Magnolia Electric Co – Leave The City lyrics

It broke my heart to leave the city
I mean it broke what wasn't
Broken in there already
But all my great reasons
For leavin' now I can't think of any
It's true was a hard time
That I come through
And I'm still thankful for the blues

Half my life spent on a highway
Half my life I didn't choose
I have seen the north star
Shining in the freightyard
And I knew it was a hard time
But it came through
It made him thankful for the blues

It broke my heart to know you waiting
I had so many things to do
It's true as far as a lot of stuff
You could have had a little better luck
But with you I'm not givin' up
Tonight I'm not givin' up
