See through the shine of city girls

lyrics

Resting my gaze on every face
building a mask out of pretty eyes
and I have to keep it on
forever
'cause I'm going blind

Read the writing on the wall
Wind the winter back to fall

See through the shine of city girls
islands of perfume and painted doubts
and I'll let you be this young
forever
'cause I'm older now

Everyday citizens, please
don't try to pacify me
I'm sober enough for driving
and liquored enough to lie

And I have to keep this up
forever

Sign your name right under mine
though it's dark and boiling hot
there's a cloud with silver lines
we're the only thing we got
