Matt & Kim - Block After Block Lyrics




Now this is all me, now this is all me

Watch out for late phone calls
Wheat paste and concrete walls

Go too far, live too long
Time's too short, right and wrong

Block after block
Block after block

Roll down gates look the same
Different trips, different trains

Hey friends
Break in the back door
And turn it up
While the lights are out
Eyes closed and shouting right now

[CHORUS:]
Lights turn on
And dark turns up
Side by side
Dream bigger
Next in line
It's late
Now this is all me
Now this is all me

Eat when you're hungry and
Sleep when you're slipping like

Tired dogs rest their paws
Today we show our flaws

Block after block
Block after block

It's one way, now on Wythe
What was left now is right

Hey friends we'll jump the turnstiles
And cut it down
While the lights are out
Eyes closed and shouting right now

[CHORUS]

I think it takes a pile of bricks
For us to make a home
And I'm not sure but I hear
Mountains grow from just a stone

Block after block
Block after block

Everything I've learned
Every step I took
And street I've walked

[CHORUS]

    Dante's Lime Inferno

    @Nick Cardinale bloody f-ing lies, that pun was intentional. That's the only reason you asked. Just for that pun.

    Nick Cardinale

    @YoloToTheMax104 you should see the ridiculous response to this same comment on another video I posted. Someone was none too pleased that I even asked. But that was an excellent pun eh?

  79. DarthBilboGamers

    Breaking News, Matt and Kim can do whatever they want.

  80. Jon Shanahan

    In other news, some people have dead souls and can no longer have any fun.

  81. MickFuzz Zee

    I didnt know youtube alowed snuff videos

  82. Neil M

    I'm sure most people find this video fun and carefree, but having someone force their buddies and annoying behavior in my personal space while on a train or driving to work is extremely annoying.

    TheWrestle119

    Then new York City is probably not the place for you to be lol...

  83. Quincey N

    Kim is sooo sexxxxyyyy

  84. jlovebirch

    Amusing hit and run filming idea. I doubt they got permits for any of those locations and seem to be mostly on the run. Will be thinking of this video next time I see the Brooklyn bridge. And Kim is like the happiest person I've ever seen.

  85. antisky73
