Well I don't care what people say
Life is too short to hang around
So I stay so long in a place
And then move on to the next town

Oh Sunset City
I've got to see the world
Don't hold me too tightly
Don't whisper my name
Sad-eyed baby
I'm not that kind of girl
When the dice stop rolling
There's no more to the game

When the time comes to say goodbye

And in the morning I'll be gone
For other towns and other lives
I'll catch the first train, bag in hand
And I won't miss you, and you won't cry

Oh Sunset City
I've got to see the world
Don't hold me too tightly
Don't whisper my name
Sad-eyed baby
I'm not that kind of girl
When the dice stop rolling
There's no more to the game

When the time comes to say goodbye

(Chorus repeats)
