"Night In The City" as written by and Jeff Lynne....
Standin' at the airport
Lookin' down the strip,
She was cryin' her eyes,
She was bitin' her lip.
747 just left from gate eleven
And there's no turnin' round
'cos it's just leavin' the ground
And gettin' higher.

Standin' at the dock-side

Lookin' out to sea
When I saw her there
But she did not see me.
There she stood with no hope
Because she'd missed the boat
And as her dreams sailed away
She headed back for the day,
Back to the city.

Night in the city, oh oh oh,
Madness at midnight,
Night in the city
Drivin' you insane.

I was runnin' kinda lonely
At the city place.
I waited for an hour,
Never saw her face.
Crazy ladies that wait
And slide around like a snake
I just can't take anymore,
I'm going in through the door
Into the city.

Night in the city, oh oh oh,
Madness at midnight,
Night in the city
Drivin' you insane.
