Zucker, Jeremy - Born For The City Lyrics



I could see it all in your eyes tonight
The city lights, they're flashing by
With your legs around my waist, yeah
And you ask if we can stay here, stay here
This is heaven if you'd never leave
With that t-shirt down not your knees
Brush the hair across your face, yeah
Girl you know we couldn't stay here

She from Mississippi but she born for the city, yeah
Just know when I make it that it's her coming with me, yeah
What's money if we ain't got the time that we're spending
Had to flip for a while, still talk gunna mend it

Feeling old for minute, haven't been home in a minute
It's cold where I'm living, where my heart froze, I'm a villain
That's why I'm acting tough, life passes by, I won't pass you up
Been through it all but never had enough
So I faced it all and never passed the blunt
Ok, girl, you know me, all the time that we spent last fall
Lately I'm lonely, late nights when I wish you'd call
Had a lot to say, thought through it all these past couple days
I'll call it off if you come with me
When I make it out let me know what you say

I could see it all in your eyes tonight
The city lights, they're flashing by
With your legs around my waist, yeah
And you ask if we can stay here, stay here
This is heaven if you'd never leave
With that t-shirt down not your knees
Brush the hair across your face, yeah
Girl you know we couldn't stay here

She from Mississippi but she born for the city, yeah
Just know when I make it that it's her coming with me, yeah
What's money if we ain't got the time that we're spending
Had to flip for a while, still talk gunna mend it

After the summer passed
The rain had followed me, yeah
And then I flew out west
Since then I been different inside
Shit don't feel the same
Faces all around telling me that's just life
Hide it with these games
Always looking back when it was simple, girl
But you know about that, love
Problems only gunna add up

I could see it all in your eyes tonight
The city lights, they're flashing by
With your legs around my waist, yeah
And you ask if we can stay here, stay here
This is heaven if you'd never leave
With that t-shirt down not your knees
Brush the hair across your face, yeah
Girl you know we couldn't stay here

    im assuming you got the lyrics off of genius, but theyre incorrect. here's the corrected version

    [Chorus]
    I could see it all in your eyes tonight
    The city lights, they're flashing by
    With your legs around my waist, yeah
    And you ask if we can stay here, stay here
    This is heaven if you'd never leave
    With that t-shirt down to your knees
    Brush the hair across your face, yeah
    Girl you know we couldn't stay here

    [Hook]
    She from Mississippi but she born for the city, yeah
    Just know when I make it that it's her coming with me, yeah
    What's money if we ain't got the time that we're spending
    Shit broke for awhile, still time couldn't mend it

    [Verse 1]
    Feeling old for a minute, haven't been home in a minute
    It's cold where I'm living, where my heart froze, I'm a villain
    That's why I'm acting tough, life passes by, I won't pass you up
    Been through it all but never had enough
    So I faced it all and never passed a blunt
    Ok, girl, you know me, all the time that we spent last fall
    Lately I'm lonely, late nights when I wish you'd call
    Had a lot to say, thought through it all these past couple days
    I'll call it off if you come with me
    When I make it out let me know what you say

    [Chorus]
    I could see it all in your eyes tonight
    The city lights, they're flashing by
    With your legs around my waist, yeah
    And you ask if we can stay here, stay here
    This is heaven if you'd never leave
    With that t-shirt down to your knees
    Brush the hair across your face, yeah
    Girl you know we couldn't stay here

    [Hook]
    She from Mississippi but she born for the city, yeah
    Just know when I make it that it's her coming with me, yeah
    What's money if we ain't got the time that we're spending
    Shit broke for awhile, still time couldn't mend it

    [Verse 2]
    After the summer passed
    The rain it followed me, yeah
    And then I flew out west
    Since then I been different inside
    Shit don't feel the same
    Faces all around telling me that's just life
    Had it with these games
    Always looking back when it was simple, girl
    What you know about that, love
    Problems only gunna add up

    [Chorus]
    I could see it all in your eyes tonight
    The city lights, they're flashing by
    With your legs around my waist, yeah
    And you ask if we can stay here, stay here
    This is heaven if you'd never leave
    With that t-shirt down to your knees
    Brush the hair across your face, yeah
    Girl you know we couldn't stay here

    key differences are "shit broke for awhile still time couldn't mend it" replaces "had to flip for a while still talk gunna mend it" and "always lookin back when it was simple girl what you know about that love" replaces "always lookin back when it was simple girl but you know about that love"

    the second lyric i changed references the previous song on the ep west "simple" where the hook is "let's make this simple girl, what ya know about that love."
