WHILE THE CITY SLEEPS
Simmons/Weissman

[Rhy. Fig 1]

[Rhy. Fig 2] (3x)
What goes on behind closed doors
Private wounds, open sores
You¥re your own worst enemy
And cheap thrills bring you to your knees
It¥s thumbs down for someone like you
Easy come, easy go

[Rhy. Fig 3]
Burn your bridges, take what you can get
Go for the throat because you paid your debt
Livin¥ well is the best revenge
So give ¥em hell

[Rhy. Fig 1] (4x)
While the city sleeps
Better run for your life
Take your troubles to the night
While the city sleeps
Beggars, thieves and losers
There¥s no relief

[Rhy. Fig 2]
For better or for worse you¥ve bought and sold
They love you while you¥re hot
And leave you when you¥re cold
[Riff 1]

[Rhy. Fig 3 w/ Riff 2]
Burn your bridges, take what you can get
Go for the throat because you paid your debt
Livin¥ well is the best revenge
So give ¥em hell

[Rhy. Fig 1]
While the city sleeps
Better run for your life
Take your troubles to the night
While the city sleeps
Beggars, thieves and losers
There¥s no relief 
[Rhy. Fig 4 w/ Riff 3]

[Solo over Rhy. Fig 1]

[Rhy. Fig 3 w/ Riff 4]
Burn your bridges, take what you can get
Go for the throat because you paid your debt
Livin¥ well is the best revenge
So give ¥em hell 

[Rhy. Fig 1 w/ Riff 5]
While the city sleeps
It¥s all there in black and white
While the city sleeps
Through the eye of the needle
Gotta thread your life

[Rhy. Fig 4 w/ Riff 6]
