CITY & COUNTRY

verse: C Em
chorus: G Dm [F C]

stay my hand all arrogant
words we spoke & words we meant
& all the places that change
& we still get there the same way

[CHORUS]
& now...even the cities are calling out
& now...all of the cities are calling out

take these days they'll never last
the best we were has been surpassed
& save all they lost in the fall
& pray that they don't take it all
...in all, they'll take it all

[CH]
& now...even the cities are calling out
now...we live with mistakes we can't live without
now...all of the colours are falling down
now...the people who care have been all strung out
they're all strung out & left to fade away

scrape the skies will they turn blue?
you needed most what needed you

[CH]
& now...even the cities are calling out
now...all of the cities are calling out
