"The City Never Sleeps" as written by and Pugh/pepper/roberts/sanders/lee....
I walk around
Its 10 past midnight here and I'm moving
to the sounds of people drowning out their lives
This little voice that says "hey, we should settle down" but we never listen we say, to each other, just wait'll they see me now...

I'm I'm feelin' so alive Don't you wish it was like this every night The city never sleeps for you and I, Let's fly away this time and get on with our lives, but don't look down, you'll never feel your feet touch the ground.

If its all the same I'd rather never leave. It feels too good to hear the sounds and see the sights on Main St. Cause now I see millions of people living out their lives and they all came from no where and they all say just wait'll they see me now...

I'm I'm feelin' so alive Don't you wish it was like this every night The city never sleeps for you and I, Let's fly away this time and get on with our lives, but don't look down, you'll never feel your feet touch the...

Now I'm I'm feelin' so alive Don't you wish it was like this every night The city never sleeps for you and I, Let's fly away this time and get on with our lives, but don't look down, you'll never feel your feet touch the ground...

They'll never touch the ground

    General Commenthmm.. i imagined my boyfriend and i in this song.
    i felt like this was us, because whenever i'm with him i feel like i'm being lifted high.. and i can't touch the ground, And i wish i could be with him all the time...
    could that be it?? A relationship song? Doubt it but hey i dunno.

    General CommentThis song reminds of summer like none other. It's like, theres not cares at all in the world so theyre just out doing whatever they want, all night, every night. Theyre happy with each other and with how life is right that second, and they dont want it to ever end.

    General CommentThis song is basically describing that awesome feeling, that you and either your significant other or your best friend are just invisible and on top of the world. This is definitely one of my favorite songs by them, their vocalist honestly (no pun intended) is one of the best things to happen to modern rock in many years, incredible young band. Cant wait to see them on May 2nd in Greenville, SC
