This city never sleeps
I hear the people walk by when it's late Sirens bleed through my windowsill I can't close my eyes
Can't control what I'm into
This tower is alive The lights that blind keep me awake With my hood up and lace untied Sleep fills my mind
Can't control what I'm into
 London calls me a stranger A traveler This is now my home, my home
I'm burning on the back street Stuck here sitting in the backseat I'm blazing on the street What I do isn't up to you
And if the city never sleeps
Then that makes two

The pavement is my friend And it will take me where I need to go
I find it trips me up
And puts me down
This is not what I'm used to
The shop across the road Fulfills my needs and gives me company When I need it Voices speak through my walls I don't think I'm gonna make it
Past tomorrow  London calls me a stranger A traveler This is now my home, my home
I'm burning on the back street Stuck here sitting in the backseat I'm blazing on the street What I do isn't up to you
And if the city never sleeps
Then that makes two

And my lungs hurt
And my ears bled
With the sound of the city life Echoed in my head
Do I need this to keep me alive?
The traffic stops and starts But I need to move along  London calls me a stranger This is not my home, home
I'm burning on the back street Stuck here sitting in the backseat I'm blazing on the street What I do isn't up to you
And if the city never sleeps
Then that makes two
