The City That Never Sleeps Lyrics

The City That Never Sleeps - The Wild

But I left my girl in vacation land

 

Now Virginia's barns burn

 

Back road memories red

Into my skin Like the southern sun

 

I left the trees for the towers

The woods for the wealth

The streams for the streets

My friends for myself

It was a bad f**king idea

 

We wait for sing

 

Ohh

 

We still sing

 

Ohh

 

I learned it I lived it

And now I'm gonna leave

But I won't regret it

It's just that New York City is not my friend

 

I just wanna go somewhere

Where I can rest my head

Where the streets are on fire

Not just smoldering

Somewhere like Atlanta

 

Well the streets aren't on fire just yet

But were lighting a motherf**king match

 

It wouldn't sink in

 

And so I tried

But everything that was real

Just squeezed out the side

When I closed my eyes real tight

 

I'm in the city that never sleeps

 

And I'm f**king tired

 

All of the colors that rained down

From the sky might as well have been explosions

On the inside

That night before the fourth of July

By the naval yard on the New Hampshire side

 

Jason played in the park

While I fumbled on my acoustic guitar

 

Behind a red door

 

We both sing

 

Ohh

 

We always sing

 

Ohh
