lyrics

We were growing up
We were going out
Diamonds in our eyes had cut us out

It was 4:00
But we hadn't slept
Running up the block with stars above our heads

And I felt so dizzy
They called me light
They gave me cash and called a cab and called the night
I watched the city
Blink by like lights
I'd rather crash than ever make it home tonight

My head ignites with all those city lights
And I'll forget that I'm back in my bed before they get too bright

We were moving fast
We were flying far
As we drive around in circles in that car

I was one of them
But who were we?
Broken bits of glass out on the street

And I felt so crazy
We called it free
And that's what gave me every reason to believe
I watched the city
And she watched me
I closed my eyes and prayed to God I was a somebody

My head ignites with all those city lights
And I'll forget that I'm back in my bed before they get too bright

There's a pounding in the sidewalk
There's an aching in the cracks
And from my tiny town the sky's so dark
Now I'm dying to get back

They called me dizzy
They called me light
They gave me cash and called a cab and called the night
I watched the city
Blink by like lights
I'd rather crash than ever make it home tonight

My head ignites with all those city lights
And I'll forget that I'm back in my bed before they get too bright

We were growing up
We were going out
Diamonds in our eyes had cut us out
