Lyrics

i’ve put on something you can’t switch off
i hope i don’t cry, but i know i will and you know how it feels
on the north side, on the south side
they sing along when you switch on

you switch on for the city while i'm gone from the city
come on strong winds move on
you belong in the city, i‘m wrong for the city
switch on a sad song when I’m gone

when in new york i stay indoors
go into the city and switch up the pity
on the train someone says something about how jesus saves
but i’m too lost to be found
you put on a good face when i wasn’t around
on the east side, on the west side
they sing along when you switch on
they sing along when you switch on

you switch on for the city, while i'm gone from the city,
come on strong winds move on
you belong in the city, i‘m wrong for the city
switch on a sad song when I’m gone
