"In This City" as written by Michael Jarvis, Simon Katz and Sam Martin....
You came in to my life
You cannot separate yourself
You came in to my life
You cannot separate yourself

[Chorus: x2]
And I found that round here
In this city
That I won't disappear
In this city
I got nothing to fear
In this city,
In this city

Close those doors
Close those doors now
Now, now, just keep em open
Keep em open
Yea, keep em open
I'll keep on, keep keep on going
Taking it in so, so heavy
Take it easy son, this ain't so deadly
Got keep on, gotta go on, gotta go on
Take it all with what we've done
Gotta push it push it push it
To the top of the building
Even when no one is feeling
It might bother you
Don't let it
If these people just don't get it
They can't express it
They won't accept it
She said it's okay that they may never give you that credit.

[Chorus: x2]

I've been down here
Down these roads
People pass through
Some stay some go
Standing here broke
Not a penny to my name
But she says she loves me all the same
I try my best
And you do to
And all you want is something you can move to
Everybody's gotta get their kicks somewhere
Everybody gotta fit in somewhere
There's, an open road
And I'm traveling down
Don't know where to go
But I lock and load
Shoot that sky till the moon explode
Moon explode
Now we're laying in a field
White flowers on our backs
Talking bout home
But we can't go back
I guess that's why we left
So we could take a step
Keep moving and forget the rest.

You came in to my life
You cannot separate yourself
You came in to my life
You cannot separate yourself

[Chorus: x2]

And I found that round here
In this city
That I won't disappear
In this city
I got nothing to fear
In this city

    General Commenti think this song is about leaving somewhere because of a regret or something you did
    "Got keep on, gotta go on, gotta go on, Take it all with what we’ve done" and in this new place some people are asses and will never understand you but you just have to ignore them.
    "it might bother you, don't let it, if these people just don't get it"

    But you have this girl who loves you so it's okay " you came in to my life " and theres nothing to fear cos this place is just like home.

    General Commenthe's explaining the concept of transience to his current girl. she has no exit strategy "you cannot separate yourself" and she is hanging on ... he tells her she should "keep the doors open" - he knows this because he's "been down these roads" before. he was broke and even though his previous lover told him she loved him "Not a penny to my name.But she says she loves me all the same" they were looking for something different. he's confident that his presence "In this city" has staying power - perhaps he feels the band has "made it" and he seems at a critical junction point in the relationship "Theres, an open road. And I�m traveling down. Don�t know where to go" Ironically it sounds like the girl is also a transient of sorts too "I guess that�s why we left." both looking for bigger and better things "So we could take a step" and forget the past of their homes "Keep moving and forget the rest."
