From here the buildings only get bigger
I'm in the big city, baby
And life isn't going to get any sweeter
These structures turn us into ants
While the rush hour traffic keeps us moving
Fast paced - life's a race
I'm telling you –
I've got to hurry up!
I'll throw myself into the street,
And wave down a taxicab –
I'll give the driver an extra tip
And I'll tell him it's from you
I'll venture down to the underground –
I'll give the subway your regards
The world has never seemed so bright
And you know…
When the sun goes into hiding
In this park
By the lights of a city that knows nothing of slumber
I'll scribble my message onto a fifty-cent postcard
I'll tell you how sorry I am
But the choice is mine to make
I hate to say it…
And I can imagine the expression on your face
When you find out that
I won't be home again
These skyscrapers and suspension bridges are too much
For me to sacrifice
You know I love you.
You know I'll miss you.
But, please, don't be upset
Because, you know…
I'm finally home, baby.
I'm finally home.
