Lyrics

There’s people moving around with no direction,
working to get money just to get another token,
to take that train to work, and I,
what I wouldn’t give to leave this city for a day.

There’s 15 million people and I got nobody to talk to.
Over the buses, the horns and the cars,
I can almost hear, my guitar and I,
what I wouldn’t give to leave this city for a day.

I thought that boy, he loved me.
But she was beautiful, and proved me wrong,
and now I’m here singing all alone and I,
what I wouldn’t give to leave this city for a day.

And I know I’ve been working way too hard.
Playing my heart out in the park,
collecting pennies to leave this city and I,
what I wouldn’t give to leave this city for a day.
