Songfacts®:

  • Running to around 3 minutes 44 seconds, the title of this uptempo John Lawton/Peter Hesslein composition speaks for itself. Track 6 on the Too Late To Hate album, in a November 2016 email interview, lyricist Lawton said it "concerns kids or teenagers who run to the big city, expecting the good life and streets paved with gold."

    There are obvious comparisons with "Stranger In The City" by John Miles and perhaps even more so with "Low Life In High Places" by Thunder. >>
