Lyrics
Another day goes
It slowly slips me by
Another week goes
And you wonder why
That the happiness
That you once felt deep inside
Has dwindled down to somethin' boy
You can't find

Livin' in the city boy
Well it's got its high price
With all those fast cars
And all those bright lights
And livin' in the city boy
It's like sleepin' with your windows shut tight
And livin' with your eyes closed
To a simpler life

CHORUS A Oh but night after night
And day after day
It seems it always goes down
In the very same way
How could such an easy game
Be so hard to play

CHORUS B Oh but night after night
And day after day
I'm just lookin' for a reason
Just a reason to stay
Livin' in the city boy
There's got to be a better way

BREAK

Guess I'm gonna stop; now
And take a good look inside myself
To find all those answers
That I always hide
'Cause livin' in the city boy
It's like sleepin' with your windows shut tight
And livin' with your eyes closed
To a simpler life

CHORUS A
CHORUS B

Yeah livin' in the city boy
There's got to be a better way
