lyrics

I was raised in the suburbs
But the city’s in my blood
Spilling onto the pavement
As panic fills my lungs

November brings the unforgiving season
The cold rips through my flannel and my denim
You told me that by now you’d have it figured out
But you were way off track, you gotta get back
To the hard line straight and narrow

You showed me what I’m worth, I guess I’m worthless
If I thought this night would have a higher purpose
I thought I saw my chance and so I took it
It got me way off track, I gotta get back
To the hard line straight and narrow

I was raised in the suburbs
But the city’s in my blood
I got a heart like a Mack truck
Tracking rubber through my guts

I never knew that I could feel this human
Never knew that I could cause this kind of damage
Maybe it was fated, guess we’ll never know
‘Cause we are way off track, we gotta get back
To the hard line straight and narrow

I get drunk and defiant
Screaming, “What if I’m in love?”
But your name’s on the tip of
Someone else’s tongue

It was a misunderstanding
It happens all the time
But it’s a taste we’ll be craving
For our entire lives

But I am not what you need
I’m not the answer to all your problems
You cannot fill the need
You’re not the answer to all my problems
I am not what you need
I’m not the answer to all your problems
You cannot fill the need
You’re not the answer
I’m not the answer

I was raised in the suburbs
But the city’s in my blood
I’m surrounded by people
But perpetually alone
