Kids in the Street

Album: Kids In The Street (2012)
  • In the night, in the beat city light
    We steal ourselves away and hold on tight
    You were there, yeah, we were all there
    Too young, too smart, too much for this one town
    We'd get so high, we got lost coming down

    When we were kids in the street, kids in the street
    When we were kids in the street, just kids in the street
    Remember when we

    We used to laugh, we used to cry
    Live and die by the forty five
    Take me back, I'll go there
    Who could stop us, and who would care?
    Always keep, to the kids in the street

    We were dreams, we were American graffiti scenes
    But no war, no peace, no hopes, no dreams, just us
    And the songs, with the words we'd sing wrong
    And we'd drive until that jealous sun fell down
    Just to wash ourselves in the moonlight summer sounds

    When we were kids in the street, kids in the street
    When we were kids in the street, just kids in the street
    Remember when we

    We used to laugh, we used to cry
    Live and die by the forty five
    Take me back, I'll go there
    Who could stop us, and who would care?
    Always keep, to the kids in the street

    (huh, huh, huh) and we never felt, so alive (so alive)
    (Huh, huh, huh) and we'd dance, all, night, under the sky (under the sky)
    (Whoa, whoa, whoa) and we'd live (we'd live), we'd breathe (we'd breathe), we'd die (we'd die)
    (Whoa, whoa, whoa) when the world, stood, still, for you and I
    Just (you and I)

    Candles burn, 'cause the world will always turn
    I'll burn both ends until my fire's out
    Lost in the darkness, I can still scream out (ah)

    We used to laugh, we used to cry
    Say goodbye to I 35
    Take me back, down a dirty road
    Where it went, we didn't care to know
    A glory night is a story saved
    Mark the chapter, but turn the page
    Always keep, to kids in the street
    When we were kids in the street
    Just kids in the street

    (Whoa)
