Will you dance with me

The city's alight with lovers and lies
Bright blue eyes
The city is bright
It's brighter than day tonight

Surrender, surrender
Oh child, oh child
Surrender, surrender
Leave me alone child, oh child

Sadie, Sadie
Sadie said she couldn't work out
What it was all about, so she let go
Now Sadie's on the street
And the people she meets, you know
She tried to be a good girl and a good wife
Raise a good family, lead a good life
It's not good enough
She got herself up on the 48th floor
Got to find out, find out what she's living for

Surrender, surrender
Oh child, oh child
Surrender, surrender

It could be tonight
It won�t be tomorrow
It could be tonight
Tonight, yeah

The city's a fire, a passionate flame
That knows me by name
The city's desire to take me for more and more
It's in the street getting under my feet
It's in the air, it's everywhere I look for you
It's in the things I do and say
If I want to live
I've got to die to myself someday

Sing my song
Sing my song

Surrender, surrender
