  • I'll never forget those aimless years
    Street sounds swirling through my mind
    Trouble was often in the air
    So we fought to forget our despair

    I'm a street player
    And I'll play you a song
    'Cause you know, my heart & soul
    Will carry, carry on
    Carry on
    Carry on
    Carry on

    City life's the only way
    Street corners and billiard halls was our home away
    Lessons learned still help me today

    I'm a street player
    I've seen it all
    Hit men, thieves and many a brawl
    But as you see I still stand tall

    It was such a small space in time
    I never knew that I would find
    A musical path for all to see
    Anxiety into ecstasy

    I'm a street player
    I'm a street player
    I'm a street player
    I'm a street player

    I'm a street player
    I've seen it all
    Hit men, thieves and many a brawl
    But as you see I still stand tall

    It was such a small space in time
    I never knew that I would find
    A musical path for all to see
    Anxiety into ecstasy

    I'm a street player
    I'm a street player
    I'm a street player
    I'm a street player Writer/s: DANNY SERAPHINE, DAVID WOLINSKI
