silhouette your shape
like a skyline makes
all the people stare
at your red red hair
she does the best she can
the best she can

murder and mystery
she likes to disagree
i see her angel wings
i see a million things
i’ll never understand
understand

you got the right thing to say but you’re a minute too late
you need a light and a map just to try and navigate
you see her every single day but you’re talking to a stranger

she’s like a city
she’s full of real dark places
spend all your life and never
see all her faces
crazy as cincinnati
suddenly cruel and caddy
she’s got your soul delivered
you swim that river running round
she likes to burn her bridges down

secrets and fantasies
you only wish you’d see
sometimes she thinks she wants
to own a restaurant
the trees are green and brown
they’re green and brown

summer day ice cream
we feed a homeless dream
we see the sun still shines
on a blacktop mind
you wore a long white gown
a long white gown

you got the right thing to say but you’re a minute too late
you need a light and a map just to try and navigate
you see her every single day but you’re talking to a stranger

she’s like a city
she’s full of real dark places
spend all your life and never
see all her faces
crazy as cincinnati
suddenly cruel and caddy
she’s got your soul delivered
you swim that river running round
she likes to burn her bridges down
she’s like a city

i
i search these sidewalks
will a trace
of you lead me home
of you lead me home
will it lead me home?

she’s like a city
she’s full of real dark places
spend all your life and never
see all her faces
crazy as cincinnati
suddenly cruel and caddy
she’s got your soul delivered
you swim that river running round
she’s full of real dark
she’s full of real dark
she’s full of real dark places
she’s full of real dark
she’s full of real dark
she’s full of real dark places
