This big town is a shelter for me
I found a place to hide my misery.
I lost my love so long ago
And though my heart is hurting so,
The one I love will never know
As long as I stay.

In this big town I find the peace of mind
That only losers in the game of love can find,
The years have aone a crawlin' by
The true love feelins' will never die
Somehow I know deep down inside
I'll never get away from this big town,
From this big town.

In this big town there's a street of misery
And on the street there's a dwellin' place for me
In the darkness of my room I try
To sleep but all I do is cry
And still I realize that I am ever lucky to be here.

In this big town so full of lonesome tears
Just what your cheating heart has done to me
The glimmer of the city lights,
The shadows of the lonely nights
Will help me, hide me while I cry
A hundred dreaded tears.

In this big town.
In this big town.
In this big town...
