​In The Evening

This song is by Sheryl Lee Ralph and appears on the album In The Evening (1984).

Where are people when you need 'em?
When you need some help
They're just not around
Doesn't anybody work here?
I ain't got all day, what a crazy town
New York, life in the city can be so hard
But after dark, new energy finds me
I light up the night and live like a star

In the evening
The real me comes alive
I can feel it
In the evening
Something happens that I can't describe
But it helps me to survive
It's like magic
Like something in the air
You can feel it
Close your eyes now
And your heart will take you there
Just let it take you there

Monday morning in the line at the bank
Standing around trying to cash a check
(To pay for the)
One room apartment with a beautiful view
On the alley in the back
All day, you've got to fight to defend your rights
Everyday, I work like a soldier
Working to live, living for the night

In the evening
The real me comes alive
I can feel it
In the evening
Something happens that I can't describe
But it helps me to survive
It's like magic
Like something in the air
You can feel it
Close your eyes now
And your heart will take you there
Just let it take you there

New York, new energy finds me
I light up the night and live like a star

In the evening
The real me comes alive
I can feel it
In the evening
Something happens that I can't describe
But it helps me to survive
It's like magic
Like something in the air
You can feel it
Close your eyes now
And your heart will take you there
Just let it take you there

In the evening
The real me comes alive
I can feel it
In the evening
Something happens that I can't describe
But it helps me to survive
It's like magic
Like something in the air
You can feel it
Close your eyes now
And your heart will take you there
Just let it take you there
