Allday – The City lyrics

[Verse 1]

Cheap highs in the night getting rained on

Faded in the city that I came from

Girls told me fibs, I was too blind to hear ’em

Put apples in the bucket so we bob like Dylan

Remember, driving around an all white Nissan

Thinking about the future using foresight vision

Listening to Dad as the porch light lit him

Welcome to the world of the poor white children

Story of some middle class mall rats

Prank calling everybody in our contacts

Drinking too young, drinking too much

(Drinking too much) Right until we threw up

Then we grew up now, we’re trying to prove stuff

Excuse us, trying to get ahead like a moose tusk

I guess that I’ve been missing it lately

This here’s for the city that shaped me

[Chorus]

Wo-wo-woah, I don’t even know

Thinking you can fly, maybe even so

You ain’t fly like me

You ain’t high like me, though

These nights in the city got me feeling out of my mind

These nights in the city got me feeling out of my mind

[Verse 2]

Yeah, I was a kid in the city that’s sun-soaked

Where some folk smoke a whole bag in one toke

Where marijuana is your partner, it’s marital

The city with more green than a salad bowl

In the city where the barrels roll

And my old girls looked like Bratz dolls

And my new girl looks like a true menace

Used to drive around faded, being too reckless

Recall all the memories in one glimpse

Recall my first loves as a young prince

Got no arse, I had girls with bum chins

Why I celebrate all the dumb things I’ve done since

All the fun shit, ignorant dumb shit

Why do we always gotta try to be smart? Shit

Rekorderlig cider, jet lighter, my blunt’s lit

And my girl’s hotter than inside of an armpit

[Chorus]

Wo-wo-woah, I don’t even know

Thinking you can fly, maybe even so

You ain’t fly like me

You ain’t high like me, though

These nights in the city got me feeling out of my mind

These nights in the city got me feeling out of my mind

[Verse 3]

Uh, yeah, the same thing on my mind in my cup again

Make my house feel like Buckingham

Try to understand we don’t have a decent plan

So we keep weed in hand ’til we feel like Peter Pan

Corners we reach fast, underneath stars

Me, deep in love in Dad’s dark green Saab

I’m ticking all the days off the calendar

One hand driving through the hills like a rally car

Faded, never fazed by the real world

And I’m looking real sick but I feel well

And I’m looking real young but I feel aged

Pill taste got me feeling like Bill Gates

Swear I been there, heaven is a real place

But sometimes the old city’s a steel cage

With me and my pale-faced compadres

Living out a skateboard soirée

[Chorus]

Wo-wo-woah, I don’t even know

Thinking you can fly, maybe even so

You ain’t fly like me

You ain’t high like me, though

These nights in the city got me feeling out of my mind

These nights in the city got me feeling out of my mind

[Bridge]

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

[Chorus]

Wo-wo-woah, I don’t even know

Thinking you can fly, maybe even so

You ain’t fly like me

You ain’t high like me, though

These nights in the city got me feeling out of my mind

These nights in the city got me feeling out of my mind
