You started on the streets with a small time gig
{You were} a brand new face in a worn out scene
{You got a} bad reputation that scars your name
{You're} another young man with another lost dream

{You were} just a young boy, still had a gleam in your eye
You turned your back on the world and you left it all behind

We're all gonna die someday and your whole world will fade away
{Your} only memories are broken hearts and lies
It's one more drink to kill the pain and it's one more needle in your vein
{And you'll} cry away the ruins of another day

Chasing broads and playing with guns
Hanging out under the city sun
You had your brothers and you had your friends
Who stood by you in the end
You had spent all your time on the west bank
Another revelation in the drunk tank
But now it ain't worth the fight
And it's getting dark under the city lights

{You were} just a young boy, still had a gleam in your eye
You turned your back on the world and you left it all behind

We're all gonna die someday and your whole world will fade away
{Your} only memories are broken hearts and lies
It's one more drink to kill the pain and it's one more needle in your vein
{And you'll} cry away the ruins of another day
