Hundred-Story City Song Lyrics

Hundred-Story City What am I doing here

In the middle of freaking New York City



Blurting out proposals and holding

Cabernet And what am I doing here with Claire

Trying to push our lives somewhere

She clearly doesn't want since she is gone

And if we're moving nowhere

Should I move on I moved to the city

And I thought I couldn't take it

And certainly I never thought I'd stay

But then she came along and was

The one thing in the city

That made me feel like I belonged here

Every single day

No matter where she'd take me

Somehow she would always make me feel a Part of some great tapestry

The world had spun And I could always look at her And not feel so alone

But suddenly that's done Isn't it...

Cause now I can't make heads or tails

Of what we have been doing

I thought stepping up and moving in

Would make things clear

The one thing in the city

That I always thought was certain

Was that she and I were working hard

To build a future here

And maybe I was careless

Maybe I should try to wear less

Of my heart upon my sleeve

And let her say goodbye

But I don't want to start that now

I don't want to let go

Cause she's the only reason why

I'm livin in this hundred story city

Where you've got to hold on tight

To what you care for

She's why I'm one out of a hundred million people

Sticking out the angry cars

The crowded streets, the lack of stars

Putting up with so much that it's all a blur

And that's what I've been doing Just to be with her

So I don't understand what I'm supposed to do now

(Why are there so many people? Hey! Hello!)

(I don't understand these people always standing still)

(Why am I always standing still)

I don't want to be a person who is always standing still

I wish that I could make the people disappear

Except for her

(No crowds)(No moms)(A flier) (Some space) (More room to get through)

I just want to see her

(No bikes no walls no buildings in my way)

What am I doin in this hundred story city

Where you're always moving fast

But going nowhere

Oh I don't care if there's a hundred million people

I just want to be with one I always told you

Claire That there was nothing we wouldn't make it through

But you've unearthed a break up clause

Which is wanting to put life on pause

So Jesus Claire What now
