Melissa Etheridge – Somewhere In The City lyrics

Out on the ocean where the gold dusk turns to blue
I let go of my heart and all my dreams of you
I drown all the memories of crazy days and nights
Clinging to the shoreline holding on with all my might
I swore I wouldn't envy all the lovers who've got a hand to hold
And I'll stand with all the others now
The dreams are bought and sold
Where are you now as this day comes to an end?
Are you somewhere in the city?
Can I find you there again?

Where the sidewalk's hard and pretty and the neon plays all night
And the junkman sings his pity and the poets love the fight
Somewhere in the city, somewhere in the city
Are you somewhere in the city tonight?

What could I give you when you only wanted more?
Where can I go now to be like I was before?
Sometimes it's so hard living out this life
Taking all the chances with the sharp edge of the knife
Did you find what you were after?
Is your spirit flying free?
Did you take your precious chains off ?
Did you leave your heart with me?
Where are you now as the twilight turns to black?
Are you somewhere in the city?
Have your footsteps led you back?

Where the sidewalk's hard and pretty and the neon plays all night
And the junkman sings his pity and the poets love the fight
Somewhere in the city, somewhere in the city
Are you somewhere in the city tonight?

Oh if I close my eyes you and I are back in the night
Underneath the street light moon drinking every drop of June
Satisfied

Love was like a fire burning in your eyes
It took one spark to ignite it
Carelessness to let it die
So I go back to the ocean and I'll pick up all my dreams
I'll gather up my heart and all my memories
Cause tonight I feel it all around me deep down in my soul
Like this darkness it surrounds me and it never lets me go
So I'll put on my coat and I'll turn off all these lights
I'll go down into the city and I'll wait for you tonight

Where the sidewalk's hard and pretty and the neon plays all night
And the junkman sings his pity and the poets love the fight
Somewhere in the city, somewhere in the city
Are you somewhere in the city tonight?
Are you somewhere in the city tonight?
Are you somewhere in the city tonight?
