Lyrics

        hey ruth
        i don't mean to listen in, but these walls are paper thin, you know
        hey ruth
        i heard the fighting last night, he doesn't treat you right at all

        so maybe you don't even know my name
        just open your eyes and i know you would feel the same way


        hey ruth
        the truth isn't always clear, it's hard to see when you're so near
        hey ruth
        he wants to suck you dry, you're out of luck, too blind to see

        the way that he treats you is a crime
        don't let him hold you back this time, no no no


        i know that you probably can't read my mind
        but why is it so hard to leave him behind now

        hey ruth
        we all want to leave this highrise, move onto bluer skies, i know
        so turn off that tv set
        and get on your feet again, remember the times when you were free
