Elán – Street Child lyrics

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

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
