Stop and go on an empty crossing

The lights keep changing to only their hum

And standing in line along the kerb

The bin bags wait till the morning comes
You hear yourself walk echo lonely
See shadows move in every door

Are you sure that's your own footsteps behind?

Is there really nothing to turn round for?

(Chorus:)
And you feel that you're always gonna walk

The city streets all on your own

The night is dark as a car crawls by
And the road goes on and on

They don't even care about you

They never even think about you

Cos they're gonna do without you and you're gone

Just another big city night

Over your shoulder, round every corner
Remember what's happened to people you've known

Watch for yourself, cos no-one else will

You're gonna get it if you're alone

Suddenly a stab from a knife out of nowhere
Jumped from behind like they always do

It only makes one line in the paper you read
Somebody got it, but it was you

[Chorus:]

Just another big city night

Who's it gonna be tonight?
