Stroll to the café my God how time flies
And I close up my brain
another friend dies

And me I'm just the same
Soaking up Broadway
Nightlife in Detroit
And I'd buy these New York ladies If these light weren't so bright
And me I wasn't there

Stagger down main street
A knife in my side
And I fall to the gutter In tears but with pride
And me I'm feeling okay

Moving out of Central this villain knows me well
Says he'll spill the whole story
He might be lying, I can't tell
And me I'm not that kind

I've been searching for my shadow in vain
How can I be still while my lifeline remains
I've been searching for my shadow in vain
How can I be still while my lifeline remains with him

Try to steal a needle Bring peace to my head
And I'm stumbling down the alleys I find killers instead
And me I'm the cause of it all

Street corner women are taking their toll
Now they look at me, I'm dying
And I'm growing old
And me I'm loving it all

I've been searching for my shadow in vain
How can I be still while my lifeline remains
I've been searching for my shadow in vain
How can I be still while my lifeline remains with him
