Big city calling, I hear the echo outside
There's something so frightening in the deep western sky
I wish it was simple saying goodbye
Comfort me later, for now let me cry

Will cracks in the pavement bring me some sort of truth
Will they find some way to remind me of you
Will the train running eastbound help me remember my part
Will the wish for release fill the holes in my heart
The sky filled with phantoms in their towers of light
And lovers so restless give themselves to the night
If you cut me wide open and you looked deep inside
Would you find something deeper than this worrying mind?

This room is too empty and these streets are too wide
And I don't have the patience for this pain to subside
So I'm off to the land of litter and lights
Where rats in the tunnels keep the ghosts up all night
I'll learn the streets slowly, maybe find someone new
We'll drink up the sunrise and wake up with the moon
But I'm not so stupid, I'm not such a fool
To think that I'll stop
Stop thinking of you

I'm not so stupid, I'm not such a fool
To think that I'll stop
Stop thinking of you
