"Big City Nights" as written by Rudolf Schenker and Klaus Meine....
When the daylight is falling down into the night
And the sharks try to cut a big piece out of life
It feels alright to go out to catch an outrageous thrill
But it's more like spinning wheels of fortune
Which never stand still

Big city, big city nights
You keep me burning
Big city, big city nights

When the sunlight is rising up in my eyes
And the long night has left me back at somebody's side
It feels alright for a long sweet minute like hours before
But it's more like looking out for something
I can't find anymore

Big city, big city nights
You keep me burning
Big city, big city nights
Always yearning

There is no dream
That you can't make true, if you're looking for love
But there's no girl
Who's burning the ice away from my heart
Maybe tonight!

Big city, big city nights
You keep me burning
Big city, big city nights
Always yearning

Big city, big city nights
You keep me burning
Big city, big city nights
Always yearning

    General CommentThis is the song that made me a Scorpions fan. "Rock You Like a Hurricane" might get more airplay, but "Big City Nights" by far is more engaging and addictive. Great lyrics/vocals, great guitars, great everything--and inspired by Tokyo at dawn, no less! What a great, hard-rockin' song!

    General CommentWell, the theme of the song is quite obvious... And that makes the mind wander... Why the heck hasn't anyone taken a crack at explaining the meaning of the song yet? :P
    Well...
    Dating. In the city. Looking for that one right person. Period.

    General CommentThis song rocks and I have loved ever since I’ve moved, up here to hill-billy hell, from the city. So in a nut shell it reminds me of "home".

    My InterpretationThis song is about looking for love in the city, more than just a one night stand. He has hope of finding someone special each night he goes out, "Maybe Tonight!"
