Verse 1

AWe are the citDy Where the lAights come on and they nDever go out And the stAreets are filled with the childrDen's shouts I Awant to hear you sDing that song for mEe I Awant to capture oDne at a time All the lAittle brown flecks that made my eDyes go blinEd All the wAide eyed splendor that I put in a framDe I want to Atear it down and let it throw perDspective insaEne There's a lAight up in a box at the toDp of a post Giving diArection to the shadows that could uDse it the mosEt ATurn aside pilgrim at the soDund of her voice! It's wiGsdom herself that ofAfers the choice CHORUS FOh,D come to the citFy DWe're taking over the worFld Verse 2 same chords We are the city With the lights strung out on the evergreen trees And the yard lit up so the neighbors can see Come on and capture what you think you couldn't keep Turn on the light switch and everything's bright It doesn't even take a moment to erase the night How would it be if I knew this was true If I opened my eyes and tried to help you What good is salt if it stops being salty? I tried to run but my cover was blown What good is a map if it gives no direction? And what good is home if it isn't your home? Chorus 2 the same Oh, come to the city We're taking over the world Bridge My momma saiAd 'Son, you're a little man 'Listen to me and understand 'SAoon we're gonna take that car 'And drive away where ever we are' All palm muted LAet's go We'll catch a ride to the city LeAt's go where the streets are wide LeAt's go We'll catch a ride to the city LeAt's go Then Solo where it's all A and D, and then Chorus Again. This sound WAY better with power chords so use those. Have fun playing it.
