​Can't Sink This Town

This song is by Freedy Johnston and appears on the album This Perfect World (1994).

A barefoot whore
Walking by a famous clock
Against her door
Waiting for the chimes to start

Can't sink this town
Pull the gates and bring it down
I'd gladly drown and let you leave me lonely

She pulled the cork
On a night like this she never works
I said, "No more."
Do I think I'm understood with her?

Can't sink this town
Looking back across the sea
I'd gladly drown
I thought you said you were lonely

Tell you what
Is a broken promise cheap enough
It's all I got,
Look so sad, talk so tough

Can't sink this town
Looking back across the sea
I'd gladly drown
I thought you said you were lonely
I thought you said you were lonely
I thought you said you were lonely
