MEET ME IN THE CITY

Hey girl I'm calling all stations, blowing down the wire tonight
I'm singing through these power lines, I'm running on time and feeling alright
Skipping over the currents in the air, reaching to see if you're out there
Coming across your radio station, calling out nation to nation
If you can hear me then say alright
And if you can, meet me in the city tonight

I was busted for feeling no pain
Charged with doing things I can't explain
Picked up for parole violation
Locked with the boys in the subway station
Handcuffed on the killing floor
Transmitting from behind these jailhouse doors
If you're sick, if you're tired, if you're bored
Then check the line, check the time, check the action, check the score
Come and get me if I ain't right
But if I am, meet me in the city tonight

Everybody's lost in romance
Do you feel the way I feel, oh-oh
I'm just searching, girl
For the blood, for the bone, for the muscle, for what's real

I was busted for feeling no pain
Charged with doing things I can't explain
Picked up for parole violation
Locked with the boys in the subway station
I pushed my way through the heart of the crowd
I shoved my way through the heart of the crowd
Past the sign saying this is not allowed
To where someone's standing straight and shouting out loud

Handcuffed to the jailhouse door
Transmitting from the gallows floor
And if you're sick, if you're tired, if you're bored
Check the line, check the time, check the action, check the score

If you can holler, then say alright 
Meet me in the city tonight
Meet me in the city tonight
In the city, meet me in the city tonight
