Future Islands – City’s Face Lyrics

City’s Face Lyrics By Future Islands

All those years
Just a shadow
Of a ghost
Of a memory, at most

And how you strayed an arrow
Where you go
Where you been?
Where you came

This city I’m sick and tired
And wild
The city that I came to love
I’m leaving
Filled with paranoia inside
Trust left with the loss of my pride
I say, “So long”

It’s so strange, how a person can change a city’s face
A time and place
Who we know
And believe

I believed, for too long
What you did to me, wasn’t wrong
I grew to hate you
And this place too

This city, I’m sick and tired
Am I
The one that I forgot to love?
I’m losing
Filled with paranoia inside
Trust left with the loss of my pride
I say, “So long”

It’s so strange, how a person can change a city’s face
A person can change, a person can change a city’s face
And the strangers I came to know
They’re all strange now
All the strangers I came to know
They’re all strange now
Strange now
Strange now
It’s strange
