Lyrics

There’s sweet hearts dancing
In the corner of a bar I know
Despite all of there steps
They’ve still got a ways to go
There’s a street full of churchs
Preaching them same old words
Pardon me brother
Won’t you teach me something I ain’t heard
- It’s not good enough for me

I was born in the dark but I see the lights
Baby don’t you hold on tight
We’ve been through this before
But I ain’t hanging around this town no more

There’s a view of the city
Where lovers go to play
Rusty cars
And kisses that fade away
There’s trouble on the square
With blood falling on the street
Breaking bones because
There’s a women who will always cheat
- It’s not good enough for me

I was born in the dark but I see the lights
Baby don’t you hold on tight
We’ve been through this before
But I ain’t hanging around this town no more

I’ve seen the streets
And the buildings in the catalogs
At the limits of the sky
A man’s got climb or fall

I was born in the dark but I see the lights
I was born in the dark but I see those lights
I was born in the dark but I see those lights

Baby don’t you hold on tight
We’ve been through this before
But I ain’t hanging around this town
But I ain’t hanging around this town
