  • You used to live in New York City
    Then you moved to L.A.
    But you still miss the streets
    Where you used to play

    So you hurry on back there
    Even leave your pool and your car
    Only to find you no longer belong
    Fool, don't you know what you are

    Yeah, hit the streets at midnight
    Still dancing after dawn
    But something seems to be missing
    Just what are you running from

    Do you like your love in the dark
    Or laid out in the sun?
    When you can't make up your mind
    Don't you know what you've become

    Bi-coastal, miss the natural speed of the city
    Bi-coastal, California's fine if you're pretty

    You can always hear me singing
    Oh, say can you see?
    From the towers of Manhattan
    To the hills of Beverly

    All those girls on TV movies
    All those boys on Broadway
    When you can't make up your mind
    You know you go either way

    Bi-coastal, miss the natural speed of the city
    Bi-coastal, California's fine if you're pretty, oh yeah
    Bi-coastal, miss the natural speed of the city, oh yeah, yeah
    Bi-coastal, California's fine if you're pretty

    Bi-coastal, when both are so much fun
    Tell me why do you have to pick, why do you have to pick
    Why do you have to pick one? Writer/s: DAVID W. FOSTER, PETER W. ALLEN, TOM KEANE
