city girl lyrics – the jezabels

“city girl”

no more will i look around and wonder how it all began
no more will i look around for you

flex a muscle
turn a light on
in your blind spot
what’s the time fox?
thinking clearly
stepping up and over

and baby, i don’t wonder why
you feel i remind you of…
and baby, i don’t wonder why
i hit the ground running every time

but, gee, i get rush
i get shivers inside when you call
let it all unfold
let it show, fortune
you’ll be a city girl
and saying goodbye to the sweet simple life that you knew
ooh hoo, toodaloo
it’s true
you’re through
through with the old world

every month this sh*t gets awry
know my body tells a story
of the earth in all her pain and glory

running towards it, maybe power-walkin’
how are you?
caught the flu?
well, i only know i want you to adore me

and baby, i don’t wonder why
you feel i remind you of…
maybe i don’t wonder why
i hit the ground running every time

and going by the candlelight
and hoping i’ll seal my…

gee, i get out on the streets late and i walk
let it hurl, unfurl on the world, go berserk
get on your own turf

someone will hand you a sweet proposition one day
and you’ll say, say, “g’day
how you doin’ fortune?”
you’ll be a city girl soon.

gee, i get rush
i get shivers inside when you call
let it all unroll like a troll on you
get in the bar and grill
rubbin’ them t*tties on edges of cities and worlds
let the old control go home and groom,
you’ll be a city girl soon.
