Taken away by the way you look
But instead took grip of every hand you shook
That stretched out so long, while we stand so tall
But forgive us now, if instead we all
Tell the tall tale wrong
Your arms held out long
Tell the tall tale wrong

Well, condescendingly, you would've sung to me
The bitter-sweet song of a lonely bee
What have we done wrong?

I never thought you would've lasted this long
Do you wanna get out of here tonight?
Drive the town and leave our thoughts behind
As dawn breaks we'll be watching over city lights (x2)
We'll be watching over city lights
We'll be watching over city lights

Now we're going on faking like we don't know
What we've got here isn't the typical
Nothing more than a superficial
Rewind slowly so you don't forget it all

Well, condescendingly, you would've sung to me
The bitter-sweet song of a lonely bee
What have we done wrong?

I never thought you would've lasted this long
Do you wanna get out of here tonight?
Drive the town and leave our thoughts behind
As dawn breaks we'll be watching over city lights (x2)

Your arms they held out long
Reaching for my own
Will my hands hold you strong?
I'm scared I'll never know (x2)

I never thought you would've lasted this long
Do you wanna get out of here tonight?
Drive the town and leave our thoughts behind
As dawn breaks we'll be watching over city lights (x2)

We'll be watching over city lights
We'll be watching over city lights
We'll be watching over city lights
We'll be watching over city lights
