This song was inspired and based on a true story of a girl I knew when I was a teenager. Her name was Lisa and she never did come back home. I do hope she turned her life around for the better, and is listening to this song today. (New 2019 version)

Story behind the song
A new 2019 recording of a previously released track. This song was inspired and based on a true story of a girl I knew when I was a teenager. Her name was Lisa, and she never did come back home. I do hope she turned her life around for the better, and is listening to this song today. : ) JD
Lyrics
Standing On A Corner words and music by Jayson Dyall c.1990 Little child, hungry and cold On the streets and all alone Nowhere to go, sleeps in empty buildings Only fifteen, she ran away from home And she's all alone, Yes she's all alone Big city life, glamorous dreams All shot down in one single day Now all she has is her body to sell She can't get home, so she has to stay And she's all alone, Yes she's all alone And she's Standing On A Corner in the dead of night What a price to pay just to stay alive Standing On A Corner in the dark city's night Selling herself in order to survive And she's all alone, Yes she's all alone The girl is all alone She's just a baby, she's just a baby Short Break She don't use drugs but wonders "why not?" To ease the pains of the night ahead Some nights it ends with bruises and tears And on some nights, she wish she were dead And she's all alone, Yes she's all alone And she's Standing On A Corner in the dead of night What a price to pay just to stay alive Standing On A Corner in the dark city's night Selling herself in order to survive And she's all alone, Yes she's all alone The girl is all alone She's just a baby, she's just a baby Sometimes she thinks of her childhood years Biting her lips, fights back the tears So afraid to get on the phone "Mom and Dad, I want to come back home" Little child, hungry and cold On the streets and on her own Nowhere to go, sleeps in empty buildings Only fifteen, she ran away from home And she's Standing On A Corner in the dead of night What a price to pay just to stay alive Standing On A Corner in the dark city's night Selling herself in order to survive Yes she's Standing On A Corner in the dead of night What a price to pay just to stay alive Standing On A Corner in the dark city's night Selling herself in order to survive And she's all alone, Yes she's all alone The girl is all alone She's just a baby, she's just a baby.....
