Downtown Song - Anberlin

Hey uptown girl, can you hear this downtown song?
I wrote a couple of words to tell you right here is where you belong

I bet you walk the streets
Wondering who you're thinking of
Hope you're looking for someone to hold
And not at all in love

And I wonder if you can relate to nights upon my pillowcase
Eyes wide open, middle of the night
You're the last thing on my mind

Only the lonely know
Only the lonely know
Only the lonely know
What nights like these do to me, yeah

I keep asking myself if our hands were meant to meet
I know this town is busy but I live on Public Street

We could get out of here, if only for just tonight
Ride like some rolling stone that wants to waste your life

And I wonder if you can relate to nights upon my pillowcase
Eyes wide open, middle of the night
You're the last thing on my mind

Only the lonely know
Only the lonely know
Only the lonely know
What nights like these do to me, yeah

Only the lonely know
Only the lonely know
Only the lonely know
What nights like these do to me

When I wonder (when I wonder)
Is it me you're thinking of
With that smile (on your face)
I pray you're not at all in love

With someone else (someone new)
Something other than me and you
Just want to be (just where you are)
If ever you're lonely, I won't be far

Only the lonely know
Only the lonely know

Only the lonely know
Only the lonely know
Only the lonely know
What nights like these do to me, yeah

Only the lonely know
Only the lonely know
Only the lonely know
What nights like these do to me
