I lived inside a tear
Time magnified my fear
That the world around me
Was only getting more severe

On May 1, 1990
Something changed inside me
And I saw the stars align
And I knew that it was meant to be

I didn't know at the time
My heart was on the line
But the world was turning
And suddenly the sun was shining


In a city by the sun
Maybe when you saw me then
You thought I had the world at my feet
Maybe when you looked again
You saw how I was empty
In a city by the sun


In a city by the sun
