I need city lights  Defense and weaponry 
No way of knowing

And that's the difference  Between you and me
I'm a war child 

My occupation

I stop at the corner 
To be identified 

 Across the border 
They pretend victory
I'm playing in the rubble 
And dream a destiny 

I'm a war child

We hear of "the troubles" on the nightly news
 PLO lovers courting after the curfew 
Your father and brother have the West Bank blues 

You weren't discovered by Khmer Rouge
We hear of "the troubles" on the nightly news
 PLO lovers courting after the curfew 
Your father and brother have the West Bank blues 

I'm a war child 
I'm a war baby
I'm a war child 
I'm a war baby
I'm a war child
