New Amsterdams – Hughes lyrics

Love is a long shot
Love is a bird in hand
When this stops
We'll be laughing
Sing our songs
Though they're barely heard

You be the prom queen
I'll be the malcontent
In this scene
Just pretend
Nobody cares about
Social standing

Hughes you knew me
You promise me maybe that
Nobody talks to me
I'm all alone

People are misplaced
People are full of shit
In this place
I'm over it
I've got a right mind
To call it in

Cause even the sun stays
Even the words turn good
In the heat wave
It's understood
Nobody gives a damn for their neighbor

Hughes you know me
Will promise maybe later
Nobody talks to me
I'm all alone

You've had a bad year, you've got a place to stay
And it's clear, you're on your way
I won't tell your friends a thing
