The 1975 – The City lyrics
Don’t call it a fight when you know it’s a war.
With nothing but your t-shirt on.
And go sit on the bed ’cause I know that you want to.
You got pretty eyes, but I know you’re wrong.

And don’t call it a spade if it isn’t a spade.
And go lie on the floor if you want.
The first bit of advice that you gave me that I liked was they’re too strong, too strong.
Get in the shower if it all goes wrong.

Yeah you wanna find love then you know where the city is [x4]

Yeah counting cards was the best job he ever had.
Cleaning up.
He got good with his 42s and his 22s
.
That community service was the best job he ever had.
Cleaning up
.
He got sick on the floor and his shoes.

Oh and she said it’s your birthday,
Are you feeling alright
?
The next one’s the md.
You’ll be feeling just fine
.
Your brother is just sat there,
You said he felt snide
.
You hope that that boy will be alright.

Yeah you wanna find love then you know where the city is [x4]

Yeah well she said it’s your birthday,
Are you feeling alright?
The next one’s the md.
You’ll be feeling just fine.
Your brother is just sat there,
You said he felt snide.
You hope that that boy will be alright.

Yeah you wanna find love then you know where the city is [x4]
