Midnight City

Lyrics

play Waiting in a  
play Waiting for a ride in the  
play The night city  
play Look and see her eyes, they  

play Waiting in a car
play Waiting for a ride in the dark
play Drinking in the  
play Following the   signs

play Waiting for a  
play Looking at the   skyline
play The city is my   (city is my church)
play It   me in the sparkling twilight

play Waiting in a car
play Waiting for a ride in the dark
play Waiting in a car
play Waiting for the right time
play Waiting in a car
play Waiting for the right time
play Waiting in a car
play Waiting for the right time
play Waiting in a car
play Waiting for the right time
