The sun goes down The night rolls in You can feel it starting all over again The moon comes up And the music calls You're getting tired of staring at the same four walls You're out of your room And down on the street Moving through the crowds through the midnight heat The traffic roars And the sirens scream You look at the faces, its just like a dream
Nobody know where you're going Nobody cares where you've been
'Cause you belong to the city You belong to the night living in a river of darkness, beneath the neon light You were born in the city Concrete under your feet It's in your blood, its in your moves You're a man of the street
When you said goodbye You were on the run Tryin' to get away from the things you'd done Now you're back again And you're feeling strange So much has happened, but nothing has changed
You still don't know where you're going Your still just a face in the crowd
'Cause you belong to the city
You can feel it You can taste it You can see it You can face it You can hear it You're getting near it You want to make it 'Cause you can take it.
