Birdy – The District Sleeps Alone Tonight Lyrics

[Birdy – The District Sleeps Alone Tonight Lyrics]

Smeared black ink
Your face is ashen
And I’m barely listening to last demands
I’m staring at the asphalt, wondering what’s buried underneath
And where I am, and where I am

I’ll wear my badge
A vinyl sticker with big block letters adherin’ to my chest
Tells your new friends I am a visitor here
I am not permanent
And the only thing keeping me dry is

Where I am (You seem so out of context in this gaudy apartment complex)
Where I am (A stranger with your door key explainin’ that I am just visitin’)
Where I am (I am finally seeing why I was the one worth leaving)
(Why I was the one worth leaving)

DC sleeps alone tonight
DC sleeps alone tonight

Where I am (You seem so out of context in this gaudy apartment complex)
Where I am (A stranger with your door key explainin’ that I am just visitin’)
Where I am (I am finally seeing why I was the one worth leaving)
(Why I was the one worth leaving)

The district sleeps alone tonight after the bars turn out their lights
And leave the autos swerving into the loneliest evening
And I am finally seeing why I was the one worth leaving
Why I was the one worth leaving
Why I was the one worth leaving
Why I was the one worth leaving
