Lyrics

Capitol city skyline photo
Skyscraper shines the sun so
Low in the sky
Secretaries at the hotdog vendors
Cabs honk at 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

You wouldn’t like it here
You should stay right there
Breathe in that country air
You wouldn’t like it here

Capital towers radiator steam vents
Scream along with the clarinets and arguments
Echo down the hall
I can’t sleep, I can’t wake up
I’m shaken up maybe we should break up
I wish you were here
Better yet I wish I was there with you

You wouldn’t like it here
You should stay right there
Breathe in that country air
You wouldn’t like it here

Capitol city skyline photo
Picture postcard signed the moon so
Low in the sky
I can’t smile when my hearts still broken
Faraway, in love and unspoken
I wish you were here
Or I was there with you
