You wanted to be street wise
Went and got involved
Now you're trapped and helpless
Problems you can't solve
One side and the other
There's no shelter
In a crossfire
Had to play with big boys
Grew up much too fast
They ran and left you
Facing things you can't resist
Better keep your head down
Finally had your showdown
You and I
Friends long gone
Lies on lies
On and on and on
You and I
Bridges burn
Lies on lies
Who's gonna rescue you
Tell me who's gonna
Who's gonna wear the bleeding heart
Put it on the line
When you gonna pay attention
Sentence fits the crime
Can't hold out much longer
Shots are coming closer
And it's one side and the other
There's no shelter
In a crossfire
Oh it's one side and the other
There's no shelter
Crossfire, crossfire
Crossfire, crossfire
Crossfire, crossfire
Crossfire, crossfire
1, 2, 3, 4
