lyrics

I came from the city
She came from an unknown part of town
Secrets I had many
From dreams it seems where they're often found

And she looked like a queen
The prettiest that I'd ever seen
Dressed in gold and some green
With skin that tasted sweet like ice cream

We would take our clothes off
To express our anger, our joy, and our love
But somewhere we fell off
We gave it all we had but it wasn't enough

The sunlight, when it spreads
It often grows the thoughts in our heads
'til we're blind with ourselves
While the ego spends it time getting fed

I believed in you and me
I believed it
I believed in you and me
I believed it

We were at a standstill
There were no more words for what we were feeling
I thought that we'd make it through
I guess I'm wrong in situations like this

And you wait and you wait
But there's only so much more you can take
'Til you bend and you break
But I guess that's just the risk that you take

I came from the city
She came from an unknown part of town
Secrets I had many
From dreams it seems where they're often found

And she looked like a queen
The prettiest that I'd ever seen
Dressed in gold and some green
With skin that tasted sweet like ice cream

We would take our clothes off
To express our anger, our joy, and our love
But somewhere we fell off
We gave it all we had but it wasn't enough

The sunlight, when it spreads
It often grows the thoughts in our heads
'til we're blind with ourselves
While the ego spends it time getting fed

I believed in you and me
I believed it
I believed in you and me
I believed it
