"City Song" as written by and Howard Jones....
It was that night at nowhere, I saw you standing there
Darlin' you were hungry for life, a prisoner in this land

What is it about this city, that brings us all to life
Ten millions souls vibrating
They're shimmering in the night

You mustn't think of staying
The price is more than you'd think
It's giving up the sweetest part of you
For this heartless prize

When does a vision of heaven become a living hell
Ten million souls vibrating, they're acting it out for real

Where do all the lonely people go
When they want some lovin'
Where do all the lonely people hide, when they feel like cryin'

It was that night at nowhere, a cold glass in your hand
Darlin' you were angry with life, a prisoner in this land

When does a vision of heaven become a living hell
Ten million souls vibrating, they're acting it out for real

Where do all the lonely people go
When they want some lovin'
Where do all the lonely people hide, when they feel like cryin'

Where do all the lonely people go
In this crowded city
Where do all the lonely people hide, there's no sanctuary

Nowhere to run to, nowhere to hide
Nowhere a handshake, nowhere a smile
Won't you talk with me
Spend some time and give me life

When does a vision of heaven become a living hell
Ten million souls vibrating
They're shimmering in the night

Where do all the lonely people go, when they want some lovin'
Where do all the lonely people hide, when they feel like cryin'

Where do all the lonely people go
In this crowded city
Where do all the lonely people hide, there's no sanctuary

A vision of heaven
A vision of heaven, in this crowded city
A vision of heaven
A vision of heaven, there's no sanctuary
A vision of heaven
A vision of heaven, in this crowded city
A vision of heaven
A vision of heaven, there's no sanctuary
