The boy inside the man, looks hard into the night
The neighborhood can't get to sleep
The stereo is playing something hard and fast
The boy is tough, he plays for keeps

No one's gonna tell him he's too wild
Everybody knows he's a problem child
He's a hard rock, he's a hard rock, he's a hard rock kid (kid)
It's a hard time, it's a fine line, for a hard rock kid
He's a hard rock, he's a hard rock, he's a hard rock kid (kid)
Leave him alone, he's in a hard rock zone

In the shadows, there's a heart that's beating strong
And through the night, he feels the heat
He's like a stranger as he dances on the stage
He's made a promise that he can't keep

But no one's gonna tell the boy he's wild
Everybody knows he's a hungry child
He's a hard rock, he's a hard rock, he's a hard rock kid (kid)
It's a fine line, it's a hard time, for a hard rock kid
He's a hard rock, he's a hard rock, he's a hard rock kid (kid)
Leave him alone, he's in a hard rock zone

She watches as he turns, pretending not to care
And yet she knows the way he feels
The need for love so strong, together they can win
For now the music's all that's real

But no one's gonna tell the boy he's wild
Everybody knows he's a problem child
He's a hard rock, he's a hard rock, he's a hard rock kid (kid)
It's a hard time, it's a fine line, for a hard rock kid
He's a hard rock, he's a hard rock, he's a hard rock kid (kid)
Leave him alone, he's in a hard rock zone
He's a hard rock, he's a hard rock, he's a hard rock kid (kid)
It's a hard time, it's a fine line, for a hard rock kid
He's a hard rock, he's a hard rock, he's a hard rock kid (kid)
Leave him alone, he's in a hard rock zone
