The city never sleeps
There's people on the streets
And lights assigned to everything
The city never sleeps
It's calling out to you by name and its hospitality

I want to see something
Something new
Besides the ace and king of spades

The city never sleeps
And everyone is digging deep
'Cause when you're down you're down
The city never sleeps
And everyone is betting steep and ordering another round

I want to see something
Something new
Besides the ace and king of spades
See something
Something new
Besides the hope of painted face

6 a.m.
Tonic and gin
Tricks for tips just hit me again
6 a.m.
Tonic and gin
Tricks for tips just hit me again
He says "deal me in"
Seven and ten
Hit me again, victory I win

I want to see something
Something new
Besides the ace and king of spades
See something
Something new
Besides the hope of painted face

See something
See something new
See something new
