Skyscrapers stoplights and bar fights spill into the street
I walk home at midnight I keep my eyes on my feet
Loneliness dark and deep in the city that doesn't sleep
No trace of your smile on the faces of strangers I meet

I stare out the window, lost in the space of my bed
The sounds from the sidewalk can't drown out the noise in my head
The view can't compare to your eyes, the city can't sing lullabies
All I hear is the echo of words that you said

When I see your face
I am in a place that feels like home

I had big city lights shining bright in my small town dream
I was blind with excitement, the future in high beam
I thought I was ready to fly
But I've been falling since we said goodbye
And the stars in the sky they are farther away than they seem
