    |D                         |               |A         |
One plays with a gun while the other takes the bullet in his back

This boy's a beggar, that girl sells her soul
|D                 |                |A       |
They both work the same street, the same hell hole.

            |Bb               |Eb             |Bb          |Eb

When a child's spirit's broken and feels all hope is gone

God help them find the strength to carry on.
