  • You came in to my life
    You cannot separate yourself
    You came in to my life
    You cannot separate yourself

    [Chorus: x2]
    And I found that round here
    In this city
    That I won't disappear
    In this city
    I got nothing to fear
    In this city,
    In this city

    Close those doors
    Close those doors now
    Now, now, just keep em open
    Keep em open
    Yea, keep em open
    I'll keep on, keep keep on going
    Taking it in so, so heavy
    Take it easy son, this ain't so deadly
    Got keep on, gotta go on, gotta go on
    Take it all with what we've done
    Gotta push it push it push it
    To the top of the building
    Even when no one is feeling
    It might bother you
    Don't let it
    If these people just don't get it
    They can't express it
    They won't accept it
    She said it's okay that they may never give you that credit.

    [Chorus: x2]

    I've been down here
    Down these roads
    People pass through
    Some stay some go
    Standing here broke
    Not a penny to my name
    But she says she loves me all the same
    I try my best
    And you do to
    And all you want is something you can move to
    Everybody's gotta get their kicks somewhere
    Everybody gotta fit in somewhere
    There's, an open road
    And I'm traveling down
    Don't know where to go
    But I lock and load
    Shoot that sky till the moon explode
    Moon explode
    Now we're laying in a field
    White flowers on our backs
    Talking bout home
    But we can't go back
    I guess that's why we left
    So we could take a step
    Keep moving and forget the rest.

    You came in to my life
    You cannot separate yourself
    You came in to my life
    You cannot separate yourself

    [Chorus: x2]

    And I found that round here
    In this city
    That I won't disappear
    In this city
    I got nothing to fear
