I arrived in the city of lights
Enchanted ballrooms where I lost my life
I've closed my eyes
On your fairground smile

Seedy heroes and silver tills
Sinking suns on a sea of thrills
I place my bets
Trading with strangers in silhouette

There's a sadness
There's a joy
There's a place
There's a song that will never die
Forever

I drink your health, son of the earth
Passing ships in the modern death
We're all still fired
Old emotions still burn inside

On solid ground, round the mother tongue
A tower of hope, a joyful sound
You take your time
A hand of aces in a pack of lies

There's a sadness
There's a joy
There's a place
There's a song that will never die
Another night in this town
Holds me close, holds me there
The searchlight
Forever

I found my song and I started to sing
Took me away on an olden wing
So far from home
Standing so lonely but not alone

In this empire of ache and rhyme
Lovers and best friends are running blind
I grasp your hand
Is this the only world I understand?

There's a sadness
There's a joy
There's a place
There's a song that will never die
Another night in this town
Holds me close, holds me there
The searchlight
