lyrics

I reached out to the city
And it would respond
It would respond
I had the magic for a minute
And then it was gone
Then it was gone
And oh, that weight
Could displace the greatest lake
Are these bridges that I burned or paths I'm clearing?

I woke up early to a message:
"What if you stayed?
What if you stayed?"
Down in the Valley Of The Vapors in a digital daze
A digital daze
So what if you've been gone so long?
That connection is so damn strong
You could take the turnpike with your eyes closed if you had to.

So don't go doing all your changing
Unless it's really all worth making
You know I'll be right here waiting
Between your comfort and displacement

I reached out to the city
And it would respond
It would respond
I had the magic for a minute
And then it was gone
Then it was gone
So how ya gonna fill that space
With all that taking taking place?
Ever further up this road I am advancing
Pragmatic, but romanticizing
Days that I've been dancing through to you
