"Troubled Child" as written by Jonathan Cain, Neal Schon and Steve Perry....
Sunrise, creepin' in your eyes
Cold empty side walks
Miles away from trustin' someone
Far from giving up
Young blood, cry tough
Mean street run
There's a hunger inside you
Desperate rebel runaway
Far from giving up


Someday, someway, all very soon
You'll end, long nights
Chasin' the moon

Chorus:
War with yourself
Makes you feel better
Caught behind the lines
Troubles child
Faith finds a cure
It makes you feel better
You know you can shine
Troubled child

Voices echo, from the past
Decisions made for you
Trials they made
To touch your heart
Never found their way

Repeat Chorus

    General CommentVery dramatic, moody song. I always liked the melody to this one, the theme was darker than normal for Journey

    General CommentI love the lyrics. I love Journey man. This song was sort of dark, but then again, I love that. How they can just change their music the way they do.
