  • midnight in chinatown
    bars kicking people out
    stumbling into an empty street
    all of our friends complain
    about how this city's changed
    but it's only ever been you and me
    most of us talk too much
    never say enough
    whole world trying to disappear above the wasted words above the fireworks
    you've only ever been clear
    i was lost and you knew it
    tied in knots, you'd undo em
    tried to drown, felt worthless
    but you were waiting for me at the surface
    oh, baby, i love the way you sway
    when you're dancing to a bad wedding band oh baby, i love the moves you make
    when it's raining and you try to hail a cab
    i could watch you forever
    hold you and never care how long it takes learning to play that song that makes you sway
    i was lost and you knew it
    tied in knots, you'd undo em
    tried to drown, felt worthless
    but you were waiting for me at the surface
    oh, baby, i love the way you sway

    when you're dancing to a bad wedding band oh baby, i love the moves you make
    when it's late and you're trying to hail a cab i could watch you forever
    hold you and never care how long it takes learning to play that song that makes you sway learning to play those songs that makes you sway Writer/s: MICHAEL FITZPATRICK, NOLAN WINFIELD SIPE, RYAN PATRICK DALY, SEAN VAN VLEET
