and i was feeling dirty
when i washed up in the rain
i missed the 7:20, oh
but i caught another train at 8
cuz i was sleeping with your bedroom walls
asking them all the things you told me
there are lies, they replied,
don't mean a thing
don't mean a thing

in my apartment in the city
i always stay out late
always burning out the window
had stars above the lake
i breathe out chicago
like it's the last thing in my lungs
well it's never love if it's a girl that you're giving up
it's never love if it's a girl that you're giving up

so what you think about that one?
you got a lot to lose now
with a baby on the way
are you gonna give him my name?
you could have found some better taste
instead of slumming with those downtown guys
you got diamond eyes for the way they say your name
and i've always tried
where you lie is where i wanna be

in my apartment in the city
i always stay out late
always burning out the window
had the stars above the lake
i breathe out chicago
like it's the last thing in my lungs
well it's never love if it's a girl that you're giving up
it's never love if it's a girl that you're giving up

you're my apartment in the city
you always stay out late
always burning, burning, burning out that fucking window, baby
and i breathe, and you breathe what you see what you need
it's never love if it's a girl that you're giving up
it's never love, never love, if it's a girl that you're giving up
it's never love if it's a girl, girl that you're giving up
