  • Inside this city, on this empty train
    Hoping that the late night never lets me go
    I travel to the station, to the underground

    Where the dark is a friend to me
    We race along the subways
    He's a cold hand on my shoulder
    He has a plan to get you nowhere
    And the wind is a friend to me
    We're singing on the sidewalk
    With the gay boys in the back street
    There's a new band and a new beat

    Well, I remember every now and then
    Some of the places that we used to go
    But, baby, tonight I'm drunk and I don't care

    And the dark is a friend to me
    We race along the subways
    With the gay boys in a back street
    There's a new gang and a new beat
    Now it all comes back to me
    We're singing on the sidewalk
    There's a cold hand on my shoulder
    Another plan will get you nowhere
    Now it all comes back to me

    You look so stranded, are you all alone?
    I wish there was something more that I could say
    You may be someone that I used to know
    Now that's a memory, that was yesterday
    So take a hold now
    Don't ever let love go
    Don't give it up now
    Don't ever let them know
    You shake me, babe
    You shake me, babe
    You give it up so fine
    You shake so fine

    They turn their faces and they hide their eyes
    They don't want to understand; they tell you love is a lie
    There's a man on the corner screaming at the street
    "Don't let it get you"
    Who are these people
    Every one of them green
    All acting like they're friends of mine?
    They haven't got a reason, man
    They got no rhyme
    I don't want to stay here
    This is wasting my time
    She's just another girl
    He's just another boy, and they're
    Not my kind
