Matt Skiba – The City That Day lyrics

Saw you standing there holding my heart
Too many drinks pulled the words apart
But I got your name remembered it
Dumbfounded I'm dumb as shit

I'm just glad that I went
To the city that day

Saw you standing there all alone
For some reason you were holding two coats
I asked you 'do you need a hand? '
You said 'No thanks, I've got other plans'

I'm just glad that I went
To the city that day

And I saw him wake up on the sidewalk
His next drink was the topic of talk
He said 'give me something quick and sweet
My whole life I've lived on the street'

I'm just glad that I went

To the city that day [x4]
