Alexz Johnson - Chicago Lyrics




Give 'em up let 'em go,
Will follow, won't let him follow.
Take a breathe steal away,
Let him play these games play these games.
Can't cry, won't fight,
Not tonight,
Not turning off these lights
Can't shout, can't scream
Thinkin' me,
(But I can let that be)

Holding on letting go,
Why do we do this we don't know.
Stepping out standing up,
Look below,
I'm still hanging no more.
Swept away off my feet,
Can't believe how I've been floating lately
Sense a new avenue,
Know what to do
Just gotta let it take me

On a plane I'm leaving for Chicago
Any place I go you can't run
Leaving town won't be found here tomorrow
Telling stories mine has just begun
Taking over
Leaving no traces
Only smiling faces in the sun
Starting over
Tying up my laces
But the damage is done

Run a wave,
The new rave,
Let it loose and now it's losing me.
Caught between being me or a tragedy (tragedy)
Riding high,
Cloud nine, won't let me through their gates no more,
Found a place, to escape
I'm out the door
(Leaving another girl sore)
Oh you'll be fine, about time
Need someone to hold back my hands
Let me loose, let me fall, they'll understand understand
Heard it once maybe twice,
They'll find you in a ditch somewhere
Spreading wings,
Sliver things are keeping you away from here.

On a plane I'm leaving for Chicago
Any place I go you can't run
Leaving town won't be found here tomorrow
Telling stories mine has just begun
Taking over
Leaving no traces
Only smiling faces in the sun
Starting over
Tying up my laces
But the damage is done

(Shutting you out, shutting you out, shutting you out, shutting you out)
I'm shutting you out,
I'm gonna leave you behind,
One step at a time.
I'm gonna do it cause I said so,
I'm gonna make it cause I said so.
Hey yeah yeah, uh, shutting you out
Hey yeah
Yeah I'm shutting you out
I'm shutting you out
I'm shutting you out
I'm gonna shut you out

On a plane I'm leaving for Chicago
Any place I go you can't run
Leaving town won't be found here tomorrow
Telling stories mine has just begun
Take over
Leaving no traces
Only smiling faces in the sun
Starting over
Tying up my laces
But the damage is done

The damage is done
Damage is done

Alexz Johnson Chicago Comments
  1. CrownJules

    Can’t wait for her to re release this one like she did for Weight

  2. citlallistar8282

    Love almost all her songs! This one's my favorite! She is truly talented

  3. The Unicorn

    Alexz Johnson is one of the best songwriters I’ve ever heard, and under appreciated (as she’s not a mainstream name). She’s definitely an influence of mine when it comes to my own music, which there are very notable influences from Paul Simon in Johnson’s music, another musician I look to for inspiration. “Chicago” is the best embodiment and representation of her work, and to this day, is still one of my favorites of hers. Only a shame that there was never an official release of this album.

  4. Riley Unanue

  7. kateybrooke

  8. 12raerae

    From what alexz said in the interviews, I don't think she's gonna be acting for a while.
    Anyway, I loved it.
