It's a dirty night tonight I'm just watching the world go by But nothing ever happens or works out right Under these city lights Under these city lights I've got bad, bad news I've gone and done what I always do I've fallen in and out of love with you before you even had a clue Don't tell me you can't live without me You still don't know a thing about me And how the urgency of our demise was just a matter of time Under these city lights Under these city lights It's a dirty night tonight I'm just watching the cars go by From this phone booth when I just gotta make the call And say goodbye And say goodbye I just called to say Don't tell me you can't live without me You still don't know a thing about me And how the urgency of our demise was just a matter of time Under these city lights Under these city lights You know I'm leaving and hold on while you can The tension runs as deep as this city spans You say you won't forget but I will fade so fast Write the whole world down it still won't last Don't tell me you can't live without me You still don't know a thing about me And how the urgency of our demise was just a matter of time Under these city lights Under these city lights Under these city lights Under these city lights

Drown 02:57
It didn't take much For you to want to give up When it all died And I wasn't enough The tide goes on Whether we do or not It'll pull you in And it'll let you drop But I gave it all And now there's nothing left I cannot swim I'm out of breath And you watch me drown You watch me drown Life goes on Whether we do or not It'll pull you in And it'll let you drop But I gave it all And now there's nothing left I cannot swim I'm out of breath But you watch me drown You watch it all come down I never thought That you'd watch me drown You said goodbye So long ago And I try and try But I can't let go 'Cause you used to say "You're not alone" Darling, take your time Just please, don't go anymore I never thought That you'd watch me drown You watch it all come down I never thought That you'd watch me drown

The Drugs 02:54
Wake up You've got things to do You gotta go downtown and make a buck or two Because no one's gonna save you No one's gonna save you Not today Cause you got bills to pay And no check to cash Besides, it's nobody's business where the hell you're at Or where the hell you've been Or what the hell you do all night It was the drugs, girl It was the drugs And it's not enough No, it's not enough To say you'll give up girl Say you'll give it up I know the drugs, girl When I see the drugs You said, you said that I was wrong But I knew I knew it all along That you were lying to m And I know you will never change But I'd wait, I'd wait up all night For you to get home Get home alive I didn't know where you were and now I wish I never did It was the drugs, girl It was the drugs And it's not enough No, it's not enough To say you'll give up girl Say you'll give it up I know the drugs, girl When I see the drugs She losing control Where is the girl I used to know She's losing control And you're losing me until you let it go It was the drugs, girl It was the drugs And it's not enough No, it's not enough To say you'll give up girl Say you'll give it up I know the drugs, girl When I see the drugs

Please tell me I just told myself There was still something in your eyes When we were standing on the driveway On the day we said goodbye And pretend you didn't notice There's still something in me too That brought back all the nights we'd stay up late down in our room I don't want to know that you still love me I don't want to know you still care It was the way you wouldn't let me go From your arms on the stairs And I felt your tears rip down my neck And your breath in my hair It's just one more thing that makes me sure This can't be how it ends But I know we could never go back now As you know that you're never seeing me again And that's why I don't want to know that you still love me I don't want to know you still care I just wish that you would say something So I can believe that there's nothing there I can't listen to my records Cause they're all full of and songs And every one is about us Just when everything went wrong And you keep saying this is best \ And that we both know it's true But I don't believe a word of it Every time I look at you And that's why I don't want to know that you still love me I don't want to know you still care I just wish that you would say something So I could believe that there's nothing there So I could believe that there's nothing there So I could believe that there's nothing there
