We stood. In an empty house.
With bottles in our hands against the wall
On the last night of the year,
the lights slowly started to fall
And you say, "this could happen for a reason"
How can you not have any faith
The beauty that surrounds us
it didn’t happen by mistake

In the heart of the city
Good hearts will break
Is this a test to see
How much we can take

You say you say that there’s an explanation
Oh, but it’s hard to see
I look to find salvation
In something more concrete
Because if, for the final destination
Is there either way
But should I receive an invitation
When it calls my name

In the heart of the city
Good hearts will break
Is this a test to see
How much we can take

In the heart of the city
My heart will break
Is this a test to see
How much I can take

In the heart of the city
Good hearts will break
Is this a test to see
How much we can take
