Another day in the city
Will the sky be turning blue

Where the streets once were pretty
Lies the cold unbearable truth

We just cannot seem to catch a sunny day
In my city, oh whoa

All my life spent in this city
Never time for something new

I’m stuck right here inside my city
Where I’ll fade right out of view

How I wish some days the wind’ll take me away
From this city, oh whoa

I surely hope someday the sun will shine again
In my city, oh no
