Danko Jones – City Streets lyrics

I've been feeling this too long
When you leave it all goes wrong
The only thing I know is it isn't right

Busy streets have lost their rush
Buildings towered turned to dust
Like everything just disappeared in the night

It's when I walk these city streets I realize the time that just went by
(Don't you know)
Like an old friend I hardly know now that I've been away for all this time

I was hoping this would pass
But once it's here, it's here to last
I wish it could just all remain the same

I'm a stranger when I'm home
'Cause all alone is all I know
That's what happens when you go astray

It's when I walk these city streets I realize the time that just went by
(That just went by)
Like an old friend I hardly know now that I've been away for all this time

I know I've made my bed
Sad thoughts are in my head
Barely holding back the tears
But when I watch the living dead
Wake up and break their bread
I know it's not for me

It's when I walk these city streets I realize the time that just went by
(Don't you know)
Like an old friend I hardly know now that I've been away for all this time

Oohhh oohhh ooohhh
Oooohhh ooohhh ooohhh

You're on your own/ you have to hold/ onto what you/ feel's rightly yours
Don't let anyone tell you it ain't worth the time
(Repeat)
