I shot for the moon but I hit the stars,
Then I thought I would land ontop the city skyline,
But I hit the shoreline

I can't walk straight (I can't walk..),
But I never took a drink
I've never been the captain
but baby we're, baby we're about to sink!

I'm doing everything I can,
and I'm doing everything I could
I'm doing everything I can!

I shot for the moon but I hit the stars,
Then I thought I would land ontop the city skyline,
But I hit the shoreline
In Chicago, where we dream through our teeth and hearts
Well I've finally, finally found a new start

I got music running through my veins
Love on my wrist,
And dreams as big as skyscrapers
That tear apart these streets

Cause I was born to sleep on floors
From the windy city to the city of sin
I'll be living, I'll be dreaming,
I'll be living, I'll be dreaming,

(I'll be living, I'll be dreaming
I'll be living, I'll be dreaming)

I shot for the moon but I hit the stars,
Then I thought I would land ontop the city skyline,
But I hit the shoreline
In Chicago, where we dream through our teeth and hearts
Well I've finally, finally found a new start

I shot for the moon but I hit the stars,
Then I thought I would land ontop the city skyline,
But I hit the shoreline
In Chicago, where we dream through our teeth and hearts
Well I've finally found a new start

    General Commentnot only have i seen these guys live a whole bunch of times, theyve stayed at my house, signed my basement wall, been partially responsible for the TFKA curse that sens my dad to the hospital everytime i hang out with them. Yes its okay to be jealous of me i understand
    These guys are amazing, this song is great we listen to it everytime we go to chicago and everytime we leave chicago. Its a great road trip song. Go see them live its worth whatever drive you may have to make and even worth hospitalizing your father
