She won't let me go,
Don't put me down,
I've seen the scenes and I've been around.

These city lies,
The bullshit smiles,
The inside jokes and the changing style.

But when I'm here,
I leave behind,
What I don't need
'Cause everytime I walk these streets I know they're mine.

It's just another day,
Living here this way,
Nothing ever troubles me,
And I say, "Lalalaa lalalaala, Lalalaa lalalaala la,
Everything's ok."

Oh these walls they should talk,
Yeah, feels good just to walk,
These streets of nowhere,
These streets of nowhere.

Grey clouds up above her,
But you still gotta love,
These streets of nowhere,
These streets of nowhere.

Your faded signs,
Your dirty crime,
Your endless jokes that go on for miles

Your errant daughter,
Wants her water,
You wouldn't have a word said against her.

But I agree,
The factories,
The shopping carts sing a symphony,
That sounds like home to me.

It's just another day,
Living here this way,
Nothing ever troubles me,
And I say, "Lalalaa lalalaala, Lalalaa lalalaala la,
Everything's ok."

Oh these walls they should talk,
Yeah, feels good just to walk,
These streets of nowhere,
These streets of nowhere.

Grey clouds up above her,
But she's still gotta love,
These streets of nowhere,
These streets of nowhere.

Oooooooooooo,
Oooooooooooo.

It's just another day,
Living here this way,
Nothing ever troubles me,
And I say, "Lalalaa lalalaala, Lalalaa lalalaala la,
Everything will be okay."

These streets of nowhere!

Oh these walls they should talk,
Yeah, feels good just to walk,
These streets of nowhere,
These streets of nowhere.

Grey clouds up above her,
But she's still gotta love,
These streets of nowhere,
These streets of nowhere.

    General CommentI am not sure about the second part of the chorus, I think it sounds like:

    "Grey clouds up above her,
    But you still gotta love,
    These streets of nowhere,
    These streets of nowhere."

    Or something similar.

    Song MeaningShe won't let me go,

    These city lies,
    The bullshit smiles,
    The inside jokes and the changing style.
    (he is trapped in love of a girl, he doesn't want criticism. he already been with a lot of girls and tried everything)

    But when I'm here,
    I leave behind,
    What I don't need
    'Cause everytime I walk these streets I know they're mine.
    It's just another day,

    (but when he is with that girl, he doesn't care about anything else, he has got everything he needs)
    Oh these walls they should talk,
    Yeah, feels good just to walk,
    These streets of nowhere,
    These streets of nowhere.
    (words about how good is to be with her)

    Grey clouds up above her,
    But you still gotta love,
    These streets of nowhere,
    These streets of nowhere.
    (no matter what does the girl do or what's up with her etc. he loves her)

    Your faded signs,
    Your dirty crime,
    Your endless jokes that go on for miles
    Your errant daughter,
    Wants her water,
    You wouldn't have a word said against her.
    (details about the girl, he knows everything about her, no matter if these are good or bad, he still loves her)

    But I agree,
    The factories,
    The shopping carts sing a symphony,
    That sounds like home to me.
    (even the bad things about the girl makes him loves her)

    General CommentI think it is about their home town rather than a girl.
