when the city waves, you must learn to swim lyrics – company of thieves

when the city waves, you must learn to swim

i somehow
realized that i was using it all
realized that i was sh*t out of luck
sitting on door steps waiting for you
while you’re out there
half away across the world, my dear
i am back here in the states
naked as we go
sitting waiting for you

i never claimed to understand what i was looking for
i never made it to a plan where i was open for

i want to show you the city and the trees
i want to show you the grey and the green

so come with me…. won’t you please
won’t you just come with me
