Live it up, live it up
Or just come back home
Yeah, cause these city lights
Are too much for you alone
But San Francisco sounds quite lovely
And so I'll just wait for your call
I promise, I promise and wholly lonely


So stay awake, and stay
I try and go, but your game
It waits for me and you, love
So cover up for the rain
You see way too much safety
Cause I don't stand a chance
Any longer than you do my friend
Cause we should know best
Now that you're gone


Cause I can't breathe
With these words on my tongue
But San Francisco still sounds lovely
Cause he swears he still loves you
He still loves you
Come, lonely


So stay awake, and stay
I try and go, but your game
It waits for me and you, love
So cover up for the rain
You see way too much safety
Cause I don't stand a chance
Any longer than you do my friend
But you're still keeping me sane


It's still in the way and I think
That nobody's watching
Yeah, nobody's watching me and
It's still in the way that I think
Cause nobody's watching
Yeah, nobody's watching me and
It's still in the way that I think
Cause nobody's watching
Yeah, nobody's watching


The rain
You see way too much safety
Cause I don't stand a chance
Any longer than you do my friend
But you're still keeping me sane


The rain
You see way too much safety
Cause I don't stand a chance
Any longer than you do my friend
But you're still keeping me sane
