about

lyrics

I like books where you can rip out the pages
From what I've learned, life always rearranges and lets you down
Don't let it get you down
In this world, it is worth waiting
Sometimes I think you don't know what you're saying
Get me out
Get me out of this town

These American Cities
These American streets
These American boys with their Southern charms when they talk to me
And my Canadian ways
Believing what they say
I'm gonna check my head before I ever get back again

I was up in arms
You were a write-off
Maybe you should just take the night off
I don't where it is that you go
And now I'm out of options and I'm stranded
And you've been drinking ever since we landed
Well if I'd known I would have just gone home

In these American Cities
These American streets
These American boys with their Southern charms when they talk to me
My Canadian ways
Believing what they say
I'm gonna check my head before I ever get back again

Between the James and the boarded up dreams
Of a city decidedly lost
I was split, cut, divided in two
Void of a reason and waiting for you
Void of a reason and waiting for you

These American Cities
These American streets
These American boys with their Southern charms when they talk to me
My Canadian ways
Believing what they say
I'm gonna check my head before I ever get
Gonna check my head before I ever get
Gonna check my head before I ever get back again
