​Metropolis Blue

This song is by Jack Lukeman and appears on the album Metropolis Blue (1999).

Sometimes I ask myself, how did I get here?
Country boy with no change for his fares
And city girls are so expensive
I want to go back to the girl that I love
I would go back there if I could
I know I should

I need you, my lips ache for your kiss
I need you, and not this hungriness

I just spend my time hanging round here
With the boys drinking whiskey, drinking beer
Fool I was, thought adventure was near
Those easy thrills are so elusive I fear

My heart sings for the one that I love
I would go back there if I could
I know I should
I need you, my tune lacks your melody
I need you, my eyes no longer see

I am floating like an autumn leaf
On the whim of a breeze I float
I would give almost anything
A thousand jewels, An enchanted view
Or a billion poems but I'm a fool
I can barely write a note
But we live in hope

I need you for all eternity
I need you, are you my destiny?
I need you. I need you.
