown myself the queen of doom Have mercy Have mercy upon me
