They Wanted To Dance They Wanted To Fly


The cities are full of the young and displaced who have left their homes for a myriad of reasons and who are now trying to survive on the streets.

Thanks to Reg the Rapper for the intro words.

She wore black lace
Bought in a corner store
She took her place in the world
His was such a young face
Sixteen years no more
They were just a boy and a girl

And they were careful clean and pure
Full of questions and what is more
They were heading out for New York

In the city love was strained
They were breaking, dreams were stained
Temptation was in the air

The girl went out she didn’t come back
The boy got knifed in a street attack
Parents left unaware
