I still hang around, neither lost nor found
Hear the lonely sound of music in the night
Nights are always bright That's all that's left for me, yeah

I play the street life 'cause there's no place I can go
Street life, it's the only life I know
Street life, and there's a thousand parts to play
Street life, 'til you play your life away

You let the people see just who you wanna be
And every night you shine just like a superstar
That's how the life is played, a ten cent masquerade
You're dressed, you walk, you talk, you're who you think you are

Street life, you can run away from time
Street life, for a nickel or a dime
Street life, but you better not get old
Street life, or you're gonna feel the cold

There's always love for sale, a grown-up fairy tale
Prince charming always smiles behind a silver spoon
And if you keep it young, your song is always sung
Your love will pay your way beneath the silver moon

Street life
Street life
Street life
Street life

I play the street life because there's no place I can go
Street life, it's the only life I know
Street life, and there's a thousand parts to play
Street life, until you play your life away

You let the people see just who you wanna be
And every night you shine just like a superstar
That's how the life is played, a ten cent masquerade
You're dressed, you walk, you talk, you're who you think you are

Street life, you can run away from time
Street life, for a nickel or a dime
Street life, but you better not get old
Street life, or you're gonna feel the cold

There's always love for sale, a grown-up fairy tale
Prince charming always smiles behind a silver spoon
And if you keep it young, your song is always sung
Your love will pay your way beneath the silver moon

Street life
Street life
Street life
Street life
