​Coney Island

This song is by Castles.

I found a letter in the mail box today
And I said, thank you for your thoughts, but I'm done
I said that I would never build this up right here
And he said, that's why I can't work with you, son

But I can't let this go, I'm on my way
And you can only hold my diamond ring
I go crawling back to the city I love
'Cause it's already taken everything

I'm going to coney island to have myself a dog
And reminisce why I still hate it here
It's all these people with their cotton candy eyes
It's so sweet
Now put the train in gear

I can't let this go, I'm on my way
And you can only hold my diamond ring
I go crawling back to the city I love
'Cause it's already taken everything

The ground is swallowing my options for release
And if it rains they might just disappear
I counted twenty seven birds up there today
I'm thinking that's why I still love it here

But I can't let this go I'm on my way
And you can only hold my diamond ring
I go crawling back to the city I love
'Cause it's already taken everything
'Cause it's already taken everything
