lyrics

Jackie (L.Sinclair)

jackie was a tough kid
she’d light up when the moon did
shining like a streetlight
down on the corner near where I lived

we got caught stealing cigarettes
jackie’s Mumma slapped her in the teeth
she said ‘you aint gonna see him no more
you’re just a kid he’s just a thief

when Jackie smiled there was blood on her lip
i just waited for someone to speak
she slid a cigarette into my sleeve
and said I’ll see you next week

jackie was a tough kid
we were so young
nobody loved her like I did
but you can’t catch the sun

there were times she would disappear
i wouldn’t see her on the school bus
then she’d turn up somewhere out of the dark
just like the sunrise does

she was pretty in the best way
she used to smell like pine wood
she had a heart that was set like stone
no one could hurt her like her Mumma could

jackie was a tough kid
we were so young
nobody loved her like I did
no body no one
