Looking down I watch the night
Runnin' from the sun
Orphan stars and city lights
Fadin' one by one
Oh sweet memories
I call on you now

Two too many hearts been broke
Along this lonely road
Steel grey eyes can shine the lies
Until they look like gold
Cold city sidewalks
Can turn your heart to stone
The street won't defeat me
'Cause I've got the will
I'll survive
I don't mind runnin' alone

I believe that every soul
Has a song to sing
The spirit's locked in every man
Waitin' for a wing
Oh so much is wasted
And oh so little used
The trick of the dreamer
Is keeping yourself
From the blues
And I don't mind runnin'

Everyone's a hero
If you want to be
Everyone's a prisoner
Holdin' their own key
Every step I take
Every move I make
Always one step closer
I don't mind runnin' alone

Laughing children echo down
The concrete alleyways
Oh their voices callin', callin'
Callin' yesterday
(Can Steve come out and play)
Oh sweet memories
Returning to me now
When young eyes saw clearly

Everyone's a hero
If you want to be
Everyone's a prisoner
Holdin' their own key
Every step I take
And every move I make
Always one step closer
I don't mind runnin' alone
