Verse 1 Child of the city
Scourge of the street
So young, so gritty
So already beat
They have no jobs or goals
They live for rock and roll
And the chance to be seen
On your video screen
They know what it means to hope
They trade it for sex and dope
They live in between
The nightmare and a dream
Verse 2 At the edge of the desert
In cold tenement rooms
Wading across the river
By the light of the moon
At night when they go to sleep
Without enough to eat
They won't say a thing
But you'll hear them scream
They know what it is to need
They pay for our greed
They live in between
The nightmare and a dream
Verse 3 My baby, don't you cry
We'll sing you lullabies
Of deep blues and greens
In pastoral scenes
In the morning when you awake
You'll find the love it takes
To live in between
The nightmare and a dream
Verse 4 A world without evil
A world without war
Where everyone's equal
We've all heard it before
We hunger for peace and light
We seek them through power and might
So we squander our means
On absurd weapon schemes
We forget what it means to pray
We're breathing from day to day
We live in between
The nightmare and a dream
We live in between
The nightmare and the dream
