"Life in the City" as written by and Matthew B. Scannell....
Cut it down go put it away
Take an inside look on the outside
Another day

Take time look at the sunshine
Have mine it's better on you anyway

Nobody's perfect all the time
But I know you
And you know me
And it's alright

Waking up gonna buy me some shoes
Take a long walk out of the hindsight start anew

Look around maybe buy a new topcoat
Stop moping the rain's gonna rain through
Rain through on you
Yes it's true that

Nobody's sunny all the time
But I know you
And you know me
And it's alright

And it's your life
And it's my life
It's our life in the city

And it's your life
And it's my life
It's our life in the city

Got a new piece out in the hills
Plant a seed I'm in need of a break from the fire drill
Repaint where all the paint ain't
Got a clean slate and maybe we can buy a thrill
I'll foot that bill
Yes I will

Nobody's busy all the time
Oh thank God that I know you
And you know me
And it's alright

Oh, you cut it down go put it away
Take an inside look on the outside
Another day

Take time look at the sunshine
Have mine it's better on you anyway

Cut it down go put it away
Take an inside look on the outside
Another day

Take time look at the sunshine
Have mine it's better on you anyway
