All that I know in my life, I have learned on the street 
No magic carpet, no genie, no shoes on my feet

Will I wake up from this nightmare?
A fear that chills me to the bone
 Though I may be one of many
I feel so all alone 

We are the children of the night 
We won't go down without a fight 
Our voice is strong, our future's bright 
And thanks to what we learned from you
We've grown into the children of the night 

Left by my father with only this scar on my face
Told by my mother that, "No, you were just a mistake."
I have tasted my own hunger 
Sold my body to survive 
Some have paid to scratch the surface 
But they can't touch what's inside 


How I long for something better
Than this life I know too well
Lord, I know I'm bound for heaven  Cause I've done my time in hell
