Capitol City


Capitol city skyline photo

Skyscraper shines the sun so

Low in the sky

Secretaries at the hotdog vendors

Cabs honk at bicycle messengers

Rolling by

I can't call with a subway token

Anyway the phones are all broken

I wish you were here

Better yet I wish I was there with you

You wouldn't like it here

You should stay right there

Breathe in that country air

You wouldn't like it here

Capitol towers radiator steam vents

Scream along with the clarinets and arguments

Echo down the hall

I can't sleep, I can't wake up

I'm shaken up maybe we should break up

I wish you were here

Better yet I wish I was there with you

You wouldn't like it here

You should stay right there

Breathe in that country air

You wouldn't like it here

Capitol city skyline photo

Picture postcard signed the moon so

Low in the sky

I can't smile when my hearts still broken

Faraway, in love and unspoken

I wish you were here

Or I was there with you
