Lyrics:

Misty haloes over streetlights
Strangers drifting down the block
Like ships passing on a calm, calm night
Sharing words, easing burdens, moving on

They're carrying that ache round like an anchor
From the peak down to the pier
They're searching from the bay to the heartbreakers
For a city kind of love

I used to cast myself among them
My place to prove each port of call
I'd follow my pride to the bitter end
And pretend to never bend, never fall

But I was carrying that ache round like an anchor
From the pier up to the peak
I was searching from the bay to the heartbreakers
For a city kind of love

The pulse of the rooftops, the pound of the sea
Were just another place to be
Until your heart raced for me

Catching fingers under streetlights
To wring affection from the fog
I cover your lips with my fingertips
My heart heard those pretty words you're thinking of

Now we're burying that ache deep like an anchor
Now the course is finally clear
You bring me to the bay from the heartbreakers
For a city kind of love
