this city is contagious lyrics – the cab

“this city is contagious”

the word is out
this town can hardly breathe
(oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)
when air is filled with dust and dying dreams
(oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)
attaching wings to all the sights
we’re making sure these buildings fly
we worked too hard to leave without a fight
(oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)
go ahead and tell everyone you know
we stole the show

right now, this town is for the taking
we’ll bring neon to its knees
our time to shine beyond the pavement
we got everything we need
so turn the music up
you’re hearing more than sound
right now, this town is for the taking
and it’s all we’ll ever need

the word is out
this town, it never sleeps
(oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)
a feeding ground for those who still believe
(oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)
kissing curbs to bide our time
on this last night to feel alive
we will never leave this place behind
(oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)
go ahead and tell everyone you know
we stole the show

right now, this town is for the taking
we’ll bring neon to its knees
our time to shine beyond the pavement
we got everything we need
so turn the music up
you’re hearing more than sound
right now, this town is for the taking
and it’s all we’ll ever need

make us
this city’s contagious
caught inside its pages
we are leaving it all
hate us
it’ll only save us
stronger than we came up
we are leaving it all

make us
this city’s contagious
caught inside its pages
we are leaving it all
hate us (right now, this town is for the taking)
it’ll only save us (bring neon to its knees)
stronger than we came up (our time to shine beyond the pavement)
we are leaving it all (we got everything we need)

right now, this town is for the taking
we’ll bring neon to its knees
our time to shine beyond the pavement
we got everything we need
so turn the music up (so turn the music up)
you’re hearing more than sound (hearing more than sound)
right now, this town is for the taking
and it’s all we’ll ever need
