The New Cities – Lost In City Lights lyrics

I met you on a stormy weekend
You never meant to draw the line
I saw you once, you didn't smile
Thought you needed my advice
But didn't know it at the time

I called you in the dead of winter
You didn't even hold the line
I've seen it all, the great decline
One more troubled state of mine
What's so wrong? Why can't you even try?

Hear me out now, a thousand miles 'round
That the sound of strangers breaking new ground
It's the breakdown of a lifetime
Here we go now falling of the straight line
Lost in city lights

I know all about your little secrets
I've felt the chills and your regrets
I heard 'em all, yeah through the wall
While you never had a clue
And if you knew, what would you do?

Hear me out now, a thousand miles 'round
That the sound of strangers breaking new ground
It's the breakdown of a lifetime
Here we go now falling of the straight line

I'm dreaming, I'm dreaming, we're dreaming

Falling back in the days you were doing all right
If you're set in your ways then you fade out of sight
When at first it felt wrong it soon became right
Now the cracks on the wall were a map of your life
The addiction is back and it's heavy this time
Now you're talking to the voices through the wall
Will you make it this time?

Hear me out now, a thousand miles 'round
That the sound of strangers breaking new ground
It's the breakdown of a lifetime
Here we go now falling of the straight line

Cause I don't wanna know
That's the sound of strangers breaking new ground
Lost in city lights
Here we go now falling of the straight line
