It all started here, she was a girl from the mid-west
He was a stranger in a strange land
Same old story 
He came for the glory 
She came looking for a young man's hand

But they found bright lights 
And endless nights
And men just used her innocent ways
He found it all so pretty, hypnotized by the city
They lost sight of the reasion 
They lost count of the days

And they were two souls searching for each other 
One spirit looking for the other  Caught between a hard hard place and a rock

Two souls searching for heaven  Rolling the dice looking for a seven 
To the tick, tick, ticking of time
 Gotta beat the clock 

Too many nights on the ledge 
He acquired a knife edge
 Still the city didn't acquiesce to his demands 
Some nights she cried for pity in the heart of the city
The city smacked her hands 

He met her one endless night
Her eyes had a light  There was something familiar about the smell of her
Skin
He held her tighter and tighter 
As he danced inside her
She knew from the moment that she let him in

They'd been two souls searching for each other 
One spirit looking for the other  Caught between a hard hard place and a rock

Two souls searching for heaven 
 Rolling the dice looking for a seven 
To the tick, tick, ticking of time
 Gotta beat the clock 
Beat the clock 
Beat the clock 
Beat the clock 

Two souls searching for each other 
One spirit looking for the other  Caught between a hard hard place and a rock

Two souls searching for heaven  Rolling the dice looking for a seven 
To the tick, tick, ticking of time
 Gotta beat the clock
