Street Child
by Elan

Album: Street Child (2003)
  • We are the little ones who roam the underbelly
    Of the streets that normal people walk
    Wrong side of the tracks, the deep end of the ocean
    The color of the gypsies in the shadow night

    Darkness inside out seeps into your veins
    Listen to the rain
    The only thing keeping you alive
    Is the gracious night

    [Chorus:]
    Let me go, let me sleep until forever
    Let me close my eyes and hide until the never
    Let me go, let me slip into the sky
    And tiptoe into madness in a hollow cry

    'Cause no one ever told me I committed any crime
    And no one ever told me how I went blind

    And all I ever wanted was a free mind
    A guiltless conscience and a place where I could fly

    I threw my cards out on the table
    And I put my neck out on the line
    I took the verdict I was handed
    And now I've served my time

    [Chorus x2]

    Let me go
