Midtown Lullaby

my heels still catch on that metro line

where you scooped me up

tangle-haired mess, that sin of a dress

and we called it love

you were one shade from darkness

prayed to shed you light

tried to find the perfect meaning, oh

in a worthless night

i remember us in daydreams

color’s all gone now

but still i paint you in good intentions

you long wore out

time would make us strangers

i’m dancing through it slow

cause you’re with me, in me, and all one can be

when lovers go

oh and i’ll be seeing you forever

but i've got to get off of these streets

out of this city

far from all the days when you were here with me

just your summer high

midtown lullaby

the places we knew

the faces we didn't

i see you drive by and i can't keep it in me

just your summer high

midtown lullaby


but i’ll be alright, alright, alright

but i’m not alright, alright, alright


now these chains have a rhythm as i'm walking

the night beats in and out of me

you’ll tell who asks we were just talking

cheers to forget tragedy

near two years since you were sleeping

with your heart so close to mine

now these words are all i’ve got left

of those days we turned to wine

oh and i’ll be seeing you forever

but i've got to get off of these streets

out of this city

far from all the days when you were here with me

just your summer high

midtown lullaby

the places we knew

the faces we didn't

i see you drive by and i can't keep it in me

just your summer high

midtown lullaby

but i’ll be alright, alright, alright

but i’m not alright, alright, alright


plenty winters come and gone

we've been strangers all that time

haven't seen Houston in so long

where i left all those ghosts of mine

midtown bars along the wire

whiskey tasted just like fire

i went out always in search of you

but i've got to get off of these streets

out of this city

far from all the days when you were here with me

just your summer high

midtown lullaby

the places we knew

the faces we didn't

i see you drive by and i can't keep it in me

just your summer high

midtown lullaby

but i’ll be alright, alright, alright

are you alright, alright, alright

we’ll be alright, alright, alright
