"City Girl" as written by and Tegan Quin Sara Quin....
I cried so hard that you pushed me further away
I screamed so loud you called the police on me
I got so city girl on you
I get so sad
That sad gets to be
So scared that all my feelings
They up and leave me
I got so city girl on you
I go so crazy I
Don't know what to do
Ooh, ooh
I look so long
I get obvious
I look so hard
I look obvious
I work so much
I miss the sun shine away
I sleep so little
Watch the stars fade into day
I get so city girl on you
I go so crazy I
Don't know what to do
Ooh, ooh
I get uncertain
Promise I'll be perfect from now on
But all my promises
They're out the window once you're gone
You pack your bags
You say I love you but I cannot stay
So I started smoking
Thought the signals
Would scare your wolves away
I got so city girl on you
I went so crazy I
Didn't know what to do
I got so city girl on you
I went so crazy I
Didn't know what to do
Ooh, ooh
I cry so hard that you push me
Further away
I scream so loud you call the
Police on me
You pack your bags
You say I love you but I cannot stay
So I started smoking
Thought the signals
Would scare your wolves away
I got so city girl on you
I went so crazy I
Didn't know what to do
I got so city girl on you
I went so crazy I
Didn't know what to do
Ooh

    General Commentnotice how these comments turned away from the song and onto their sexuality? why does it matter if they're both lesbians or whether they sing about guys or girls? its about the songs

    Song MeaningOkay, this song is NOT about any of Tegan's relationships. She said, here > youtube.com/… < that this song is about Sara, when she moved to Montreal.
    End of the discussion (years ago, but it's ok...).

    General Commentno, they both are so it's a safe bet it's about two girls.

    General CommentThey are sisters. They are both lesbians, though not with each other. It is directly cited on a few of their websites.

    futurelookslike is correct. the song is about Tegan's break up with Julia.

    General CommentOMG, you people are completely clueless.. you need to get out more often.

    Staying on subject. This song is every fight my girl and I have over had. Amazing how someone can write from personal experience and sing my life right back to me.

    General CommentWhy does it necesarilly have to be a girl and a guy? actually, given that T+S are lesbians, it'd make more sense for it to be a girl and a girl...

    General Commentcorrection, one is a lesbian. but you are correct, given this fact, it's not always about girl&boy relations.
    none the less, it's just about a girl who overreacts and is over dramatic in a relationship.
