This City

Album: Not a Hobby (2018)
Charted: 16
  • I've been seeing lonely people in crowded rooms
    Covering their old heartbreaks with new tattoos
    It's all about smoke screens and cigarettes
    Looking through low lights at silhouettes
    But all I see is lonely people in crowded rooms

    This city's gonna break my heart
    This city's gonna love me then leave me alone
    This city's got me chasing stars
    It's been a couple months since I felt like I'm home
    Am I getting closer to knowing where I belong?
    This city's gonna break my heart
    She's always gonna break your heart, oh

    I remember mornings when my head didn't hurt
    And I remember nights when art didn't feel like work
    She wakes up at noon and she's out 'til three
    She leaves her perfume all over me
    But I remember mornings when my head didn't hurt

    Oh, this city's gonna break my heart (it's gonna break my heart)
    This city's gonna love me then leave me alone
    This city's got me chasing stars (got me chasing stars)
    It's been a couple months since I felt like I'm home (oh)
    Am I getting closer to knowing where I belong?
    This city's gonna break my heart
    She's always gonna break your heart

    Ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, oh
    Ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

    She got a hold on me
    She got me wrapped 'round her finger
    She got a hold on me
    She got me wrapped 'round her finger

    This city's gonna break my heart (oh, yeah)
    This city's gonna love me then leave me alone (it's gonna love me then leave me alone)
    This city's got me chasing stars (oh)
    It's been a couple months since I felt like I'm home
    Am I getting closer to knowing where I belong?
    This city's gonna break my heart (hey, yeah)
    She's always gonna break your heart

    Ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, yeah
    Ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, oh

    This city's gonna break my heart, hey
    She's always gonna break your heart Writer/s: Jackson Lee Morgan, Jimmy Robbins, Sam Fischer
