We stayed up late for the weekdays, but it was the workplace
That takes it's toll, takes it's toll on you
We'll run the city, run the city while we're still young
I'm so good at running round with no reason
Yeah, you're looking perfect, the way that the light hits, yeah, yeah
Stay in the moment now

I played the wolf, and left it to the sheep to figure out
You're speaking all the right words, with all the right words
Well I must say, it's quite impressing (it's quite impressing)

I'm not the one that you live with, so I must confess that
I made a hit, made a hitlist
We're thinking, overthinking, years, thinking coastal
But for now, I got some money for the hotels
Yeah, you're looking perfect, the way that the light hits, yeah, yeah
Just stay in the moment now

I played the wolf, and left it to the sheep to figure out
You're speaking all the right words, with all the right words
Well I must say, it's quite impressing (it's quite impressing)

Read all about it in papers, yeah
They cut up that shit up like a razor, so what
Yeah, I know you got all of the best plans so
Just string them up across the oceans

So I guess I

I played the wolf, and left it to the sheep to figure out
You're speaking all the right words, with all the right words
Well I must say, it's quite impressing (it's quite impressing)

We'll run the city, run the city while we're still young
I'm so good at running round with no reason

    General CommentIn general,
    I lov this song.
    Sings about how to be young is just being viral and experiencing a nondescript passion. Meaning, a fluid teenage angst for the mystery.

    Coastal states, girls, hipsters, just living for living sake.

    i am down.
