I'll never see myself in the shining lights,
(Why do I keep doing this?)
Never see my name lit up at night.
(Why do I keep doing this?)

Never see my work appreciated,
(Why do I keep doing this?)
Never see my words appreciated.
(Why do I keep doing this?)


Oh, oh, oh
Can you see the headlines?
Oh, oh, oh
I'm coming in, I'm going out.
Oh, oh, oh

Big city, night life.
Big city, night life,
Big city,
Headlines

Don't wanna see my name in the shining lights.
(Why do they keep doing it?)
Anyone who's made it wears a disguise.
(Why do they keep doing it?)

All of their hard work depreciated,
(Why do they keep doing it?)
All of their hard work depreciated,
(Why do they keep doing it?)

Oh, oh, oh
Can you see the headlines?
Oh, oh, oh
I'm coming in, I'm going out.
Oh, oh, oh

Big city, night life.
Big city, night life,
Big city,
Headlines

(Instrumental)

Oh, oh, oh
Can you see the headlines?
Oh, oh, oh
I'm coming in, I'm going out.
Oh, oh, oh

Big city, night life.
Big city, night life,
Big city,
Headlines

Now that I'm in the headlines,
I can finally escape from an artless night.
