lyrics

you spend your free time downtown
but i live downtown
and the magic is gone for me
the lights will be shining
they're big and bright and
things aren't easy to see

like my friends and our drinks
i'm too blind to see
that I'll miss them when I'm gone

what won't you do for me
oh, my city
may I never really know

in the autumn I fall in love
with the chill in my bones
and the taste of the air
on these late nights alone
isn't it funny how
getting closer to death
is what makes us feel alive

with my friends and our drinks
I'll be to drunk to see
that I'll miss them when they're gone

what won't you do for me
oh my city
may I never really know
if I ever leave my friends
let me come back again
and still call you home

you spend your free time downtown
and I'm always downtown
why don't you call for me?
when you've got worries
the noise and the hurry
will be waiting there with me

with our friends and our drinks
let's get too drunk to think
of how we'll miss them when they're gone
