Don't tear me down
I'm trying to make a go at living in this new town
Don't let the lights go out
I'm trying to make a habit of hanging around

Out in the open, under the light
Away from the crowds, away from the fights
Trying to find what's left, Trying to get right
with a friend of mine

Repeat Chorus

Jumping off the shoulders of giants, here I come
Back down to earth, before it's gone
Follow the shadow till I find the sun
Then I'll be home

Repeat Chorus
