Lyrics

Cloth Cap Songs

I love to walk these streets
The ghost of my own childhood
It's the place where I was born
All my memories are here
There's a heart that beats so strong
It keeps me safe and warmer
And no matter where I go
I know I'll always come back home

Out in the night I can hear the voices calling
Out in the dark i can hear it more and more

I gotta shoot for the city
It's the place where I belong
I gotta shoot for the city
I can't stay away too long
I gotta shoot for the city
I'll never be alone
There's so much love round here
I gotta shoot for the city
I'll never be alone
There's nothing that I fear

My father spent his life here
Digging for the future
A man of great respect
But he never had a chance
I left when I was young
To seek out fame and fortune
I had to know what life was like
Out on the other side

Out in the night I can hear the voices calling
Out in the dark i can hear it more and more

I gotta shoot for the city
It's the place where I belong
I gotta shoot for the city
I can't stay away too long
I gotta shoot for the city
I'll never be alone
There's so much love round here
I gotta shoot for the city
I'll never be alone
There's nothing that I fear

The school where I was taught
That life was but a journey
A retired army officer, reminising about the war
The park where Sunday afternoons would last forever
And down at Johnny's place
Where we danced the summertime blues

Out in the night I can hear the voices calling
Out in the dark i can hear it more and more

I gotta shoot for the city
It's the place where I belong
I gotta shoot for the city
I can't stay away too long
I gotta shoot for the city
I'll never be alone
There's so much love round here
I gotta shoot for the city
I'll never be alone
There's nothing that I fear
