lyrics

this world ain't a place for dreams
not for people like you and me

i go downtown on a weeknight
i comb my hair, i wear something tight
couple drinks and i feel alright
though i'd rather be home
i picture you and you're far away
the pressure mounts and the edges fray
some things we do for love
some things we do for pay

night after night it's the same routine
life never quite looks the way you dream
i never became who i wanted to be
this city's no good for a girl like me

i write a poem on my lunch break
it's something small but that's all it takes
i fold it up and i throw it away
it's for me alone
i picture you, it comes easily
it's something small, it's a luxury
we'll take a day
eventually

night after night it's the same routine
life never quite looks the way you dream
i never became who i wanted to be
this city's no good for a girl like me

in a filling station parking lot
i smashed my phone, i lost the plot
and still the alarm at six o'clock
and it doesn't stop
and it doesn't stop

i never became who i wanted to be
this city's no good for a girl like me
the lights go down and you're on your own
the lights go up and you're no one again
no one again

this world ain't a place for dreams
not for people like you and me
