lyrics

Narrow the gate I swing in the pouring rain
Dash through the street I feel like I'm born again

Put me outside I'll be alright
Everything I need to grow is in the sunlight
If you get scared I'll be right there
Trying to run away alone is a nightmare
We can smoke pot and if we get caught
We'll just turn around and run until our legs stop
This is my fear right here
I don't wanna die here

Sing another song about the time you almost did what you were going to
The years go by and the tears run dry and the world moves on before you
The city is a bed and I'm tucked under the covers
The city is a bed and I'm tucked under the covers

Narrow the path I walk towards the rising sun
Hearts sing and sober shouts greet the daring one

It's a cold day but I'll be ok
No one's ever been allowed to have it both ways
It's a rough go if you don't know
Trying to make it out alone is a no-no
I'm so scared but who the hell cares
Everybody else is only trying to get theirs
This is my fear that I am probably gonna die here

Sing another song about the time you almost did what you were going to
The years go by and the tears run dry and the world moves on before you
The city is a grave and I'm buried six feet under
The city is a grave and I'm buried six feet under
