Lyrics

CITY SOUND - words and music: eddie lee

Bus pulls into the city. People know where they’re goin’
You got no bags coz you’re runnin’. People all around you are flowin’
They don’t even care that you are there
There’s danger all around but you don’t hear the city sound

Bright lights in the city they can light you up and bring you down
You better look behind you if you hear that city sound

You’re gonna’ stay with a schoolfriend
But you don’t know exactly where she lives
Guy’s in your face “Hey babe, you need a place to stay?”
She’s not there, her phone is dead so what gives?
I know you’re all grown up and free to roam
You’re sure a big girl at home
But to that city man you’re just young and new
And child has he got plans for you

Bright lights in the city can light you up and bring you down
You better look behind you if you hear that city sound

And soon you know she ain’t a friend no more
Sleepin’ with the trash in his basement
She beat down with workin’ as the bad man’s crack-whore
And child you are her replacement
The key turns and you’re there to stay
And he will never let you go - there’s no-one there to free you
Give it a month honey and no-one will even see you

Bright lights in the city they can light you up and bring you down
So you better look behind you if you hear that city sound
When you hear that city sound (rpt.)
