Spotlight

This song is by Dave Matthews Band.

In the spotlight life is so peachy, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Wouldnt you like to retire with a million?

A million beating hearts behind brick and cold steel piping
Fighting for the top, fighting for the room to be bench park sleepers
Like cold blanket bedless babies
Here this must stop, here I cannot stay
Big city, black city rises up around me, steal my soul away
Big city, black city rise and take me over, steal my soul away

But out, out in the world, the night it falls
It falls much harder than I recall
Out in the world, the sirens calls from every corner to say

In the spotlight life is so peachy, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Unless youre in the spotlight for reason, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Caught for stealing somebodys riches, no, no, no, no
Wouldnt you like to retire with a million bucks? yeah

Came here from a small town
Seen my dreams here in the big cities
How disappointing, here i cannot stay
Big city, black city rise and take me over, steal my soul away
Big city, black city rising all around me, steal my soul away

But out, out in the world, the night it falls
It falls much harder than I recall
Out in the world the sirens call from every corner, they say

In the spotlight life is so peachy, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Unless youre in the spotlight for reason, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Caught for stealing somebodys riches, no, no, no, no
Wouldnt you like to retire with a million bucks? yeah

Big city, black city rise and take me over, steal my soul away
Big city, black city rising all around me, steal my soul away
But out, out in the world, the night it falls
It falls much harder than I recall
Out in the world the sirens call from every corner, they say

In the spotlight life is so peachy, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Unless youre in the spotlight for reason, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Caught for stealing somebodys riches, no, no, no, no
Wouldnt you like to retire with a million bucks? yeah
