What goes on behind closed doors
Private wounds, open sores?
You're your own worst enemy
And cheap thrills bring you to your knees
It's thumbs down for someone you know
And it's easy come and easy go

Burn your bridges, take what you can get
Go for the throat 'cause you paid your debt
Livin' well is the best revenge, so give 'em hell

(While the city sleeps)
Yeah, it's all there in black and white
(While the city sleeps)
Yeah, through the eye of the needle gotta thread your life
(While the city sleeps)
While the city sleeps, yeah

It's a hit or miss, an eye for an eye
Live for today and don't ask why?
For better or worse
You bought and sold
They love you while you're hot
And leave you when you're cold

Burn your bridges, take what you can get
Go for the throat 'cause you paid your debt
Livin' well is the best revenge, so give 'em hell

(While the city sleeps)
Yeah, better run for your life, take your troubles to the night
(While the city sleeps)
Yeah, beggars, thieves and losers, there's no relief
(While the city sleeps)
There's no relief, while the city sleeps
(While the city sleeps)
Yeah

Burn your bridges, take what you can get
Go for the throat 'cause you paid your debt
Livin' well is the best revenge, so give 'em hell

(While the city sleeps)
While the city sleeps
(While the city sleeps)
While the city sleeps
(While the city sleeps)
Yeah, there's no relief
(While the city sleeps)
