Lyrics:

Can you feel it?
That beating,
Of the city as it knocks you to the ground

I want this,
But I'm reeling,
And I wonder how I fell from so far down

And happiness is overrated
But there's some days I wanna say this

Let's leave town and build a house Where the phones don't work
and no one's around
Just you and I, you and I
We'll smooth the wrinkles from our heads
Trade the daily grind for a feather bed Just you and I, you and I
And I wanna leave this fight behind, But my dreams need a little more time

It's just ego
Thoughts of winning
That keeps you hanging on til you push through
It's the song of
So many
But getting there is just your point of view
And all these dreams are overrated
And maybe we've already made it

Let's leave town and build a house Where the phones don't work
and no one's around
Just you and I, you and I
We'll smooth the wrinkles from our heads
Trade the daily grind for a feather bed Just you and I, you and I
And I wanna leave this whole mess behind,
But my dreams need a little more time

When am I gonna live up?
I'm just keeping my chin up
Where's the line
How much more do I have to give up? There's a price
For being shackled to this fight
Life can seem so unforgiving
When you're always knocking down What you're building

Can you feel it?
That beating
Of the city as it knocks you to the ground
