City Love, City Lose -Blue Water Highway

Out in the old town summer night
The girl with the red letter jacket is dancing in the street light
Caught in the pouring city rain
I’m crying in the road like a ghost town record machine, you know what I mean?

When there’s no one there to hold you when you say
We were awful young anyway

City love, city lose
Wanna feel my city blues
And all the troubles I am driving through
City love, city lose

Now we’re rolling sideways
We’re safe in the arms of a cold, unfeeling thing
In a struggle with its paper soul, well I’m not a ghost of a man
I’m not an illusion you can just call up

And that’s the trouble with your cotton candy love
You give in too much and not enough

City love, city lose
Wanna feel my city blues
And all the troubles I am driving through
City love

Well I want you to love, yeah I want you to hurt like I do
That burns under your steel
Something you feel

City love, city lose
Wanna feel my city blues
All the troubles I am driving through
City love, city lose
