lyrics

--Olivia--
When you meet the city
Don’t say my name
'Cause I know the city is listening
When you meet the city
I’ll meet my match
And we will call a draw

I would be nowhere, I swear
I have come back to life on your cold water, dear.

When you meet the city
Maybe tomorrow
You’ll find a job and a bed you can borrow
That’s why the city’s for people like you
To hide and to receive

She takes you out for the night
And you come back to life
On her cold water, don’t you?

When you meet the city
Don’t pick the flowers
Stay off the grass
Lonely, you will remember
How it feels to be loved

No more reluctant goodbyes
Separated by miles of land and water, dear.

When you meet the city
When you meet the city
I’ll be thinking of you.

--Ava--
When I meet the city
I’ll say hello
‘Cause the city is listening
I’ve been losing so long
And we will call a draw

Why can’t you see that I’m here because of your cold water dear?

When I meet the city
I’ll take my time
Find a coffee and sit for a while
That’s why the city’s for me,
To hide and to receive

I miss you most every night
And I’ve come back to life
Without you.

When I meet the city
It will Valentine’s
I’ll send you flowers, I promise
When I meet the city
I will remember how it feels to love

No more denying my body cries for your cold water, dear.

When I meet the city
When I meet the city
I’ll be thinking of you.
