I discovered a big town
On the crest of a wave
Throwing money at strangers
Taking candy from babes
Shaking hands with the big top (?)
As the rain came down
I thought it would not stop
Sending letters to Paris
From the Empire State
Taking pictures from the top.
There's a lot of things
For you to do...
There's a lot of dreams
That won't come true.
I grew up in a big town
The lessons were not hard to learn.
If you want them to love you,
Then you must not love them, in return.
Spent the night at a party
Where I drank so much
I fell under your spell...
Eight o'clock in the morning
And the daylight makes me
Look and feel like hell.

When you live in a big town
There are sights and sounds
That make you
Want to cry...
