the city was too late for us
i got there and you wanted to get away
the city was too great for us
we slept through the blue skies on the clouds on the duvet
and the streets are all too straight for us
a parade of nobility seen from above
the city is to blame for us
and what was our love

what was

the city makes you make a fuss
there's places to meet up under the light
the city's got its stake in us
it's keeping receipts of our hello(w)'s and our hi(gh)'s
and everything is made of dust
from the box of the comics to the little street mice
the city takes so long to get quiet and lust
wasn't sleeping that night

before we knew it, we knew it was right
before we blew it, i didn't know that we might
and now it's somebody's story and i'm not sorry that it's mine
before we knew it we were out of time

the city says "oh if i could"
well the rain-soaked battered view makes you not sure
am i walking in your neighborhood?
i was just driving by the rain down the streets where we once were
and even though it's way too late
time seems to have stopped still where we stood
you ran back and then you're somewhere in the city,
you're somewhere in the city and i hope you're good
