Alone in a strange part of town
You're looking for a friend to hang around
I know you're tired, you're lonely
Staring out your window at this city

You're not at home, such a strange way to live
You hide the love you have to give
But then you took it out to show to me
And I'm dreaming of a dream in this city

You're not alone in a strange part of town
You can call on me to hang around
But when you get tired of seeing me
I'll be staring out my window at this city
And you'll be staring out your window at this city
