I Came To The City (LiTLR)

another for the RPM ….Live in the living room

I came to the city
A G D FsharpM A

I CAME TO THIS CITY
I WAS WANTING IT ALL
I CAME TO THIS CITY
TO HAVE MYSELF A BALL
I CAME TO THE CITY TO SHOW THEM HOW WELL THAT I COULD SING
I CAME TOO THE CITY SO THE STORY COULD BEGIN

I WANTED LOVE
I WANTED FAME
I WANTED MY NAMEUP THERE IN LIGHTS

I LIVE IN THE CITY
BUT THE LIVINGS TO FAST FOR ME
I NEED SOME SUNSHINE
BUT I LIVE IN THE SHADOWS WHERE I’M NOT SEEN
I CAME TO THE CITY
TO GET A HOLD OF THAT DREAM
BUT I FOUND NOTHING
BUT TO LEARN TO SWIM UPSTREAM

CHORUS

NOW I SIT IN A DOORWAY
WATCHING THE PASS OF TIME
I SEE THE FEET BLURR BY
AS I GIVE THEM THE SAME OLD LINE
MY DREAM HAS BROKEN BUT THE SUN IT STILL SHINES
I CAME TO THIS CITY AT THE WRONG TIME

CHORUS

YOU CAN’T ALWAYS GET WHAT YOU WANNA OUT OF THIS LIFE
BUT WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF YOU DIDN’T EVEN TRY
TIME WOULD FLY ON BY TO WHERE YOU WOULD DIE
NOW AIN’T IT BETTER THAT AT LEAST YOU TRIED

CHORUS

I CAME TO THIS CITY
I WAS WANTING IT ALL
I CAME TO THIS CITY
TO HAVE MYSELF A BALL
I CAME TO THE CITY TO SHOW THEM HOW WELL THAT I COULD SING
I CAME TOO THE CITY SO A STORY COULD BEGIN

CHORUS

BUT I LEARNED A LESSON ABOUT MY LIFE
HOW THE JOURNEY CAN CUTS AWAY DREAMS LIKE A KNIFE

BUT I STILL WANT THAT LOVE BUT I’M NOT TOO BOTHERED ABOUT THE FAME OR MY NAME IN LIGHTS
