​The City Is At Standstill

This song is by Liam Frost & The Slowdown Family.

Original video
I know this world is vicious, darling
Let's make tracks now
Black out all the city lights
And drink till we both grow numb
And lay down to sleep
I feel like I ran all day
And maybe everything will stop for one night at last
Your eyes are looking bright, girl
Like fireflies caught in a glass
You scrub up pretty well
All dressed in your finery

And how will they speak of us when the night is gone?
The incessant whisper in your ear that haunted you too long
How you shivered as the wind shook through the alleyways and boxcars
So let's dance
And we're like spectres drifting into the dark
Oh I know a place were we can go

I know this world is vicious, darling
Let's make tracks now
We'll burn up every history book
And start our lives here
Drink up
Forget all about the loss that a lifetime brought our way
To the end of violence in our fictitious war
For every crooked politician there's a thousand more
Drink up
Forget all about the loss that a lifetime brought our way

And all at once my eyes were wide
And love had filled my world with light
Oh love had filled my world with life
Can you see me?
Can you see me?
Can you see me?
Can you see me?

Solo

I know this world is vicious, darling
Let's make tracks now
Black out all the city lights
And drink till we both grow numb
And lay down to sleep
I feel like I ran all day
