City Flower

City flower
Raised under street lights
Hothouse rose
Born in the shade
It could not hold you
The empire skyline
Could never keep you
From turning to flame

I was restless
Running from nothing
I built my foundation
On the shifting sands
And I was a pauper
At midnight and morning
Morning glory
You king me where I stand

Chorus:
You find me in the shadows
And the shade
Show me how to bloom
I promise I won’t fade
City flower
Wrapped around my heart
Like a daisy chain
No one can tear apart

The barroom lights
Are fine and they’re golden
The city bells
Ring soft in the night
But to be in your arms
All twined up and tangled
That’s the only thing
Can make me feel alright

Chorus
