"This City Never Sleeps" as written by Annie Lennox and David Allan Stewart....
This City Never Sleeps

You can hear the sound
Of the underground trains
You know it feels like distant thunder

You know there's so many people
Living in this house
And don't even know their names

I guess it's just a feeling, in the city)

Walls so thin I can almost
Hear them breathing
And if I listen in
I feel my own heart beating

    General CommentThis song is about the part in Annie's life when she moved to London and lived in a lonely flat, and describes the sounds and other senses of her first home.

    General CommentAs above states, just about sums things up. Personal meaning though: apart from being one of the sexiest songs ever (rhythmical, soft, sensual - and no, I came to this conclusion well before 9.5 weeks highjacked it for their own ends). The words suggested to me the general isolation of us all in this universe. We are surrounded by people and sound and stimulus, even to the point of intrusiveness. But in reality, none of these things pierces the skin of our soul and we don't really know anyone or anything well at all, only the sound of ourselves. It's a very sad song.
