about

Song inspired the real story of a woman's 25 year battle with addiction and life on the streets in Vancouver's Downtown Eastside.

lyrics

Streets of Sin

I’ve been left out in the rain, doesn’t wash away the pain
Doesn’t heal the wounds within
I’ve been left out in the cold, turned away, and asked to go
Back to the streets again

Down the lanes, and alley ways
Gifts exchanged, games are played
Winners sometimes get to lose the crave
Along the streets of sin

I don’t wish upon a star, can’t remember back that far
Can’t think beyond my skin
I’m a number with a name, I’m a brother wrapped in shame
Notify my next of kin

Down the lanes, and alley ways
Gifts exchanged, games are played
Winners sometimes get to lose the crave
Along the streets of sin

Streetlight sunshine, sidewalk grey
There’s no rainbow at the end
It ain’t easy living hard,
With no family and no friends

Down the lanes, and alley ways
Gifts exchanged, games are played
Winners sometimes get to lose the crave
Along the streets of sin
