lyrics

Longing for company
Just me and my memories
Of what I used to be
Reality’s blinding

Just need a hit at daybreak
And from my alleyway
My soul is drawn to these streets
Though home is far away
Misunderstanding by you
Is now on full display
Keep reaching for you but you’re pulling away
So I say

These city streets is cold
When you’re all alone
But these streets they are
My home

Dirty down to the soul
Ashamed of my reflection
Surviving on things left behind
By you, more fortunate than i

Willing to work for the day
Holding my demons at bay
Though I’ve been out here for years
I’d gladly trade it away
But every time that I try
Don’t hear a word that I say
Keep reaching for you but you’re pulling away
So I stay

These city streets is cold
When you’re all alone
But these streets they are
My home

Seeking any victory
Against this affliction
Fight as hard as I can
Til the blood seeps from my hands
Just trying to survive
Though the truth you deny
But myself I won’t hide
Stuck living a lie
I would love the monotony
Of providing for a family
Won’t be bathing in glory
But at least be eating

Make it day by day
And keep my dignity
Finally, freely,
Leave these
City streets (These city streets is cold)
