She wears a white dress
She sees the light and it's saying "come back"
She's out the door, but hasn't left yet
And I start believing her when she says that the city's gonna save her
Love...
Don't leave her
I know just what she's lookin' for
Oh, but all she knows is a picture that keeps fading on
But, I can't let her go... that's why I'm telling her

CHORUS

I wanna love you more
Than all of the things you wanted
Than all of the things you're not
And you want to have it all
But you've found it in the city, but the city doesn't talk

Oh...

She wears a gold cross
She sheds her skin, but it never comes off
She hears the angels out on the street tonight as she walks right by
Oh, they sing so softly
They sing, "Oh whoa whoa whoa, love's right behind you... oh, whoa"

CHORUS

I wanna love you more
Than all of the things you wanted
Than all of the things you're not
And you want to have it all
But you've found it in the city, but the city doesn't talk

Than all of the things you wanted...
Than all of the things you've got
But you've found it in the city, but the city doesn't talk

Oh whoa, oh whoa, oh whoa...

[BRIDGE]

Oh, she floats off to a crowded room
She remembers the rows and rows of houses
And the streetlights going on
That's why I'm telling her

CHORUS

I wanna love you more
Than all of the things you wanted
Than all of the things you're not
And you wanna have it all
But you've found it in the city, but the city doesn't talk

I wanna love you more
Than all of the things you wanted
Than all of the things you've got
And you wanna have it all
But you've found it in the city, but the city doesn't talk

Oh whoa, oh whoa, oh whoa...
Loves right behind you...
