City of Ghosts Preview

lyrics

1. Hide
Do you remember how it started
When you told me that we’d never give in
Remember how it caught us and we fought it
But we lost in the end

Now I’m living in the future
Looking back to when you were my friend
Now I’m living in the mirror
Looking back at all the time that we spent

We cannot hide inside
We cannot hide in our minds


2. City of Ghosts
Please forgive me if I’m feeling low
I’ve been living in a city of ghosts
I’ve been sleeping underneath my bed
I count the cost and hold my breath

I keep searching for a city of gold
If I found it would I even know
An affliction of the fortunate sons
Never knowing what we really want

Please excuse me if I’ve let you down
Heaven help me if I had my doubts
An affliction of the fortunate girls
Keep searching for the heart of the world

I’ve been dreaming of a city of gold
If I lived there would I even know
If I lived there would it be enough
It makes you wonder what you really love


3. Borderline
I remember when we met
It was a feeling I can't forget
When I looked in your eyes
But why did you pretend it was okay
Only to turn around and walk away
So far away

Borderline
but you're feeling fine fine fine
We're running out of time
But you keep running through my mind

I've read between the lines
And I heard the story a thousand times
Love lives and love dies
Once we used to run together in the rain
And now you've gone and put out the flame
And I'm left with the pain

Borderline
but you're feeling fine fine fine
We're running out of time
But you keep running through my mind


4. Hush
Concrete and the nights
Insomnia and lights
City dream

Hush and let it go
A monument of stone
Let it breathe

It’d be a nice time for you
To come around and take me away

Cover it with snow
A blanket for the streets
Let the city sleep

Calmer when you’re cold
Rest and let it breathe
Tired from the heat

It’d be a nice time for you
To come around and take me away

This is the right time for you
To come around and take me away
