"The City Is Here For You To Use" as written by David Craig, Barry Hyde, David Hyde and Ross Millard....
I will go to another place, nowhere special just another town
You should come to the other place, make it special and make no loss
Make it special and make mo loss
Cover the cost, cover the cost,
Cover the cost, cover the cost, cover the cost, cover the cost
Cover the cost, cover the cost, cover the cost, cover the cost

These extra expenses make brilliant senses
All you have to do is take your chances
Cover the cost, cover the cost, cover the cost, cover the cost
These extra expenses make brilliant senses
Extra extra

These are the things that make it better
Are you ready for the city? is the city ready for you?
Don't you know you have to choose? the city is here for you to use
Are you ready for the city? is the city ready for you?
Don't you know you have to choose? the city is here for you to use
Are you ready for the city? is the city ready for you?
Don't you know you have to choose? the city is here for you to use

Oh you have to cover the cost, cover the cost, cover the cost, cover the cost
Cover the cost, cover the cost, cover the cost, cover the cost

Are you ready for the city? city is here for you to use
Is the city ready for you? city is here for you to use
Don't you know you have to choose? city is here for you to use
City is here for you to use, city is here for you to use

Cover the cost, cover the cost, cover the cost, cover the cost
Cover the cost, cover the cost, cover the cost, cover the cost

    General CommentYeah I struggled with this one. Was going to do He Knows as well but there are bits that I can't figure out. All the other lyric sites have it wrong, too.

    General CommentIt's about life and how you can do anything (city is here for you to use) as long as your willing to take the consequences (cover the cost).

    General CommentIn the Futureheads Dvd, Barry explains how it's about his younger brother Dave &how he was like shy when they were in the big city since he was so young when they started. yadda, yadda, yadda. Some thing along those lines.

    Aside from that...I love this song. &I love it even more because during a show Barry pointed &looked at me during the part of the song, "Are you ready for the city? Is the city ready for you?..." Ah, that was a fun night.
