Owl City – Metropolis lyrics

Oh oh, I can't even take it in.
Oh oh, I can't even take it in.
Oh oh, I left my heart in Metropolis.

So far apart, I check that the coast was clear,
I feel like a post card, I wish you were here.
Subway through the dark, tearing through the park.
Taxi down the street, the avenue's at my feet
Don't matter much to me what it is that I do, as long as I'm coming home
With you.

Oh oh oh, as far as I can see,
You're the only one, the only one who can get to me.
Like a high jacked plane, or a runaway train,
Or a speeding bullet, there's no stopping me!
I left my heart in Metropolis!

A thousand miles feels like a million years,
Like hundreds of postcards that say I wish you were here!
Airplane through the sky, grey all racing by,
Air bike on the beach, sailboat on the sea,
Don't matter much to me what it is that I do, as long as I'm coming home
With you.

Oh oh oh, as far as I can see,
You're the only one, the only one who can get to me.
Like a high jacked plane, or a runaway train,
Or a speeding bullet, there's no stopping me!
I left my heart in Metropolis!
I left my heart in Metropolis!

Like a high jacked plane, or a runaway train,
Or a speeding bullet, there's no stopping me!
I left my heart in Metropolis!
I left my heart in Metropolis!
I left my heart in Metropolis!
I left my heart in Metropolis!

Oh oh, I can't even take it in.
Oh oh, I can't even take it in.
Oh oh, I can't even take it in.
Oh oh, I left my heart in Metropolis.
