How did you do it?
'Well,' she said, 'smoke & mirrors...
Anything for love
Anything for love'
Low expectations
Are breathing down my back
No grudge unworthy of holding
I know that won't be hard, I know that won't be hard
You can't take the city, oh no
Out of a city girl

Well I don't know how we ended up here
Wide eyed and new money
With faded beauty queens
Well I don't know how we ended up here
Right before I met you
I had fire in my eyes

Down my the river
I found a little town
Down by the river
Where all the lovers go, all the lovers go

Making teenage boys feel
Like a Christmas tree
Ogling eyes, ogling eyes
I know you dread the day, when it's any other way
You can't take the city, oh no
Out of a city girl

Well I don't know how we ended up here
Wide eyed and new money
With faded beauty queens
Well I don't know how we ended up here
Right before I met you
I had fire in my eyes

You can't take the city, oh no
Out of a city girl

Well I don't know how we ended up here
Wide eyed and new money
With faded beauty queens
Well I don't know how we ended up here
Right before I met you
I had fire in my eyes
In my eyes
