"Sounds of the City" as written by and Benjamin Nichols....
I ain't no, good no more
at being alone like I was before
so darlin girl, won't you call my name
give me something to believe, take away the pain
I wanna take you out to a show
I wanna kiss you while the bands play their rock and roll.

I'm fallin in love to the sounds of the city
all the streets lead me always back to you
no need to be shy you're lookin' too pretty
please tell me what should i do.

It ain't sad, its just the way it goes
what are ya doing in this kinda place all alone?
now ain't the time to be going home
if you stay I think we can get along
me and my friends we might not look like much
but we got the time and we know when to push our luck.

I'm fallin in love to the sounds of the city
all the streets lead me always back to you
no need to be shy you're lookin' too pretty
please tell me what should i do.

Just hold on to me, give me your hand
everyones watching I don't give a damn
I just need you, need you to see
My hearts in my hands, I'm asking you please
Can't you hear trains crossin' over the seventh street bridge
the sounds of the bars closing down and the kids
who don't wanna go home but they can't stay here
and the moon's sinking low in the sky

It ain't sad, its the way it goes
what are ya doing in this kinda place all alone?
now ain't the time to be going home
if you stay I think we can get along
me and my friends we might not look like much
but we got the time and we know when to push our luck.

I'm fallin in love to the sounds of the city
all the streets lead me always back to you
no need to be shy you're lookin' too pretty
please tell me what should i do. x2

Please tell me what should I do.
