[Intro]
Oh oh, I can't even take it in.
Oh oh, I can't even take it in.
Oh oh, I left my heart in Metropolis.

[Verse]
So far apart, I checked that the coast was clear,
I feel like a post card; I wish you were here.
Subway through the dark, Carriage through the park.
Taxi down the street, get out and use my feet
Don't matter much to me what it is that I do, as long as I'm coming home with you.

[Chorus]
Oh oh oh, as far as I can see,
You're the only one, the only one who can get to me.
Like a hijacked plane, or a runaway train,
Or a speeding bullet, there's no stoppin' this!
I left my heart in Metropolis!

[Verse]
A thousand miles feels like a million years,
Like hundreds of postcards that say I wish you were here!
Airplane through the sky, Greyhound racing by,
Dirt bike on the beach, sailboat on the sea,
Don't matter much to me what it is that I do, as long as I'm coming home with you.

[Chorus]
Oh oh oh, as far as I can see,
You're the only one, the only one who can get to me.
Like a high jacked plane, or a runaway train,
Or a speeding bullet, there's no stoppin' this!
I left my heart in Metropolis!
I left my heart in Metropolis!

Like a hijacked plane, or a runaway train,
Or a speeding bullet, there's no stoppin' this!
I left my heart in Metropolis!
I left my heart in Metropolis!
I left my heart in Metropolis!
I left my heart in Metropolis!

Oh oh, I can't even take it in.
Oh oh, I can't even take it in.
Oh oh, I can't even take it in.
Oh oh, I left my heart in Metropolis.
