Lyrics

Calling all offenders of the bleeding hearts
Who’s gonna save us from our city tonight?
This one’s dedicated to a thing of past
How I hate to be the one who has to try
And spoil the surprise
But there ain’t nowhere to hide
For tonight

[Chorus]
Merry-go-rounds and turtle doves
Our history and the speed forgone
In this city of modern love
If you don’t believe me then you’re lost

In every paper and on every line
How the truth is there in black and in white
There’s no salvation at your brother’s side
But if love is no longer alive then love it cannot die
But there ain’t nowhere to hide
For tonight

[Chorus]
Merry-go-rounds and turtle doves
Our history and the speed forgone
In this city of modern love
If you don’t believe me then you’re lost

Merry-go-rounds and turtle doves
Our history and the speed forgone
In this city of modern love
If you don’t believe me then you’re lost

This is an emergency
Cause there ain’t no pity in the city of modern love
