Cities
by Anberlin



 

Donít try to wake me up
Even if the sun really does come out tomorrow
Donít believe anything you say
Anymore, in the morn, in the morning
Bricks to this old house are breaking
Steel would have weathered but now forlorning
Itís alarming how loud the silence screams
No warn, no warn, no warning
Addictions fill the table where the family used to sit
And conversate
Conversate to the sounds
To the sounds of a record player
With itís jumping needle and the lights that grow dim over time

With downcast eyes
Thereís more to living than being alive

Are you where you thought youíd be
So beautiful and only twenty-three
Opposition rests in the hearts
With no, with no, with no opportunity
Itís not that we donít talk
Itís just no one really listens and honesty fades
Like a politician lost in the course
All smiles and no one remembers our names

With downcast eyes
Thereís more to living than being alive
With downcast eyes

Donít try to wake me up
Even if the sun really does come out tomorrow
Donít believe anything I say
Anymore, in the morn, in the morning

With downcast eyes
Thereís more to living than being alive

(Christian/Milligan)

Behind the Song:
'This song is about someone who never truly saw the world for what it is, or could be. We had so much in common, but God & the love were not two of those areas. If I could go back and change this chorus I would, it feels repetitive when I listen now, such great potential.' - Stephen Christian
