  • Walking slow down the freeway
    Sarah says that it's not much further
    Kiss the sunlight on her face
    Let's say goodbye to this old and broken town

    Where we fell in love
    Dead end streets became a drug
    Held our voices like a prison cell
    But now we shout it from the rooftops

    Oh, we are the kids that you never loved
    We are the ones that will never grow up
    We're just some kids from the West End, oh oh oh
    We are the voices you never heard
    We are the fire you never let burn
    We're just some kids from the West End, oh oh oh

    Say goodbye to your old friends
    Kicking down all the rusty fences
    Don't need much where we're going
    Just a little bit of love to get us by
    Goodbye, we're on our way
    You and I, we got it made
    Throw your gold into a wishing well
    And we'll be shouting from the rooftops

    Oh, we are the kids that you never loved
    We are the ones that will never grow up
    We're just some kids from the West End, oh oh oh
    We are the voices you never heard
    We are the fire you never let burn
    We're just some kids from the West End, oh oh oh

    We are the kids, we are the kids, oh
    We are the kids, we are the kids, oh
    We are the kids, we are the kids, oh
    And we'll be shouting from the rooftops, oh

    We are the kids that you never loved
    We are the ones that will never grow up
    We're just some kids from the West End, oh oh oh
    We are the voices you never heard
    We are the fire you never let burn
    We're just some kids from the West End, oh oh oh

    We are the kids, we are the kids, oh
    We are the kids, we are the kids, oh
    We are the kids, we are the kids, oh
    And we'll be shouting from the rooftops

    We are the voices you never heard
    We are the fire you never let burn
    We're just some kids from the West End, oh oh oh Writer/s: ANDREW HOLLANDER, ANDY LOVE, DANA PARISH, DAVID BOYD, LAURENT JACCOUX, LOUIS VECCHIO, PETER WALLEVIK, SOREN HANSEN
