She's all right, she's all right
Now why don't you leave it alone?
Tired of working overtime
Seeing someone on the side
Tired of losing out in a tide of coming and going
No, she's never gonna meet him at the overpass again

This is the life
It's just passing by
You got to try harder, try harder
You better never let it go
You got to try harder, try harder
You better never let it go
That's the life, that's the life that we lead in the city
That's the life, that's the life that we lead in the city

She's a shadow in the underground
Echoing the inner city blues
Hurrying home to go lock herself up again
Yeah the people are so scary some times
They look you straight in the eye
They are all grey and ugly as they go passing in the rain
This is the life
Man, [...] in any way to net a free ride

Try harder, try harder
You better never let it go
You got to try harder, try harder
Never ever ever let it go
That's the life, that's the life that we lead in the city
That's the life, that's the life that we lead in the city
