or
Cliff Richard

The city in defeat,
With no one left to beat
There's still a fading desire
To burn a naked light
Just to defy the night

Come on and call me a liar
A crumble tumble down
In fumble bumble town
Our lives a ruin
We reconstruct a bit
And pretty up a bit
We hardly know what we're doing

[Chorus: ]
But me and my baby
Make the best of this world
She's like a diamond
Innocent girl
We watch the sign of the times
Writing on the wall, cities may fall

Back through the city fog
I was another cog
For the machinery there
Now the machines have gone
The silence hanging on
I sit, I stare

[Chorus: ]

Come on and take your aim
I feel the mildest pain
Protecting something so rare
'Cause there's a gem or two
Inside the human zoo
If only you are aware

[Chorus: ]
