capitol city lyrics – wilco

“capitol city”

capitol city, skyline photo
skyscr*pers shine, the sun’s so
low in the sky
secretaries at the hot dog vendors
cabs honk at the bicycle messengers
rolling by
i can’t call with a subway token
anyway, the phones are all broken
i wish you were here, better yet i wish i was there with you

[hook]
you wouldn’t like it here
you should stay right
breathin’ that country air
you wouldn’t like it here..

capitol towers radiate a steam vent
scream along with the clarinets and
arguments echo down the hall

i can’t sleep, i can’t wake up
shakin’ up, maybe we should break up
i wish you were here, better yet
i wish i was there with you

[hook]

capitol city, skyline photo
picture postcards [?] so low in the sky
i can’t smile when my heart’s still broken
far away, in love and unspoken
i wish you were here
or i was there with you..
