He's got nothing to say, he's got no excuse 
He's just made that way, and he's gonna stay that way
Like a dog on the loose in a firework display in a world of his own
No, no, no, he won't back down or go running back home

He's come a long way in life
He's got a long way to go
He don't even know, he don't care because 
He's growing up the hard way
In and out of trouble every day
 Growing up the hard way
Now no tellin' where you'll end up, boy

And he's got nothing to say, like he's lost for the worlds, his mind is in a daze
That's his way, it's just a little game he plays 
He's got nowhere to run while the city sleeps he wanders alone
Cuttin' through the steel and the hearts of stone 

He's come a long way in life
He's got a long way to go
He don't even know, but he don't care because 
He's growing up the hard way
In and out of trouble every day
 Growing up the hard way
You'd better walk the straight and narrow 

 Growing up the hard way
In and out of trouble every day
 Growing up the hard way
 Never know what you're in for, boy

He's come a long way in life
He's got a long way to go
He don't wanna know, and he don't care because 
He's growing up the hard way
In and out of trouble every day
He's growing up the hard way
Yeah, and he's gonna stay that way
You see, he's growing up the hard way
Walk the straight and narrow yeah, maybe someday
But still he's growing up the hard way
It's just the way he's grown up
Yeah, growing up the hard way
 There ain't no other way
 Growing up the hard way
