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




We still sing




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




We always sing
