A city like this
Won’t understand 
Won’t get to know you
Won’t hold your hand
 Where comfort’s a subway car
 Voices are drowned 
And warmth is a feeling 
From steam underground

In a city like this
 Where dreams are for real
And laid out before you
In concrete and steel 
You talk to yourself 
To make it alright 
You do what you can
To get through the night 

How could you know
Your life was leading 
To a moment like this
How could you stop
Your heart from breaking 
In a city like this
In a city like this

 Losing my faith, losing my mind
 Trying to keep up one street at a time
There’s no way you’ll ever find me here
In a city like this

A city like this
Like any place I know
Can change in a minute 
We pay as we go
We’re measuring progress in profit and wealth 
You thought you could own a piece for yourself 

How could you know
Your life was leading 
To a moment like this
How could you stop
Your heart from breaking 
In a city like this
In a city like this

 Losing my faith, losing my mind
 Trying to keep up one street at a time
There’s no way you’ll ever find me here
In a city like this
In a city like this

How could you know
Your life was leading 
To a moment like this
How could you stop
Your heart from breaking 
In a city like this
In a city like this

 Losing my faith, losing my mind
 Trying to keep up one street at a time
There’s no way you’ll ever find me here
