lyrics

Skip the subway, hail a taxi
take the BQE right down, you know the drill
Friday night and things are happening
Hat, gloves, sweater get right at me

But everywhere we turn it's like a living Urban Outfitters ad
Just an observation - I don’t know or really care if it's good or bad

It's as if you were just a beacon in a river that I couldn’t have
Now you've got cracks and fault lines in your pavement but I could be fine with that

I was in love with you
I was in love with you

When we were standing on the roof
Overlooking our neighborhood
I could tell you were nervous
From the way that you stood
We were lookin at the houses and the lights and the cars
I was only watching you
I know you knew!

But you kept climbing higher

Here above the wires I will hang my heart
From the laces of your shoes
I will play my part
And promise not to move - I will hang very still

Aren’t they moments like these that you see in your head
Stop writing them down take me to bed
Its been a long time I’ve waited to be alone with you

It's as if you were just a beacon in a river that I couldn’t have
Now you've got cracks and fault lines in the pavement but I could be fine with that

I was in love with you
I was in love with you

I see your spire through the trees
The twisted metal in the leaves
There's thunder in this very need
There’s something waking up in me

I know that you’ll appreciate
your power to resuscitate
a soul that couldn’t run the race
and now I’m staring in the face or a facade
is it a place or a mirage
I don't care
just put me there and take my clothes but don't tell god

Off the map and into the stadium
Gladiators swingin like they famous

You were just a beacon in a river that I couldn't have
Now you've got cracks and fault lines in the pavement
But I could be fine with that
