I drop my bags down in their hull, I'm home
I'm suspended in this moment alone
In this old house that I barely even know now at all
I hose the leaves off of my car, she still starts
As I'm scrolling through the names in your phone
In this old town, it's you I've missed the most

Cause you light the city up
We come alive as your faces light our streets
And these roads seem endless
But for now, we're coming home

I couldn't sleep and I couldn't find a sane mind
To explain the way that I feel and why I can't sit still
Well I can barely even pen out this line
Well that's a side effect of freedom
But I won't grow cold
If left to chance, from where I stand
I won't be letting go

Cause you light the city up
We come alive as your faces light our streets
And these roads seem endless
But for now, we're coming home

Cause you light the city up
We come alive as your faces light our streets
And these roads seem endless
But for now, we're coming home

To ride with you up and down these blocks
Young and unknowing of what's in front of us
And these lies we chose, oh baby they chose us
And decide where we go, but they won't change us
Cause we're coming home

Cause you light the city up
We come alive as your faces light our streets
And these roads seem endless
But for now, we're coming home

Cause you light the city up
We come alive as your faces light our streets
Cause you light the city up
For now, we're coming home
