Emmy the Great City Song Lyrics

The city called me so I came
It isn't mine to question what it said
I sleep until the point when I'm awake
I walk until there's nothing left to trek

And everyone was looking for an answer
And everyone was waiting for a break
I came and I was bored of it soon after
But I had nowhere to go and so I stayed

I dreamed a lifetime of this place
It seemed an awful thing to waste
Oh the morning fills my mouth up with decay
But I like it, it reminds me how you taste

Sometimes I feel you rising up behind me like the wind
But I still try to look away
What will you look like when you're old?
(What will you look like when you're old?)
What will I do if I don't know you?
(What will I do if I don't know you?)

I guess that I decided not to ask the day I took the road
Down to the city as it called
Sun making silhouettes of gauze
I don't remember you at all

So the city called me and I came
It isn't mine to question why
Sometimes the clouds will part ahead, I hear your name
It's like a choir in the sky
What will you look like when you're old?
(What will you look like when you're old?)
What will I do if I don't know you?
(What will I do if I don't know you?)

I guess that I decided not to know the day I took the road
Down to the city as it called
Sun making silhouettes of gauze
I don't remember you at all

They pulled a human from my waist
It had your mouth, it had your face
I would have kept it if I'd stayed.
