What am I doin' here
In such a lonely place?
Birds fly below
I'm high up in my cage

Wide awake again
Or am I dreamin'?
Trains passing by
World's spinning 'round my head

Then I heard a sweet voice cry
Telling me, yeah it's gonna be alright

I just look at the skyline
A million lights are lookin' back at me
And when they shine
I see a place I know I'll find some peace
I just look at the skyline

I used to rush around
To keep busy in the day
Then we'd sit up and drink
We might find something new to say
No, I can't live this way...

But then I heard that sweet voice cry
Telling me, yeah it's gonna be alright

I just look at the skyline
A million lights are lookin' back at me
And when they shine
I see a place I know I'll find some peace
I just look at the skyline

I look at the skyline
A million lights are lookin' back at me
And when they shine
I see a place I know I'll find some peace
I just look at the skyline

What am I doin' here
In such a lonely place?
