Lyrics

CITY NIGHTS

It's a dark and scary night
No moon, just neon lights
You could cut the tension with a knife
Just another city night
All around are glarin' eyes
Some afraid of anger
Some lookin' for a fight
It doesn't matter who's wrong or right
Someone in this town is goin' down tonight
City Nights............City Nights

Another brother bites the dust
They say he shot first and then he jumped
The papers carry a different tale
He was pushed over the rail
Street justice is the law of the land
The law will tell you it's out of their hands
This city is out of control
Tonight's special is terror on a roll
City Nights .............City Nights

Roll the dice, you've got nothing to lose
Go on and take a chance and lose these New York Blues

(SOLO)

City Nights............City Nights

A single mother working late
Tryin' to make a few bucks chasin' down dates
Pushers in the doorways sellin' short life
The city is awake, she never sleeps at night
Nowhere to hide, no runnin' away
No one you can call who cares anyway
You've got to play the hand that you're dealt
Tryin' to get out is like climbing out a well
City Nights........City Nights.........City Nights.........City Nights
