Oh, the citys alight with lovers and lies
And bright blue eyes.
Oh, the city is bright, its brighter than day tonight.
Sadie said she couldnt work out what it was all about
And so she let go.
Now Sadies on the street and the people she meets you know.
She tried to be a good girl and a good wife
Raise a good family
Lead a good life
Its not good enough
She got herself up on the 48th floor
Gotta find out
Find out what shes living for.
Oh, the citys afire
A passionate flame that knows me by name.
Oh, the citys desire to take me for more and more.
Its in the street gettin under my feet
Its in the air, its everywhere I look for you.
Its in the things that I do and say
And it I wanna live I gotta die to myself someday.
