Flying through the sky on a twilight night
Looking down at all the city lights
I've never seen them shine so bright
Sitting here on this flight
The plane I'm on zooms over somebody's head
Wakes them up while they're lying in bed
Cos when you livin' in the city
Life ain't always so pretty
When I land I step onto a bus
And everybody makes such a big fuss
When the driver screeches his brakes
His engine's hum causes houses to shake
The bus I'm on hits somebody's wall
Talk about - a wakeup call
Now the tenant's in a real bad mood
The driver just says - "sorry dude!"
I get back home and I turn off my light
Time to go to bed and call it a night
But it seems I can't get to sleep
For all the noise & the beep beep beep
An airplane zooms, over my head
Wakes me up while I'm lying in bed
Cos when you're livin' under city lights
You have many a sleepless night
10 pillows squashed into my head
I just can't sleep & neither can Jed
([Jed] - Naah-aaahh)
Cos it seems when you live in the city
Life can be so LOUD & shitty!!
Roadworks drill outside of my room
Can't believe they started so soon
I know at work tomorrow I'll be yawnin'
COS IT'S ONLY 4 O CLOCK IN THE MORNIN!!
