"Big City Life" as written by and Matthew Good....
Caught your eye
You are my street light
Throw off your blues and use your red and whites
And waves to caution your days and nights
And wandering
And wandering
And wandering

Carolina was a gambler
So she came into the city
There she died when she was twenty one
Cause big city life is fun
Yeah, big city life is fun

"Tough it out"

Cut your heart out
You are my star light
Tear down the blues and fly your red and whites

I swim with the fishes cause the fish are alright
Oh my, my just to get you to bite
I swim with the fishes cause the fish are alright
Oh my, my just to get you to bite

Carolina was a gambler
So she came into the city
There she died when she was twenty one
Cause big city life is fun
Yeah, big city life is fun

I swim with the fishes cause the fish are alright
Oh my, my just to get you to bite
I swim with the fishes cause the fish are alright
Oh my, my I've been wandering
Been wandering
Been wandering

Carolina was a gambler
So she came into the city
There she died when she was twenty one
Cause big city life is fun
Yeah, big city life is fun

Yeah, yeah
