High In The City Lyrics

Artist: America
Album: Silent Letter

Written by Gerry Beckley and Dewey Bunnell, ©1979
Found on Silent Letter.

Now I'm high in the city
Feel the evening air
The crowds in the city
Compete for a share
It's all so busy, a complete affair
Down here...

As I walk through marble
Finding my way out to daylight
One drinking orange vodka
Someone inside here
Will give us a ride dear

I know a place where we both can go
To set our hearts on fire
I know the city's the only show

Can I take you for a ride
I can make you satisfied
All 'n all it's worth your while
Change that frown back to a smile
Tonight

Do or die in the misty city
All night long
A nightclub in the middle
Tappin' time to my song
Catch hell for leavin'
They are always wrong
Down here...

As I walk through marble
Finding my way in the night-light
Two people sit and argue
Someone inside here
Will give them a ride clear

I know a place where we both can go
To set our hearts on fire
I know the city's the only show

Can I take you for a ride
I can make you satisfied
All 'n all it's worth your while
Change that frown back to a smile
Tonight
