I see the traffic in the streets
I hear the songs subways sang beneath our feet
And is it rain or tears that I feel
Upon my face, the cities seems unreal

I see the lights
I see the lights
But there's no warmth
Or shelter in the night

People pass me on the way
And they see my eyes are filled with yesterday
When you were here, I felt your heart beat near
Now the dark sides never clear

I see the lights
I see the lights
But there's no warmth
Or shelter in the night

I've been this way before
A thousand times or more
And though the places are the same
The faces are all yours

Oh

I see the lights
I see the lights
But there's no warmth
Or shelter in the night

I see the traffic in the streets
I hear the songs subways sang beneath our feet
And is it rain or tears that I feel
Upon my face, the cities seems unreal

I see the lights
I see the lights
But there's no warmth
Or shelter in the night

I see the lights
I see the lights
But there's no warmth
Or shelter in the night
