i think i might move from the city
to get away from everyone
lady we should move from the city
to get away from everyone

why does your love go numb?
theres poison in your blood
wash out your heart
and set your spirit free
dont let your love go numb

troubled man shake off your worries
or you just might lose your mind
blackbird singing in the country
a city lullaby

why does your love go numb?
theres poison in your blood
wash out your heart
and set your spirit free
dont let your love go numb

i thought i might move from the city
o' lady butterfly

    General CommentI cannot believe that of all the songs The Anniversary have written, this one has no comments on it. It's definitely my favorite song.

    The chorus and the verses seem distant from one another, but I get that a lot from their songs. The verses seem to be pretty self explanitory. The chorus, to me at least, sounds like it's about a loved one abusing painkillers.

    Either way, this song is outstanding.
