lyrics

the billboard says love never fails
so I guess that it’s just people that do
and there are people failing left and right
every night on the 10 o’clock news
and every night there’s a story
that I just can’t comprehend
so I'll turn out all the lights
now it’s darker than it’s ever been

and the downtown traffic, the corner stores
the streets all slick with gritty rain
I could swear I’ve been here before
cause every city looks the same
now that everything’s changed

late night diner down on ross
sitting in a corner booth
I’d like to chat up the waitress
but she’s got too much to lose
they’re understaffed, she’s overworked
but her boss says it means more tips
her brow is creased in concentration
and I watch her chew a hole in her bottom lip

and the downtown traffic, the corner stores
the streets are slick with gritty rain
I could swear I’ve been here before
cause every city looks the same
now that everything’s changed

and I remember when you told me
it was me that you called home
and I remember when I told you
I wanted to be alone

and I couldn’t see how to stay
I couldn’t see how to go
so I made no decision and I killed it
in doing so

and the downtown traffic, the corner stores
the streets all slick with gritty rain
I could swear I’ve been here before
cause every city looks the same
but everything’s changed
