big city lights lyrics – average white band

hey – (look at) those big city lights
they won’t shine tonight for me
it’s raining – i’m walking the streets
my heart is way down – down in my shoes
talking, talking to myself,
there’s n*body else who can hear me

your love put me on the corner
when i came back and found you were gone
tonight i feel the city won’t
let me come home

hey – (look at) those big city lights
they used to be so friendly to me
i came to new york to make it our home
now you’ve gone and left me here – here on my own
east side, west side – who’s on my side
if i could find where you are i might know

laughing and drinking
with bad weather friends
makes me forget for a while
but every time i drain my gl*ss
all i can see is your smile

hey – (look at) those big city lights
buildings closing in on me
hey – (look at) those big city lights
only make it harder to see

i can’t believe you really left me
all this time you said i was your man,
but i’m gonna find you,
and i know that i can,
know that i can

hey –
tell me what about those big city lights
