1.  City child never knew no loving.

Day by day, hope slipping away.

‘Got your looks, but how long will you keep them?

Too many nights, too many bad days.


2.  All too soon the sun will find you,

And you’ll see your dreams have slipped away.

You got your life, but how long will you keep it?

When the game stops you know, someone always pays.


It doesn’t have to be like this.

You have the power to decide.

Just be yourself: don’t let others shape your life.

Follow the voice you hear inside.

Follow the voice you hear inside.



3.  (Guitar Solo)


4.  It need be so, your future ain’t written.

And it’s not too late to open your eyes.

Your last chance is knocking at your door.

If you don’t answer that call you may die.


It doesn’t have to be like this.

You have the power to survive.

Just be yourself: don’t let others shape your life.

Follow the voice you hear inside.

Follow the voice you hear inside.


Follow the voice you hear inside.

Follow the voice you hear inside.
