lyrics

I lose my cool when twilight falls
And I see how fast the world is turning
The buildings bend to the sirens' call
Feels like the city itself is breaking free
And I don't know where it's taking me

But when the sun goes down it's a natural panic
A little bit frightening, a little romantic!
The empty streets and the flickering beat
Of your heart
(And I could see it)
The skyline looms and we just can't stay in
We head out for a drink and for a little parlaying
'Cause every day we feel a little more alive
If we die just a little each and every night

I don't know
Who you are
I've only seen
You in the dark

How my heart trembles every night
When I hear the city murmuring
A breath of steam, a blur of sound
A tremor speeding through the underground
As all the subways head downtown

But when the sun goes down it's a natural panic
A little bit frightening, a little romantic!
The empty streets
And the tom-toms deep in my blood
(Could you feel them?)
In the dark things look sharp and stylized
The heaviest of lids couldn't hide my wild eyes
'Cause every day I feel a little more alive
If I die just a little each and every night

I don't know
Who you are
I've only seen
You in the dark

And I don't know
Where else you've been
When you are not
Here in my dreams
