4:30 in the morning, I’m tattered, tired and torn
Trying to keep up with the pace, this ain’t my home and it ain’t my place
The candle keeps on burning at this point there’s no returning
The policy is clear - anything goes when you are here

Almost anything goes
From the nightclubs to the shows
Almost anything goes
From the haircuts to the clothes
Almost anything goes
From your head down to your toes
Almost anything goes
Does this place ever close?

I wanna wake up in a city that likes to go to bed
Where they know what time of day it is, but I’m stucked here instead
Now all the rules is disregarded, so I hopely all get started
Moving at that hyperspeed this city seems to need

Almost anything goes
From the nightclubs to the shows
Almost anything goes
From the haircuts to the clothes
Almost anything goes
From your head down to your toes
Almost anything goes
Does this place ever close?

Nice place to visit but I don’t wanna die
I stay on my toes whenever I go by
Nice place to visit but I don’t wanna die
I stay on my toes whenever I go by

I was killing all my money, spending brain cells just as fast
So grabbed a taxi cab and head somewhere where I can crash
Port authority driver home’s my destination
Don’t no one wake me up 'till we’re near Park Street Station

Almost anything goes
From the nightclubs to the shows
Almost anything goes
From the haircuts to the clothes
Almost anything goes
From your head down to your toes
Almost anything goes
Does this place ever close?

Nice place to visit but I don’t wanna die here
I stay on my toes whenever I go by
There’s this electric lure, that’s so attractive
But I’d rather hang my hat on a hook that’s not so active
I was walking on the wild side, I was in that state of mind
The neon lights were bright, but I’ll be leaving them behind
Big city of dreams can be a nightmare
Knife, fork, bottle, cork, I’m outta here
I’m outta here

Nice place to visit but I don’t wanna die
I stay on my toes whenever I go by
Nice place to visit but I don’t wanna die
I stay on my toes whenever I go by

Almost anything goes
Anything
