Summer in the city

– desperate hours breed desperate days
& the setting sun, it shadows
– desperate lives & desperate ways
neon lights swelter in the haze

There are heroes in the night where the beggars sing
The girls in stalls will sell you anything
Can you hear on the streets that yer walking along
The sound of footsteps the sound of song

– love on the horizon when the weather is warm
Crazy nights that last forever
– until the coming of the winter storm

She’s bordered on the breach of insanity
‘Cause she can’t escape the hum of the city
It’s a desperate time & ain’t it a pity
The devil brought that country girl to the city
