Somewhere out there on that horizon
I know there must be somethin' better
It's survival in the city
City streets don't have much pity
In the city, oh, oh.

With my back against the wall
No one's there to catch you when you fall
Faraway from the neon sky
And I can't stay another night
In the city
In the city
In the city
In the city
