Lyrics[1]

  • 1st verse
  • Looking out
  • Across the night-time
  • The city winks a sleepless eye
  • Hear her voice
  • Shake my window
  • Sweet seducing sighs
  • 2nd verse
  • Get me out
  • Into the night-time
  • Four walls wont hold me tonight
  • If this town
  • Is just an apple
  • Then let me take a bite
  • Chorus
  • If they say -
  • Why, why, tell em that is human nature
  • Why, why, does he do me that way
  • If they say -
  • Why, why, tell em that is human nature
  • Why, why, does he do me that way
  • 3rd verse
  • Reaching out
  • To touch a stranger
  • Electric eyes are everywhere
  • See that girl
  • She knows Im watching
  • She likes the way I stare
  • Chorus
  • If they say -
  • Why, why, tell em that is human nature
  • Why, why, does he do me that way
  • If they say -
  • Why, why, tell em that is human nature
  • Why, why, does he do me that way
  • I like livin this way
  • I like lovin this way
  • ahhhhh ahhhhhh...
  • 4th verse
  • Looking out
  • Across the morning
  • The citys heart begins to beat
  • Reaching out
  • I touch her shoulder
  • Im dreaming of the street
  • Chorus
  • If they say -
  • Why, why, tell em that is human nature
  • Why, why, does he do me that way
  • If they say -
  • Why, why, tell em that is human nature
  • Why, why, does he do me that way
  • I like livin this way
  • (repeat chorus and add-lib to fade)
