The Crookes – City Of Lights lyrics

Eyes were wide, they swallowed up the night.
Your heart collapsed beneath the city lights.
You lay breathless, lifeless, cold to the touch
Of my cheek.

You ripped your dress. It set my heart alight.
Pupils bled until they met the whites.
Hearts so cold (and broken) on the floor...
... Made me want you more.

Then she hears that northern soul and dances to 50's rock'n'roll.
Come summertime her heart still beats a pace behind.

Then she hears that northern soul and dances to 50's rock'n'roll.
Come summertime her heart still beats a pace behind.

"Take me where there's music. I love to dance"
All that lies between us is circumstance.
Now I feel breathless, reckless, it twists my insides to see that skyline.

Then she hears that northern soul and dances to 50's rock'n'roll.
Come summertime her heart still beats a pace behind.
