my lyricsbox
I'm thinking of takingthe easy way outopen the windowI'll
fall to the groundI could do it -- wouldn't be much too it
I gotta little place here in the cityit's kind of small
and dirty, it's a bedsitterand there's a lot of us
living herewall to wall in one big house
and when the night comes 'roundI can see a lot of lonely
lightsthere are people in there breathingbut it don't
seem rightin the streets way down below meI'm listening
for just a soundbut nobody comes aroundin bedsitterland

and there's a man below me on the balconycrying to
be heardscreaming to be heardI'm haunted by his wordsand
the people in the street just shrug their shoulderssaying
he's disturbedhe's in another worldscreaming at the
birdscrying to be heardI hear his every word
I've slept in the gutter on a summer's dayoh I've bummed
cigarettes in the night cafesI've joined the breadlinebelieve
I got a deadline
I gotta little place here in the cityit's kind of small
and dirty, it's a bedsitterand there's a lot of us
living herewall to wall in one big house
and when the night comes 'roundI can see a lot of lonely
lightsthere are people in there breathingbut it don't
seem rightin the streets way down below meI'm listening
for just a soundbut nobody comes aroundthe lights are
going downnobody comes aroundin bedsitterland
