Bedsitter Land

This song is by Leo Sayer and appears on the album Another Year (1975).

I'm thinking of taking the easy way out
Open the window and fall to the ground
I could do it, wouldn't be much to it.

I gotta little place here in the city
It's kinda small and dirty, it's a bedsitter
And there's a lot of us living here wall to wall in one big house.

And when the night comes 'round, I can see a lot of lonely lights
There are people in there breathing but it don't seem right
In the streets way down below me, I'm listening for just one sound
But nobody comes around in bedsitterland.

And there's a man down below me on the balcony crying to be heard
Screaming to be heard, I'm haunted by his words
And the people in the street just shrug their shoulders saying he's disturbed
He's in another world, screaming at the birds
Crying to be heard, I hear his every word.

I've slept in the gutter on a summer's day
Oh, I've bummed cigarettes in the night cafes
Oh, I've joined the breadline, believe I got a deadline.

I gotta little place here in the city
Oh, it's kind of small and dirty, it's a bedsitter
And there's a lot of us living here wall to wall in one big house.

And when the night comes down, I can see a lot of lonely lights
There are people outside breathing but id don't seem right
In the street way down below me, I'm listening for just a sound
But nobody comes around, oh the lights are going down
Nobody comes around in bedsitterland.
