Sylvan Esso – Rooftop Dancing Lyrics

Rooftop Dancing By Sylvan Esso

Concrete, concrete
Shining everywhere
Moonlight’s bright
And the kids don’t care.
Meet me at the streetlight
Gonna take you there.
Take you rooftop dancing.

Slo-mo throwing my body in the air-
Making the jump from ledge to ledge
Long hair flying
We’re out of breath.
We’re rooftop dancing.

Look at-look at-look at-
I can see everything
Babies double dutching
Singing their names
Counting off time
Doing their thing.

Sunlight beaming out over the bridge
We’re all running, outrunning death
Summertime breaking but we’re chasing it
Forever rooftop dancing

Concrete, concrete
Shining everywhere
Moonlight’s bright
And the kids don’t care.
Meet me at the streetlight
Gonna take you there.
Take you rooftop dancing.

Rooftop dancing
I’ll take you rooftop dancing.
