"Sound of the City" as written by and Tom Mcrae....
So baby there you stand
The bottle in your hand
Shouting to the night
While the city sleeps

Caught in the light of a car
Or subways station sparks
I see your face again
Guess it?s time to leave

And I watch you fall from a great height
And you watch me fail night after night
And the still the sound, still the sound of the city tonight
Keeps my dreams and my demons alive
Baby I?m still alive

I hear the city breathe
I dream the city?s dreams
And she?s still in my arms
For another year

So bring your broken hearts
Call me The King of Cards
I?ll make it disappear
With a sleight of hand

And I watch you fall from a great height
And you watch me fail night after night
And the still the sound, still the sound of the city tonight
Keeps my dreams and my demons alive
Baby I?m still alive

Still you don?t come, you won?t come
But the fever has broken
And the daylight is blinding your eyes
And still you don?t come, you won?t come
But the city she?s not done
She?s calling, she?s calling your name
