Birdy - The District Sleeps Alone Tonight

BIRDY


The District Sleeps Alone Tonight Lyrics

Smeared black ink,
Your face is ashen,
And I'm barely listening,
To last demands.
I'm staring at the asphalt,
Wondering what's buried underneath.

Where I am, where I am.

I'll wear my badge.
A vinyl sticker with big block letters,
Adhering to my chest,
Tells your new friends.
I am a visitor here,
I am not permanent.
And the only thing,
Keeping me dry is.

Where I am.
(You seem so out of context,
In this gaudy apartment complex)
Where I am.
(A stranger with your door key,
Explaining that I am just visiting)
Where I am.
(And I am finally seeing)
Why I was the one worth leaving,
Why I was the one worth leaving.

D.C. sleeps alone tonight,
D.C. sleeps alone tonight.

Where I am.
(You seem so out of context,
In this gaudy apartment complex)
Where I am.
(A stranger with your door key,
Explaining that I am just visiting)
Where I am.
(And I am finally seeing)
Why I was the one worth leaving,
Why I was the one worth leaving.

The district sleeps alone tonight,
After the bars turn out their lights,
(Where I am)
And send the autos swerving,
into the loneliest evening.
(Where I am)
And I am finally seeing,
Why I was the one worth leaving,
Why I was the one worth leaving,
Why I was the one worth leaving,
Why I was the one worth leaving.
