Your paintings are bright
Your paintings are bright
They'll wake you at night
They'll take you at night
To a place where you'll see
A place where you'll see
Where you never met me
You've never been sure
You're never quite sure
What you are looking for
What you are looking for
But you know when it's gone
You'll know when it's gone
When your life feels too long

The city has ways
Of wearing us down
The city has ways
Of stealing our crown

Well I have these thoughts
I've got these these thoughts
But I think they're alone
Least I think they're alone
Won't you back me up?
Oh won't you back me up?
Or I'm not giving up
You've never been sure
You're still not quite sure
What you are looking for
What you are looking for
But you'll know when it's gone
Yeah you know when it's gone
When your life feels too long

The city has ways
Of wearing us down
The city has ways
Of stealing our crown

To a place where you'll see
A place where you see
Where you never met me
To a place where you'll see
A place where you see
Where you never met me

The city has ways
Of wearing us down
The city has ways
Of stealing our crown

The city swallowed you whole
