HERE IN THE CITY Janis Ian You don't see many shadows here in the city Only picturesque windows, all covered and dirty Black and grey that once was new Yesterday that once was you No I can't find my shadow in the city We got canyons of smoke and steel-blue horizons Our castles explode as the city lays dying History that once was new Memories that once were true No I can't find my shadow in the city And oh, for the green green hills of home For the hills I used to roam so many years ago Oh, for the love that's now grown cold For the love that's now grown old as the hills I used to know You don't find many lovers here in the jungle Only magazine covers designed for the humble Cold caress that burns and slides Emptiness that's hard to hide Used to be I knew my mind but I can't find my shadow in the city
