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, a 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
And messed up child, lonely boy tonight
Kick the wall, turn the street and back again
Oh boy you've been forgotten

Child, child staring into the street light
And messed up child, lonely boy tonight
Kick the wall, turn the street and back again
Oh boy you've been forgotten

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
