There was once a city dream
But there weren't any stars to be seen
So I'll move back to the country
Where things didn't seem so busy
Then there was you it suprised me

Took a train across the state
With a song I wanted to play
With the words I wanted to say
They'll just be left for another day
But I feel asleep on the way

If you say no, I'll go my way
If you say yes, I will stay
But for tonight I'll stay awake
I just want to hear what you have to say

Never thought there'd be a girl
That could consume my world
That'd stay around, cause a swirl
Like the paint within a mural
Just past the township sunset hill
I'd like to show you my world

You picked me up off the floor
Not knowing exactly who you were
But as for you, I'm an open door
Haven't opened like this before
This train makes me wonder if I could be yours?

Say no I'll go my way
Say yes and I will stay
As for tonight I'll stay awake
I just want to hear what you'd have to say

I once had a city dream
That one day you'd be with me
In an old house in the country
But I don't know who you are
And I'm sure your not to far
Just stay exactly who you are.

Say no I'll go my way
Say yes and I will stay
As for tonight I'll stay awake
I just want to hear what you'd have to say
I just want to hear what you would have to say
