The city lights up like a cigarette
The moon's a broken heart and the stars are set
Like peep-holes in an empty sky
I wander lost alone on a Saturday night
I pass the Stalinist flats, I pass the Marxist punks
I pass the anarchist graffiti and although I'm drunk
My mind is clear, my heart's alive
I've been through this before and I know that I'll survive
I don't need your eyes, I've got the city lights
Electric lifeblood flowing through these concrete veins
And I don't need your truths
I've got one of my own...
Walking around in circles and I'm laughing at the night
You always said I was a psycho, I'm just trying to prove you right
And so the cards were stacked, I had no hand to play
The house we built collapsed, that's why I'm singing here today
And now I'm heading down to Simon-Dach, turn right up by the lights
Following the train tracks leading deep into the night
Dancing in the gutter, playing football with a stone
Turn left down by the bridge and then I take the long way home
I don't need your eyes, I've got the city lights
Electric lifeblood flowing through these concrete veins
And I don't need your words
I've got some of my own
Cold dark river keeps on flowing
I watch it from the bridge above
The moon's just another light that's glowing
On this heap of concrete that I love
I don't need your eyes, I don't need you
