We all moved to the city now we can't afford to live I've got air in my body I just can't afford to breathe 'You're in the place that you wanted to be to live the life that you wanted to lead' Oh yeah but we all moved to the city now we can't afford to live We all moved to the city we've been broke since we moved in I've got clothes on my body I've been wearing since 16 'You're in the place that you wanted to be to live the life that you wanted to lead' Oh yeah but we all moved to the city now we can't afford to eat And they'll say 'you've gotta try' And they'll say 'you'll never know' Til you try to survive In the place they tell you all your dream reside We all moved to the city we've been laughing since we did And our life is a party and we've never gonna leave 'You're in the place that you wanted to be to live the life that you wanted to lead' Oh yeah and we all moved to the city now we can't afford to leave

Too bad my friends left town, 'cos I've got no one to talk to Too bad my friends left town, there ain't nothing to say And you can laugh all you want to, I know you will anyway 'Cos they had 25 reasons to go and I had only one to stay 'Cos I spent all my money And I'd do it again To have someone to talk to Oh I don't care if you don't like me, I just need someone to say my name. Too bad my friends left town, it's about 88 Too bad my friends left town, if you can find any shade Summer in the city ain't pretty when you can't afford to pay To run your air conditioner for more than 25 minutes a day And how many times can you go to the movies Just to avoid other human beings, I don't know Summer in the city sucks

Mass shootings and Donald Trump Mass shootings and Donald Trump Are you sure you wanna move to America? Are you sure you wanna move to America? And I heard they shoot on sight if you walk in the wrong bathroom And no that doesn't sound quite right But I heard it on the TV So it must be true Mass shootings and Donald Trump Mass shootings and Donald Trump Are you sure you wanna move to America? Are you sure you wanna move to America? And I heard you have no right to expect basic healthcare And no that doesn't sound quite right But I heard it on the TV So it must be true

Don't wanna hear you can't do what you wanna do 'Cos you're not that strong Don't wanna hear you can't do what you wanna do 'Cos you know that's wrong And you can go but you know And you can go but you know Don't you wanna show the world they're wrong? Don't you want it said to everyone? 'Cos you know, when you go That you take all my hope And you know, when you go You can't reap what you sew anymore
5.
Let them say what they wanna say about you Let them say what they wanna say all day Pay them bitches no mind, 'cos you know it's your time When the lights are low and they all run to hide from you 'Cos you know it's true, the night belongs To the ones they shun when the morning comes And that's you People say what they say 'cos they don't know you People say what they say 'cos they're afraid Pay them bitches no mind, you'll catch them some other time When the lights are low and they all run to hide from you 'Cos you know it's true, the night belongs To the ones they shun when the morning comes And they know it's true, the night belongs To the ones they shun when the morning comes And that's you

I didn't know better, thought you were waiting for me One day you'd know and you'd, come round and save me from my Lonely teenage heart, my lonely teenage heart I wanted nothing more, than to have your arms around me I didn't know more, was even out there for my Lonely teenage heart, my lonely teenage heart And I know, you were the one for me One day I'd make you see None of these other girls Can hold a torch to me I didn't know better, thought you would come and find me One look and you'd know, you were the one to tame my Lonely teenage heart, my lonely teenage heart I wanted nothing more, needed someone to help me I need some cure, to stop the quaking in my Lonely teenage heart, my lonely teenage heart And I know, you were the one for me One day I'd make you see None of these other girls Can hold a torch to me Come on and save me from my lonely teenage heart.

That Girl 02:44
That girl never wanted you like I did, you can tell by her eyes They're looking at that guy over there Well this girl doesn't care if it hurts so bad you have to go home and cry It's about time you knew how that feels And I don't care if you've never felt the pain until now And I don't care if you're sorry for the way things turned out for us That girl never wanted you like I did, you can tell by the spite In her eyes as she tells you where to go Well this girl doesn't care if it hurts so bad your world is turned on it's side It's about time you knew how that feels And I don't care if you've never felt the pain until now And I don't care if you're sorry for the way things turned out for us I don't mind that you're not mine.

We've all got bills to pay, we've all got things to say And we're still drinking at two Three AM confidants are sometimes all you've got To show you you can pull through I'll keep you occupied, won't tell you life is kind But if you need to unwind I'll tell you things to know, I'll show you where to go Where people drink to the dawn But comes the day you're all alone The people you knew don't know where you've gone Now you know, when time is called I'll be here to guide you home We've all got bills to pay, we've all got things to say And we're still drinking at four Five AM confidants are sometimes all you've got To show you what life is for I'll keep you occupied, won't tell you life is kind But if you need to unwind I'll tell you things to know, I'll show you where to go Where people drink to the dawn But comes the day you're all alone The people you knew don't know where you've gone Now you know, when time is called I'll be here to guide you home And when the sun brings the day I don't want to go home 'Cos I don't want it to feel this way

Fighter 02:06
I was a fighter, not a lover, and I thought it did me well 'Cos I had a fire in my belly, felt like I could conquer hell And anyone who tried to love me would only feel my wrath Because to love is but a weakness and my fury lit my path I was a fighter, not a lover, and I thought that's all you need Got the measure of my opponent by their capacity to bleed But I live by a code, I don't cheat and I don't lie 'Cos if everything in love and war is fair, then nothing's fair in life There were boys who turned my head of course There were girls who stole my heart But I was never what they're looking for I could never play the part And there's only so far you can go in the spirit of never being alone Before you realise some people are better on their own I've been a fighter and a lover, now I'm neither truth be told But I still don't understand which one was better for my soul.

First you say you've got plans to make You've got bills to pay that you know won't pay themselves Then you say you've got things you wanna do Don't you know they'll do nothing on that shelf Well I know you wanna go, I know you want to go Sometimes you've gotta cross your eyes and jump Don't you know that you owe it to yourself To get out And do it soon.

Hey Kid 02:24
Hey kid you've got your head screwed on You know the things they told you just aren't right That road they sent you down leads nowhere fun And you can feel it deep down inside Well they can give you everything you want But they will never give you what you need And hey kid you know the time is right If only you could make them see That what they want, ain't what you need to hear right now Oh kid, you'll find you know which walls to climb Hey kid you've got your head screwed on You know the things they told you just aren't nice That road they sent you down leads nowhere fun And you can feel it deep down inside Well your mama didn't raise no fool And you tell whats wrong from right And hey kid you know the things you love Are always gonna be worth the fight 'Cos what they want, ain't what you need to hear right now Oh kid, you'll find you know which walls to climb
12.
I wanna see you, I know you want it too I wanna see you, I know you want it too Don't wanna hear you through the wall no more Boy I can feel you, I know you want it too Boy I can feel you, I know you want it too Don't wanna hear you through the wall no more People say that I don't know what I'm feeling People say that you're only in my head But I know what I hear, I can hear you breathing Every time I put my face to the wall, hear my call Boy I can hear you

Shove It 01:47
I'm gonna go to the beach and I don't care what you think I'm gonna go to the beach and I don't care what you think I'm gonna go to the beach and I don't care what you think And you can shove it, if you think I give a damn what you think about it Gonna cut my hair and I don't care if you stare Gonna cut my hair and I don't care if you stare Gonna cut my hair and I don't care if you stare And you can shove it, if you think I give a damn what you think about it And you can go far Don't dance to the beat and I don't care what you think Don't dance to the beat and I don't care what you think Don't dance to the beat and I don't care what you think And you can shove it, if you think I give a damn what you think about it
