Said the wait child, magic child, work it on out now work it
The wait child, pinball child, pool hall child hurts
The wait child, pacing child, forth and back now hurts
The wait child, neon light, late night lights hurt
Oh gonna' hurt some child, child
Gonna' hurt some, whoa my baby
Said the wait child, bruised ball child, pride slapped child hurts
The wait child, crest-felled child, tear eyed child hurts
The wait child, bus-stop child, late come child hurts
The wait child, platform walk, idle talk hurts
Oh gonna' hurt some child, child
Gonna' hurt some, whoa my baby
I said child child staring into the street light
Messed up child, lonley boy tonight
Kick the wall, turn the street and back again
Oh boy you've been forgotten (repeat)
Said the wait child, pacing child, forth and back now hurts
The wait child, bus-stop child, late come child hurts
The wait child, pool-hall child, pin-table now hurts
The wait child, magic child, work it on out now work it
Oh gonna' hurt some child, child, child, child, child
Gonna' hurt some, whoa my baby
