Big, old, cold and lonely city
Once I've thought you're pretty
But now you're not pretty anymore
Your tall buildings, flashing neon signs
Captured every dream of mine
And I came knocking on your heartless door.

I had visions of success
Planned my wealth and happiness
Can't we safely say I've been a fool
Like a fool I thought you had a heart
You tore my thoughts and dreams apart
Oh, cold and lonely city you've been cruel.
