City Cries At Night Lyrics

Artist: Jim Ed Brown
Album: Just For You

Have you ever stopped and listened at the way that a city sheds its tears
At the streams of the junky who needs nothing more than just a needle by
I can smell a grass a burnin' some fool next door wants to charge his mind
These apartment walls are thin and the sound just walks right in
Tells me how the city cries at night
Some drunk he stumbles from the curb and mumbles and he tries to hail a cab
Some woman runs out from a bar a shoutin' that her lover's in a fight
That old meet wagon's rollin' I guess somebody's either heard her died
The corner preacher just begins to tell us all about our sins
That's another way the city cries at night
I hear a sirene whinin' and that sound don't help to lift a lonely soul
I smell the wrapper burnin' two cats are draggin' out from light to light
Some wino walks along the curb and drinks his empty bottle in the street
These apartment walls are thin and the sound just walks right in
Tells me how the city cries at night
The jet eats up the runway as it moans and groans and reaches for the blue
My baby rides her wings she's got a lovin' with some swinging disco guy
She left her screamin' heart behind when her lips made the sound of goodbye
The walls of my heart are thin and the hurt it just walks right in
Tells me how the city cries at night
The walls of my heart are thin and the hurt it just walks right in
Tells me how the city cries at night
