SOMEWHERE IN THE CITY
Melissa Etheridge


Out on the ocean where the gold dusk turns to blue

I let go of my heart and all my dreams of you

I drown all the memories of crazy days and nights

Clinging to the shoreline holding on with all my might

I swore I wouldn't envy all the lovers who've got a hand to hold

And I'll stand with all the others now

The dreams are bought and sold

Where are you now as this day comes to an end?

Are you somewhere in the city?

Can I find you there again?



Where the sidewalk's hard and pretty and the neon plays all night

And the junkman sings his pity and the poets love the fight

Somewhere in the city, somewhere in the city

Are you somewhere in the city tonight?



What could I give you when you only wanted more?

Where can I go now to be like I was before?

Sometimes it's so hard living out this life

Taking all the chances with the sharp edge of the knife

Did you find what you were after?

Is your spirit flying free?

Did you take your precious chains off ?

Did you leave your heart with me?

Where are you now as the twilight turns to black?

Are you somewhere in the city?

Have your footsteps led you back?



Where the sidewalk's hard and pretty and the neon plays all night

And the junkman sings his pity and the poets love the fight

Somewhere in the city, somewhere in the city

Are you somewhere in the city tonight?



Oh if I close my eyes you and I are back in the night

Underneath the street light moon drinking every drop of June

Satisfied



Love was like a fire burning in your eyes

It took one spark to ignite it

Carelessness to let it die

So I go back to the ocean and I'll pick up all my dreams

I'll gather up my heart and all my memories

Cause tonight I feel it all around me deep down in my soul

Like this darkness it surrounds me and it never lets me go

So I'll put on my coat and I'll turn off all these lights

I'll go down into the city and I'll wait for you tonight



Where the sidewalk's hard and pretty and the neon plays all night

And the junkman sings his pity and the poets love the fight

Somewhere in the city, somewhere in the city

Are you somewhere in the city tonight?

Are you somewhere in the city tonight?

Are you somewhere in the city tonight?
