I was wondering through Midtown when you caught my eye
I looked at people looking up at you
All the time I spent so close to you and now it's true
You're the wall but honey I'm the fly
I thought I knew all the sides of you

From this distance there are things that finally make some sense
I can see why this appeals to you
All the people looking up at you have no clue
We're as _?_ and confidence
I thought I knew all the sides of you

But I get it now
And I can't say that I'm surprised
Got it now
You skipped the race but won the prize
You're part of the skyline now

I was thumbing through a magazine mindlessly
When I caught you staring back at me
Until recently I got to see your face for free
Sleep was all it cost to take you home with me
When I knew all the sides of you

But I get it now
You gotta make the ends meat
I've got it now
Advancing to a calculated treat (?)
You're part of the skyline

Yeah I get it now
I guess I knew it all along
Got it now
And no one left who knows you're wrong
You're part of the skyline (part of the skyline)
Part of the skyline now

    I was wandering through Midtown when you caught my eye

    Where as I know that's the confidence (not sure about this one, might be that's some confidence?)

    You gotta make the ends meet

    Advancing to a calculated retreat


    absolutely adore this song! I think it's literally about New York City. Maybe a specific building, I dunno.
