lyrics

I see the people on the city streets
Where they come from and where they go I don’t know
Underneath the sodium lights I might catch an eye or two
With a wink and a nod that says you’re one of us
Jostled by the ebb and flow I feel the pulse of the city at night
Lose myself in the swirls of many evenings,
winding up, winding down
As we head into the depths between the dusk and the dawn
I feel the pull of the places where the lights are low
and the shades are drawn

You’re us, we’re them, you’re one of my kind baby

Look around you, cause everyone you see,
sees the world in black and white
Left or right, right or wrong
But not me, I’m different, well I see the shades
Cause I’m a grey boy

Finding a moment of stillness in the midst of this crush of humanity
Reach my senses out to the edges of this city at night
Feel the rhythms of the bars and the rooms, listen closely
For some the day is over but for us the evening has just begun

You’re us, we’re them, you’re one of my kind baby

Listen around you, cause everyone you hear,
hears a world that’s black and white
Left or right, right or wrong
But not me, I’m different, I hear the shades
Cause I’m a grey boy
