Child of War

Brian Kennedy - Lyrics
Brian Kennedy & Billy Farrell - Music

I AM A CHILD OF WAR IN A HOSPITAL WARD, I AM AFRAID FOR SURE

I AM A CHILD OF WAR BUT I’M A MAN OF PEACE, WHEN WILL THIS NIGHTMARE CEASE

THANK YOU CHILDHOOD FOR GIVING ME THIS VOICE

AND YOU ADULTHOOD FOR HELPING ME MAKE THIS CHOICE

CAUSE I’M A CHILD OF WAR

 

AN ACCIDENT OF BIRTH NOW I KNOW MY WORTH

I AM A CHILD OF WAR WITH A SUSPECT DEVICE SINGING THREE BLIND MICE

THANK YOU CHILDHOOD FOR GIVING ME THIS SONG

AND YOU ADULTHOOD FOR LETTING ME RIGHT THIS WRONG

CAUSE I’M A CHILD, I AM A CHILD OF WAR BUT I AM TOUGHER THAN YOU THINK

AND I KNOW I’LL SURVIVE SO DONT EVER DOUBT THAT WILL RISE AGAIN

 

I AM A CHILD OF WAR IN A HOSPITAL GOWN WITH A BROKEN CROWN

I AM A CHILD OF WAR I AM THE FINAL GONG I AM THE SOLDIERS SONG

THANK YOU CHILDHOOD FOR MAKING ME SO STRONG

AND YOU ADULTHOOD FOR LETTING ME LIVE THIS LONG

CAUSE I’M A CHILD OF WAR

I AM A CHILD OF WAR IN A RECOVERY WARD BUT I’M AFRAID NO MORE

I AM A CHILD OF WAR WITH A SUSPECT DEVICE SCREAMING THREE BLIND MICE

I AM A CHILD OF WAR AND I’M AFRAID NO MORE
