As the midnight fades in boys town
And the hustle stops to glow
This urban landscape sprawls before me
And the hunger starts to grow
But something more than my daddy showed to me
How he wanted to make a man of me
Living in the lonely cities of the heart
Hiding in the shadows and searching in the dark

My mama reads me like an open book
She knows when I'm up or down
But every night I stay longer
In the creole part of town
Something more than what the good lord gave to me
Something more, much more than this
Living in the lonely cities of the heart
Hiding in the shadows, searching in the dark

And it never stops, no it never stops, no one defends you now
Living in the lonely cities of the heart

(instrumental)

I can take a little pain, but not tonight again

Outside my hotel window I hear the Mardi Gras
Keep the candle burning bright Babe, i've come too far
As daylight creeps through the curtains I start to slip away,
And everything that seems so certain is just another day

Living in the lonely cities of the heart
Hiding in the shadows searching in the dark
And it never stops, no it never stops, no one defends you now
Living in the lonely cities of the heart
Hiding in the shadows searching in the dark
And it never stops, no it never stops, no one defends you now
Living in the lonely cities of the heart
Living in the lonely cities of the heart...
