Stop and go on an empty crossing
The lights keep changing to only their hum
And standing in line along the kerb
The bin bags wait till the morning comes

You hear yourself walk echo lonely
See shadows move in every door
Are you sure that's your own footsteps behind?
Is there really nothing to turn round for?

And you feel that you're always gonna walk
The city streets all on your own
The night is dark as a car crawls by
And the road goes on and on

They don't even care about you
They never even think about you
'Cos they're gonna do without you and you're gone
Just another big city night

Over your shoulder, round every corner
Remember what's happened to people you've known
Watch for yourself, 'cos no one else will
You're gonna get it if you're alone

Suddenly a stab from a knife out of nowhere
Jumped from behind like they always do
It only makes one line in the paper you read
Somebody got it but it wasn't you

And you feel that you're always gonna walk
The city streets all on your own
The night is dark as a car crawls by
And the road goes on and on

They don't even care about you
They never even think about you
'Cos they're gonna do without you and you're gone
Just another big city night

Just another big city night
Who's it gonna be tonight?
