Artist's Notes

[1st verse]
I went to the city, I went alone
I knew where I was going, I took the wrong road
itís not always pretty, but itís real
and that means everything to me

[1st breakdown]
This cityís dirty, but itís clean
It just depends on what you need

[chorus]
My own style and my own walk donít fit back where Iím from,
so Iím here to see the town where the runaways run
Iíll ride the train beside a poor man; it doesn't bother me at all,
Iím just doing my thing and anyway, we all ride or we all fall

[2nd verse]
I fall asleep to the traffic driving by
Echoing sounds light up the night
The space where you live is where youíre free
And this place is home enough for me

[2nd breakdown]
This cityís dirty, but itís clean
It just depends on what you mean

[bridge]
I asked these streets to save me and they handed me a prayer
who am I to say whatís right or what is fair.
I sing and hear the city, run by poets underground;
they say this is where the lost go, but Iím telling you Iím found

[chorus]
