Birdy – District Sleeps Alone Tonight lyrics
Smeared black ink... your face is ashen
And I'm barely listening to last demands
I'm staring at the asphalt wondering what's buried underneath
Where I am
Where I am

I'll wear my badge... a vinyl sticker with big block letters adherent to my
Chest
That tells your new friends I am a visitor here...
I am not permanent
And the only thing keeping me dry is
Where I am (You seem so out of context in this gaudy apartment complex)
Where I am (A stranger with your door key explaining that I am just
Visiting)
Where I am (And I am finally seeing why I was the one worth leaving)
(Why I was the one worth leaving)

D.C. sleeps alone tonight
D.C. sleeps alone tonight
Where I am (You seem so out of context in this gaudy apartment complex)
Where I am (A stranger with your door key explaining that I am just
Visiting)
Where I am (And I am finally seeing why I was the one worth leaving)
(Why I was the one worth leaving)

The district sleeps alone tonight after the bars turn out their lights
And leave the autos swerving into the loneliest evening
And I am finally seeing
Why I was the one worth leaving
Why I was the one worth leaving
Why I was the one worth leaving
Why I was the one worth leaving

    Don't leave those important to you because you will so regret it for the rest of your life, don't push them away. Make sure they are close to you because that one special person in your life means more then you know. They care about you so much and never want to see you hurt, however you are hurting that person! Please, please you know who this is to, know that I am here. I love you so stop this before you push so hard I won't come back. You need to make your relationships the most important things. Cherish them and never let them go, you don't know how lucky you are to have found that person! .

    It's a beauiful song by sung by the beautiful birdy. It's about making the right decisions in life and not leaving the ones close to you as the consequences are lonely. The people you love are the most important in your life and you love them despite their flaws because it doesn't matter, all that does is that you love them and you should cherish them or they will not be there for you anymore.
