lyrics

This city will chew you up and
this city will spit you out
sometimes it feels alright
somethings seem justified but
I knew I loved you when
this city open up it's hands

Last autumn I felt alive for
the first and second time
you told me stories of
smart things and then looked off
but I knew I loved you when
this city opened up it's hands

This city will pick you up and
this city will throw you down
and this city will screw you up and
this city will screw you now and then
sometimes it feels so hard
somewhere just seems so far away
probably improbably
possibly impossible but
I knew I loved you when
this city opened up again

Last night it took so long
just to find where your heart belongs
just to find something right
a perfect fit for a perfect night
I knew this love was mine
when I saw the glimmer in your eyes

This story's a parable too
the bright lights comparable to
your eyes that search and seek
your thighs the city streets
but I knew I loved you when
this city opened up again

This city will pick you up and
this city will throw you down
and this city will screw you up and
this city will screw you now and then
sometimes it feels so hard
somewhere just seems so far away
probably improbably
possibly impossible
but I knew I loved you when
this city opened up again

probably improbably
possibly impossible
but I knew I loved you when
this city opened up again
