I spent most of my life outside, in the driving rain
I was only trying to get by with some of life's amenities
Well, nothing's free, I got more than I bargained for
Now it's plain to see, I can't depend on love to defend me

It took most of my time to do what never was done
I was on the outside of an inside kind of love that now is gone
Come right or wrong, it was laid to rest that way
I hate to be unkind, pretending is for strangers who don't know you

I spent most of my life outside in the driving rain
I was in some one-horse town just waiting for a plane
To take me back now where's that at, I paid the price
Well, ain't that nice, knowing I'm so free?
I can't depend on love to defend me

I got more than I bargained for
Now it's plain to see, I can't depend on love to defend me
