Sondre Lerche – Coliseum Town lyrics

Coliseum town
Not a living soul around
I go stumbling cobbled streets with the map you drew on me
And I can't decide
Did you leave or ever arrive?
I've been known to make things up
Now I'm talking to my cup
What's the chance of you returning?

Coliseum town, should I wait around?
Maybe I'm mistaken this dream's taken who put these thoughts in my head?
I'd better put this to bed When I wake from dream inside a dream

To divert my mind
I try to make another love song rhyme but it's harder than it seemed to
Describe what I just dreamed
Coliseum town
Tell me if I'm out of line
I may just have had too much or just never quite enough
Now the cobblestone are spinning
Am I singing

Coliseum town, should I wait around?
Maybe I'm mistaken
This dream's taken
The bartender showed me the door I fell asleep on your floor in another
Dream inside a dream
