lyrics

I know you're becoming quite popular now
but you know that I've always had a thing for you
with your flaws and all
I don't belong to the old school
that knew you in your prime
I've only ever known you weathered,
left for dead but quietly filled with life

As the sun sets on a rooftop in Fairview
and the newcomers sip their champagne
I reflect on the hardship you've seen
and how it stains the concrete
Give the others their mountains and forest
as we walk through the dirt and the grime
see a light turning on in the distance
and I know this city is mine

What a privileged position to be in
beginning of good things to come
but for now it remains a secret
shared by those who see the gold beneath the dust
We've read about the past
but we choose not to let it haunt us
This time and this place are too precious to waste

As the sun sets on a rooftop in Fairview
and the newcomers sip their champagne
I reflect on the hardship you've seen
and how it stains the concrete
Give the others their mountains and forest
as we walk through the dirt and the grime
see a light turning on in the distance
and I know this city is mine
