"Heartbreak City" Lyrics [edit]
by Michael Omartian | from the album The Race

It's another night headed for nowhere,
It's another face alone in the crowd,
One more walking wounded who once lost her dream,
Downtown, the dark is selling, for beauty, what's just a lie in full light of day,
Satisfaction is sold like cheap magazines.

There's a crack in you concrete heart that's wide enough for a tear,
There's a light, right there in the night, shining through the dark you fear.

I've seen the tears that run like rivers under the streets of this heartbreak city,
Sirens scream like a cry from above,
Lord, have mercy, we're just looking for love.

She has a dream, over and over,
The alley, at night, she knows has no end,
Any man with a fee is her one and only,
Here I sit, like a judge and a jury,
I can't hear it when the wounded scream,
While every last lost soul in the city knows the nightmare of a lost dream.

I've seen the tears that forge like rivers under the streets of this heartbreak city,
A silent scream like a cry from above,
Lord, have mercy, we're just looking for love.

There's a crack in you concrete heart that's wide enough for a tear,
There's a light, right there in the night that's shining through the dark you fear.

I've seen the tears that run like rivers under the streets of this heartbreak city,
Sirens scream like a cry from above,
Lord, have mercy, we're just looking for love,
I've seen the tears that run like rivers under the streets of this heartbreak city,
Sirens scream like a cry from above,
Lord, have mercy, we're just looking for love.

Yes, we are,
We're just looking for love,
Oh yeah,
Sirens scream like a cry from above,
Lord, have mercy, we're just looking for love.
