The cry of the city like a siren's song
Wailing over the rooftops the whole night long
Saw a shooting star like a diamond in the sky
Must be someone's soul passing by

These are the streets where we used to run, where your Papa's from
These are the days where you become what you become
These are the streets where the story's told
The truth unfolds, darkness settles in

Shine your light down on me
Lift me up so I can see
Shine your light when you're gone
Give me the strength to carry on, carry on

Don't wanna be a hero, just an everyday man
Trying to do the job the very best he can
But now it's like living on borrowed time
Out on the rim, over the line

Always tempting fate like a game of chance
Never wanna stick around to the very last dance
Sometimes I stumble and take a hard fall
Loose hold your grip off the wall

Shine your light down on me
Lift me up so I can see
Shine your light when you're gone
Give me the strength to carry on, carry on

I thought I saw him walking by the side of the road
Maybe trying to find his way home
He's here but not here, he's gone but not gone
Just hope he knows if I get lost

Shine your light down on me
Lift me up so I can see, yeah
Shine your light when you're gone
Give me the strength to carry on, carry on

Shine your light down on me, down on me
Shine your light when you're gone
To carry on, to carry on
Hey oh oh
