Life In The City lyrics

And if the sun don't shine on me today
And if the subway's flooded, bridges break
Will you just lay down and take a break
Or would you rather kiss the tidal wave

And if the city's skyscrapers rise
Over this island
Would you be glad to see Manhattan for once
'Cause I'm on Bushwick time
JMZ line, Myrtle and Broadway
But I'm glad to see Manhattan for once

And if you leave
Don't leave me all alone
'Cause I'll be scared, I'll be naked
I'll be cold

And you don't want that
Because you need what you're never gonna know
So take me back
Off these streets

Or we'll be apart
Together from the start
Never, never, falling back alone

Living life in the city, oh
Won't ever be pretty, oh
You can plan if ya make it
We know now
They won't take it from you, no

And if the sun don't shine on me today
And if the subway's flooded, bridges break
Will you just lay down and take a break
Or would you rather kiss the tidal wave

And if you leave
Don't leave me all alone
'Cause I'll be scared, I'll be naked
I'll be cold

And you don't want that
Because you need
What you never could've gonna know
So take me back

Off these streets
Or we'll be apart
Together from the start
Never, never, falling back alone

Living life in the city, oh
Won't ever be pretty, oh
We can plan if we make it, oh
We know now
They won't take it from ya, no

And if the sun don't shine on me today
And if the subway's flooded, bridges break
Will you just lay down and take a break
Or would you rather kiss the tidal wave

Da, da, da, da, da, da, da, da, da
Da, da, da, da, da, da, da, da, da
Da, da, da, da, da, da, da, da, da
Da, da, da, da, da, da, da, da, da
