I need city lights, defense and weaponry
No way of knowing my life expectancy
I learn resistance like I learn to see
A living witness, a lonely refugee

I'm a war child, I'm a war baby
And that's the difference between you and me
I'm a war child

My occupation is being occupied
I stop at the corner to be identified
Across the border they pretend victory
I'm playing in the rubble and dream of destiny

I'm a war child, I'm a war baby
And that's the difference between you and me
I'm a war child

You weren't discovered by the Khmer Rouge
We hear of the troubles on the nightly news
The P.L.O. lovers, courting after the curfew
Your father and brother have the West Bank blues

You weren't discovered by the Khmer Rouge
We hear of the troubles on the nightly news
The P.L.O. 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
