The Lumineers – Life In The City Lyrics

Life In The City by The Lumineers


And if the city’s skyscrapers rise
Over this island
Would you be glad to see Manhattan for once
I knew the dream, it died
JMZ line, Myrtle and Broadway
But I’d be glad to see Manhattan for once

Oh, living life in the city
Oh, it will ver be pretty, oh
Oh, we can plan if we make it
Oh, we won’t let ’em
They won’t take it from me, no, oh

And if you leave
Don’t leave me all alone
Cause I’ll be scared, I’ll be naked
I’ll be cold
And I miss my dad
Cleopatra, sitting on the phone
So take me back
Off these streets
And we’ll never be apart
Together from the start
Never, never, falling back alone

Oh, living life in the city
Oh, it will ver be pretty, oh
Oh, we can plan if we make it
Oh, we won’t let ’em
They won’t take it from me, no, oh

And if the sun don’t shine on me today
And if the subway’s flood, bridges break
Will you just lay down and dig your grave
Or will you rail against the dying day
